Problem loading some GEDCOM files

+1 vote
I successfully loaded a GEDCOM export from MyHeritage but when I try another export file from same source it shows "It contains 0 individuals". All files tested is 5.5.1 file format.

GEDCOM 145411:
483045811_1_DF_3uljdc65v73ht4e5.ged (loaded 53 individuals)
GEDCOM 145459: a1dr06_28367369r3a06ddzhm55yg.ged (loaded 0 individuals)

Do you have any ideas what might be the problem?

Best regards,

What are the file sizes for the two GEDCOMs?

GEDCOM 145411: 483045811_1_DF_3uljdc65v73ht4e5.ged (loaded 53 individuals), file size 25 kB
GEDCOM 145459: a1dr06_28367369r3a06ddzhm55yg.ged (loaded 0 individuals), file size 506 kB
Another file with size 190 kB also failed

Myheritage GEDCOMs have been causing problems because they don't always export notes into valid GEDCOM format. A fix for *most* of these was tested this week, if you want you can send me your problem GEDCOM (email to jamie [at] I can test to see if it will work before we make the fix live.
Thank you Jamie for your great support!

I will try to load the GEDCOM file when you have applied the planned fix.

Best regards,

You can start by opening the file in a text editor and see if it "looks" okay.   Compare the one that works with the one that doesn't work.

Both files have a similar structure when I look at them in a text editor.

Only major difference is that last file contains more individuals (>400) and more details.

When did you upload each file?

If you did them back-to-back, you may need to process the first one before you can upload any more.
