A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about an online service called Famillion. That article is still available at http://blog.eogn.com/eastmans_online_genealogy/2007/08/famillion-intro.html. Now the company has added a new feature: GEDCOM file imports.
Here is the announcement written by Famillion:
RAMAT-GAN, Israel, September 10 -- http://www.famillion.com/, the social network that aspires to connect the world through merging family trees, launched their new Gedcom importing service, making their on-line family tree building easier than ever.
Famillion is a social networking site that allows users to build a dynamic family tree and merge it with overlapping trees worldwide. It now introduces its new Gedcom importing feature, making tree building even easier, quicker and more efficient.
Famillion has a well rounded perception of genealogists and family tree builders' needs. It has taken many steps to simplify genealogy research, and the new Gedcom importing feature is no exception. It allows users with family trees in a Gedcom format database to import their data to the site, instead of manually adding members to their Famillion family tree.
Gedcom, an acronym for GEnealogical Data COMmunication, is a method of formatting your family tree data into a text file. It is an important part of any genealogical endeavor. Famillion's Gedcom importing option gives genealogists - both professional and recreational - the advantage of featuring any of their previous work within the advanced Famillion system.
The announcement of the new Gedcom importing system comes right after Famillion's Tree Merging Technology launch. Famillion's tree merging technology locates overlaps between family trees and suggests a possible relation between users. In addition, the site allows users to share content, stay in touch with friends, family, newly discovered relatives and more. Even with these amazing features, Famillion continues to provide its users with top tools for expanding their tree and research.
The Gedcom importing system is another big step in Famillion's expedition towards connecting the world. It takes into consideration that genealogy research is based on the ability to make information mobile and easy to transfer, and provides a simple and effective way to transfer data without having to build a new family tree from scratch.
