LENEXA, KANSAS (March 13, 2008) AGES-online has just released an all new Genealogical Data Communication (GEDCOM) file export process. Subscribers can generate a GEDCOM file containing all of their own family data and transfer that file to their computer.
The new GEDCOM process can be accessed only by paying subscribers through their password protected account using the side File menu. No one other than the password holder can access the subscribers' data or download that data to a GEDCOM file.
"We take our subscribers' privacy very seriously here at AGES-online," said Ken Aubuchon, Chief Executive Officer. "We want to make sure that they have control over their data and who has access to it. We will never compromise that trust."
The new GEDCOM export process is fully compliant with the GEDCOM Standard Release 5.5, unlike many off-the-shelf packages currently in distribution today. The standard was created by the Family History Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to facilitate the open communication of computerized genealogy data.
"Genealogy software is very complex to write and the GEDCOM standards reflect that complexity." said Ken Aubuchon. "That is why there are so many Family Tree software packages that have their own interpretation of the standards. By following the standards, we are ensuring the integrity of our customers' data."
