GEDCOM change WWW instead of NOTE


Recommended Posts


It's been a while since I have exported and imported my tree as a GEDCOM. I notice that the export (from another site) has changed some things.

At the top of the file the version seems to have changed - I assume this might be referring to the GEDCOM version?

	2 VERS 2022.08


	2 VERS 2022.06

And then, presumably as a result of this change in the version of GEDCOM in use, I notice that all the web links I have in my citations have changed thus:-

	4 WWW http://search.ancestry.co.uk/cgi-bin/sse.dll?db=1881scotland&h=252296&ti=5538&indiv=try&gss=pt


	4 NOTE http://search.ancestry.co.uk/cgi-bin/sse.dll?db=1881scotland&h=252296&ti=5538&indiv=try&gss=pt

I presume as a result of this, when I import the GEDCOM file into my TNG site, these links are no longer visible when I view sources.

Do I need to upgrade to a newer version of TNG to fix this? I am still on the original version I got when I started which is v.11.0.2

Is there a reference that shows which version of TNG supports which version of the GEDCOM format?

You did not indicate if the WWW and NOTE tags are linked to an individual, family, source or repository, so I will assume it could be any of them.

If you look in the Admin => Event / Attribute Types page (it may be called something like Custom Events in earlier versions) you can set up the WWW tag for each or any of those objects to be imported as you wish.  Click on the Help for this area link on the page for details on how these settings work.
