If you aren't participating in the TALKO-project and haven't posted any gedcom yet you have acccess to the 6 first pedigree previews only. If you have a hunch that there are interesting connections after that you have to post a message about it. The collection's submitter then probably will respond to your posting.

If you have gedcom material to submit - contact me!

Hi Hasse,
I have yet to post my gedcom and I still have no clue how to do this or what gedcom program to go with--any suggestions?!
Thanks,
Tracy

If you are using one of the popular genealogy programs you always have an option within this program to store your genealogy into GEDCOM and send it to the Talko -project.

Gedcom is no more than an interchange format, ie. a way to describe family relations in a standardized manner. So...

If you haven't been using a genealogy program you have to choose one from the plentitude of brands. There are free ones out there as well as programs you have to pay for. All programs I have seen and used can export and import GEDCOM.

In the software forum (http://finlander.eget.net/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=39) you have some possible programs to choose from and the forum members have opinions of the pros and cons if you post a specific question.

Are you using a Windows box or perhaps even a Mac?

Hasse,
I'm using Windows box and I have been to the software forum to check out the different programs. There's a lot to choose from!

Look at Roots Magic. June has spoken very positively about that one. Personally I do my genealogy on a Mac so I can't point out the best Windows one. Actually I haven't seen any that is as userfriendly as Reunion on Mac yet.
