Galizien German Descendants
Member Donated GEDCOMs

Over time the members Galizien German Descendants have donated the results of their research efforts to GGD to assist other GGD members when researching their families. These research results are collected in family trees stored in GEDCOM format files. GEDCOM is an acronym for GEnealogical Data COMmunications. Originally developed by the Family History Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) it has spread throughout the Genealogy community as a standard method of storing genealogical data on a computer. Since virtually all genealogy programs allow you to import and export GEDCOM data files users are able to exchange computerized genealogical data no matter what program or operating system they use. This page links you to a program that views the GEDCOM data files submitted by our members. Feel free to contact the secretary if you would like to submit a GEDCOM of your own.
