Export GEDCOM from "Family Tree Maker"
To export GEDCOM data from the currently open family tree, just follow the instructions:
Select the Copy/Export Family File from the File menu of your Family Tree Maker software program. A dialog box ("New Family File") will be displayed for you: select GEDCOM (*GED) in the "Save as type" field. Save your GEDCOM file after naming it and making sure you remember its location on your hard disk.
A second dialog box will open: Make sure you select GEDCOM version 5.5 and Abbreviate tags.
Click on OK. Your family tree has been saved in a GEDCOM file. To submit your family tree to the Douglas E. Goldman Jewish Genealogy Center send this file as an attachment to your e-mail message.
