GEDCOM in RootsMagic and Ancestry – Part 5

from Paul, January 20 2018

Today we examine how the citation, source and repository appear in Ancestry after being uploaded by RootsMagic 7.

  • The citation should contain the reference to the source, being the cemetery, a serial or reference number and in this case, a uniform resource location (URL) to a web page stored as the citation detail.
  • The source should contain the title, author, publisher and reference number (albeit, the call number).
  • The repository should contain the name, address and phone (albeit the web page information was not uploaded).


The media associated with the source is not uploaded. RootsMagic uploads any images against a person, but not media stored against a source.
