File conversion .xps or .familyx to .ged & publish to website

Feb 10, 2011 at 11:18 AM

Hi I have no idea of what I'm doing. I'm trying to export the files that I've created with Family.Show to Gedcom. Is there a way to convert them if they didn't start out as .ged? I am also trying to figure out how to publish it to my family website which is on

Please bear with me, I know nothing about computers so if you can please explain this to me as if I was a small child... LOL

Thanks so much!!

Version 3.0 and above have a Gedcom export menu for that.

I tried to export the file but it doesn't work. The files that I saved don't show up in the dialog box when it asks me if I want to save it as a .ged file. :o(

Also do you have a relative named Samia whose mom is Aura? If so tell them Kellye from Temple says "Hola!"

Do you know how to publish this to the internet so it comes out as in this other website?: This is the reason I've been looking for this software and I found Family.Show which I guess must have been called FamilyView.

There's an issue with files in the last version. You can get the source code yourself and try to compile people's patches from Source Code | Patches page. Not everything from Family.Show can be exported to Gedcom, I think. Publishing to a website is not available.


Don't know who that is. I'm surprised you'd ask me that. Do they have my last name or something?
