Where's Your GEDCOM?

Where is your GEDCOM?

This is a legitimate question.

I am revamping my online genealogy data, and I'm interested in feedback of any kind: good, bad and ugly.

My wishes:

  • a site where I can upload my data, and that does not own/resell/corporatize my data (see Ancestry and now by extension, RootsWeb) 
  • a site that is free for both me, the uploader, and my potential cousin audience
  • a site where I can upload my data, then take it down and redo when I have significant changes
  • in other words, like RootsWeb in the days of yore
Does such a place exist?

I would really appreciate any feedback on site recommendations. Comments appreciated. Thanks!

  1. My GEDCOM is on GeneaNet (, it's free to publish, free to search, free to contact anyone, and made by passionate people that enhance it constantly. And it's big: 1 billion people already in the database.

  2. Thank you, I will check them out :)
