This means that if you’ve started building your family tree on another website or using a desktop family tree program, chances are you’ll be able to export your family tree in GEDCOM format and then you can import it directly into Mundia.
This is a huge time saver because it means that you won’t have to start your family tree from scratch. All your relatives together with their related events such as births, deaths, census records, marriages etc. can be imported automatically.
When you log into Mundia for the first time and view your “Family Tree” tab, you will see a question in the upper right hand corner of the screen that asks if you have an existing GEDCOM file to upload. If you do, just click on the “upload here” link and upload your file.
If you have created a Mundia account and chose not to upload a GEDCOM file upon signing up, it isn’t too late to do so. Simply log in to your account with your username and password. Click on the ‘Family Tree’ tab. In the upper right corner you will see the question, “Do you have an existing GEDCOM file of your family tree? You can upload it here.” Click on ‘upload it here’ in green and follow the instructions.
We hope you find this time saving feature helpful and look forward to adding many more useful features to Mundia to make your family tree building as simple and enjoyable as possible.
