Mapping a family tree
Map My Ancestors is an application for converting GEDCOM files produced by genealogy software into Keyhole Markup Language (KML) files for viewing with KML-compatible programs such as Google Earth or Google Maps. It can also convert comma-separated values (CSV) files produced by spreadsheet or database software into KML files.
The application identifies places in the source data and Geocodes them to produce a list of latitudes and longitudes. The user has the opportunity to confirm map locations before viewing the data with Google Earth.
- Supports GEDCOM 5.5.1 draft's Latitude and Longitude extensions.
- GEDCOM custom tags created by Legacy Family Tree and RootsMagic are supported for latitude and longitude data.
