XL to Ged

 

XL to Ged is a simple online tool by Orba Design. Thant converts basic data for a list of names into a Gedcom file.

The data is entered in a an Excel template and saved as a CSV file.

Details of the process are here where you can download the templates.

There are two formats of data that can be converted, the first includes the following fields:

ID
Surname
Given Name
Sex
Birth Date
Birth Place
Birth Note
Death Date
Death Place
Death Note
Other Notes

The second omits the Birth and Death notes but includes Census details:

ID
Surname
Given Name
Sex
Birth Date
Birth Place
Death Date
Death Place
Other Note
Census Date
Census Place
Census Notes

The tool does not have any features for family links so is probably of limited use to most family historians.
