To keep my brain from deteriorating too much over the winter months I have been developing a Gedcom to GenoPro converter that I am now ready to release to GenoPro users.

It is written as a free standing browser based Javascript app that can be loaded from the GenoPro familytrees website.  All your data is held locally within the browser and nothing is sent over the internet so you can be sure it is safe.  I recommend that you use Chrome to run the app and you can of course use Chrome's developer tools to inspect the scripts used but be warned I am an old hobbyist coder so it isn't a pretty sight!

I originally loaded a lot of data into GenoPro from Gedcom files many years ago and was very disappointed with the amount of data discarded. e.g. only the last OCCUpation tag per individual was processed, the last CENSus and RESIdence tags were just held as custom tags and picture details were not processed with only some data from the last OBJEct tag being retained again as custom tags. 

My script attempts to retain every scrap of data in an easily accessible form.  Multiple OCCU and EDUC tags are catered for. Multiple CENS and RESI tags are converted to Contacts/Occupancy entries. Picture details are captured from OBJE tags. All standard Gedcom tags that cannot be represented directly by GenoPro are retained as follows, 

are converted to 'custom events' using Occupation entries, family events i.e. CENS|DIVF|ENGA|EVEN|MARB|MARC|MARL|MARS|SLGS are also converted to 'custom events' using Union entries.   Other standard Gedcom tags are held under a _GED_ tag and referenced in a custom tag Dialogue labelled Gedcom Facts

An additional genomap called Gedcom stuff is created to hold information from the header as a Social Entity with extra Individual(s) for the Submitter(s) (SUBM) and Social Entity for Submissions (SUBN). Any custom/non-standard level 0 tags in the Gedcom will be set as Social Entity custom tags.

So if you'd like to give it a try can can launch it from the {EN} App Launcher skin
 or directly using the URL

This thread will be closed to new posts but I'll set up another thread for feedback, issues etc

N.B. The script is provided 'as is' without any guarantees whatsoever, but as always I will attempt to correct any problems found with it.
