Pedigree Assistant provides powerful features for importing and exporting data.
We believe you should have open data access to your data - you can freely export your data using CSV(text) and XML formats.
Pedigree Assistant can convert your data from many sources. It is your responsibility to only use these facilities to convert data where you have the legal right to do so.
Text files (CSV) - Pedigree Assistant provides a powerful and highly configurable facility for importing data in text (CSV) format. Your options include:
-Choice of exactly which fields you want to import, and in what order.
-Select delimiter (normally comma) and field quotation options.
-Whether or not to ignore any heading line (e.g. with column titles).
-Whether to import from a text file or from the clipboard.
-Whether you want to be prompted to resolve import ambiguities. E.g. if you're importing an owner name of 'Mr Smith' but you have 2 existing contacts 'Mr A Smith' and 'Mr B Smith', which one - if either of them - is it?.
The software also supports multiple import configurations - so you can switch between completely different import layouts quickly. It has equivalently powerful CSV export features as well.
Built-in Converters - Pedigree Assistant has built-in converters for 3 other programs: ANIM-ALL (ANIMALL), Compuped (v4) and the Kennel Club Breed System (KCBS). If you have previously stored your pedigree data in any of these programs then you can use the built-in converter to directly transfer your data.
Other Programs - e.g. BellCats, BreedMate, The Breeders Data Manager (TBDM), The Breeders Standard (TBS), The Cattery Standard (TCS), Cattrax, Compuped (v3), Pedigree Explorer, Pedigrees 2000, Pet Records System, Tracer, WinPed (UK version), and various others.
Pedigree Assistant does not have built-in converters for pedigree data stored using these programs. However, in many cases it is still possible for your data to be converted:
(i) Some programs include built-in export facilities so you can convert your data to a text file (.CSV) or similar. You might use this to extract your data for use in a spreadsheet (indeed, Pedigree Assistant has such a feature). If you can extract your data like this, then you can almost certainly use it in conjunction with Pedigree Assistant's powerful text file import facility to transfer your data to our product.
(ii) Some programs that do not provide text file export facilities are based on widely available database products, such as Microsoft Access. With these programs, the data files can often be directly opened with standard database tools. Sometimes, you can directly import data into Excel using its Import Data facility. In both cases you can then save your data as a text file, and then import direct to Pedigree Assistant.
(iii) Failing that, please contact us for further advice/assistance.
GEDCOM - Pedigree Assistant imports directly from GEDCOM (5.5) files. GEDCOM is a standard file format developer by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and is the de-facto standard for exchange of human genealogical data between computer programs. Our GEDCOM importer processes family (FAM) and individual (INDI) records in a highly configurable way that allows you to customize the import by specifying additional GEDCOM tags to be imported from the source data and transferred to selected fields within the Pedigree Assistant database.
