I have a problem when trying to share my family file with a person not using Reunion. In Reunion my sources look's just the way I want them to do. But when my gedcom are beeing opened in another software on a windows machin, sources are missing or some of the information are not beeing transfered. What would be the correct way to enter the following information into the source field:

National Archive in Hamar - Church book 2 Elverum City - page 41 - field no. 58.

Which tag's should this come out with in a gedcom file.

Got som 250 sources that needs to be altered - I'm afraid.

The problem is that Reunion exports notes and sources with references. This is perfectly acceptable from a GEDCOM point of view but many other software expect to found "in-line" sources (curiously, they accept referenced notes).

If this can help you, try my freeware called Gedcom2Geneweb that was designed to produce a better GEDCOM file for a publication on geneanet (geneweb software). You'll find it at http://mapage.noos.fr/alain.goubault/genealogie/Gedcom2Geneweb/Gedcom2Geneweb.html (you can also go to http://mapage.noos.fr/alain.goubault and follow the links).

For your sources, my software will not export all free-form texts that you could have typed, but if necessary, I can add this.

My problem is that I do have freeform text in many og my sources. And I send gedcom files to other member of my family using Legacy 6 and TMG 5. They always complain about my sources missing out important information. If my source tells: Church book 2 City - page 23, field no. 5 all they get is Church book 2 City.

Look at these two clips from my gedcom file;

and with freeform text:

Hi Legolas
have tried your software - it works with the sources as fare as I can see. But the txt in my note fields are beeing shortened. I dont know how to get it all. I could send you my gedcom file but have no e-mail adress.
