What is the meaning of "Missing Header in filename.ged"?
Applies to: All products

Answer: The gedcom file contains unicode (UFT-8) characters which are not supported.

If you have Windows XP it can be corrected as follows:

Open the gedcom file in Notepad
Then click on File > Save As
At the Save As window change the "save as type" to :All files"
and change the Encoding to "Ansi"

If you like, you can give it a new file name.

Now click on Save. You will be prompted with a warning regarding the loss of the unicode characters and asked if you like to Continue. Click on OK.
