Export Gedcom File ~ (ZPG) ZoomPast Genealogy

Introduction

ZoomPast is a free new kid on the block launched in 2015 and offers a novel online graphical view of GEDCOM trees. The intention is to fully support Standard GEDCOM 5.5 but it is not there yet. See the Import Details below. Visit https://www.zoompast.com/ for details.

The Character Set Encoding works for UTF-8 and all Unicode characters are supported.

By default all Media are excluded because ZoomPast does not currently upload from PC files.
However, it can upload via URL, so one route is to export fh to (MYH) MyHeritage Family Tree via its Family Tree Builder, then export the GEDCOM from its Website Family Tree and import that into ZoomPast.

See both the (ZPG+) Full Data Export Details and (ZPG-) Brief Data Export Details below.
