Hi Ancestrians,
new person to the forum here with trouble getting a gedcom file to convert and load. Ancestris cannot convert my gedcom file from ‘Find My Past’ because it stops when it finds an ‘entity with already used ID’. I have opened the file in a text editor and found the line it has stopped at and sure enough when I search the file there are two times where that same ID is used. But what can I do to repair that? If the ID is 516 for example, I can’t just change it to 517 or 518 because they will already be used. If I pick some random other number will it fail to cross reference with things elsewhere that can no longer find it?
Is it really possible to fix your own file in a text editor? How else can I get Ancestris to open it? Any advice gratefully appreciated. Thank you.
