I got as a gift a pdf exported from Ahnenblatt.

Contains load of precious data, but the person does not want to give me gedcom.

Do I have any chance to re-import the pdf back?

Hi Klen,

well, know that sort of labour. The only re-import method, I could imagine in my case, was by keyboard.

I tried to figure out the reason for that way of getting data - I have no clear answer yet (maybe: make your own efforts, maybe: get thoroughly through the data and verify while re-typing).

Hi Klen,

I got in the past data in several file formats, e.g. pdf, word.
My procedure is
1. convert into EXCEL
2. convert EXCEL into GEDCOM

For step 1 converters can be found in the web working online or offline.
For step2 I use LIST2GEDCOM (http://wiki-de.genealogy.net/GedCom2List). Sorry the webpage is in german.

It is important to check the input for step 2.

This means e.g. for EXCEL no error in location or conversion of dates.
- Error in location means e.g. one cell to mutch or less or wrong separations for lines
- not all dates are converted into the format as needed.

I hope it helps before you have to type it in. :(

P.S.: I found for step 2 an older reference http://www.ahnenblattportal.de/kb.php?mode=article&k=76
- Have a look on Beispiel.csv in Excel (this is an example generated by Ahnenblatt in csv format).
- Add the same titles in the first line of your EXCEL table. The title name is imported not the sequence of the columns !! empty columns with unused titles must not be generated (see pictures http://www.ahnenblattportal.de/kb.php?mode=article&k=76)
- Store your table in csv-format with identical delimiter, e.g. Semikolon ";".
- Open the new csv-file in AB.
- Save in format Ahnenblatt *.ged!
