Unable to upload a GEDCOM to add now data to JFJP #general


Alan Kolnik
 

I am trying to upload a small GEDCOM file that includes new discoveries in my family and am unable to do so.

 

Every time I got to the FTJP page https://www.jewishgen.org/gedcom/ and click on the “I ACCEPT and wish to UPLOAD my Gedcom” I get redirected back to the “Login to JewishGen” page.

 

I successfully change my password to match the new requirements and have no trouble logging on.

 

Am I  doing something wrong?

 

Is this a temporary problem or is this function no longer available?

I'm having the same problem. When I contacted JG support I was told the problem is arising from my end, but I've tried using two different computers with two different operating system's and two different browsers so I don't know what is really going on.

My tree is dated Feb 2018 and since then I have submitted updates, but nothing changes. Previous to 2018 I had no problems with annual or 6 monthly major updates. I would also like to know what's going on, as I have a few thousand names to add that could help a lot of people.

I have tried Google Chrome and Firefox/Mozilla and cannot get around the problem.

Since each program is different, you must read the help file and or manual FOR YOUR OWN GENEALOGY PROGRAM.  I suggest you print the directions from the help file before you start.

 

Generally under the file menu you will see a copy/export option.  This is the option you need to create a gedcom file.  If you have choices for the gedcom file select PAF, UTF-8, Version 5.x.  Be sure you select gedcom.ged as the file type.  The file will usually be created in the same directory as your family tree file.  Note the name before you save.

 

Follow these steps:

1.            Go to http://www.jewishgen.org

2.            Select Family Tree of the Jewish People.

3.            Scroll to the bottom of the page Enter your JGID researcher code and password.

4.            Select "I accept and wish to UPLOAD my GEDCOM."

5.            Read the screen and make the appropriate selections.

6.            Select UPLOAD my gedcom.

7.            Click the browse button and find the directory and file you created.  When you see the    filename in the field, click the UPLOAD button.  Wait for the message that says your    transmission was successful.  If you have a problem sending this way, see option 8.

8.            Select "Alternatively click here to send your file by email". Attach your file to the                email form that appears on your task bar.

 

If you still have questions, contact me directly.

Definitely broken. Repeating instructions won't help - step 6 gives you a log in screen even though your are already logged in.

This was working somewhat yesterday since I had to check something (didn't do the upload then). It's telling that the instructions include screenshots of Window 3.1 and Netscape!
