GEDCOM stands for Genealogical Data Communications and is a file format specification developed by the Family and Church History Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It allows different genealogical software programs to share data with each other.

Converting ANSEL to Unicode and back

  • Gramps exports and imports ANSEL GEDCOM, but not all codes are supported. Test the output on the character ? which is used if a character is not understood
  • Perl MARC::Charset module: Available on cpan, and well supported . Can convert MARC8 to Unicode and back. As ANSEL is a subset of MARC8 (consisting of the (extended) latin characters) it will convert all ANSEL GEDCOMS to Unicode. (:arrow:) More info, and a script that can convert: see the attachment to bug 831.
  • marc4j - Java implementation of a convertor, also MARC8 to Unicode. Unclear if it converts correctly combined unicode characters.

ANSEL/MARC References

Unofficial ANSEL to Unicode conversion lists

These cover the original ANSEL spec, now preseded by MARC8.
