Text2GED Installation Instructions


6/15/2020 note: recently Microsoft released a new version of their browser, MS Edge. The new version's changes no longer includes the "Select All" option in the dropdown list whenever the mouse's right button is pressed in a FamilySearch.org web page. There is a work-around, however:

1. Left click the mouse button while the pointer is in an empty space of the Main Menu at the top of the Family Search web page (see illustration below)

2. Press the "Ctrl" key (lower left of the keyboard) and the "A" key at the same time. All of the text on the page should now be highlighted. If only a portion of the screen's text is highlighted, the mouse wasn't clicked while the pointer was positioned at the top of the web page in step 1. Try clicking again with the mouse pointer positioned as per step 1 (see illustration above), and retry pressing Ctrl-A.

3. To copy the highlighted text for transport into Text2GED, you may either press Ctrl-C or click the right mouse button and select Copy from the dropdown list.
