GED File Recovery

What is a .GED file?

A GED file is a data file that stores family history and genealogical event data in the standard GEDCOM genealogy format. It contains data in an ASCII text format that can be opened by different genealogy programs on multiple computer systems.

How to recover lost .GED files?

Sometimes while working with a computer, laptop or other stationary or mobile devices, you may encounter various bugs, freezes, hardware or software failures, even in spite of regular updates and junk cleaning. As a result, an important .GED file may be deleted.

By no means should you think that the only way to recover a .GED file is always to create it once more.

Use programs for recovering .GED files if a file was lost after accidental or deliberate deleting, formatting the memory card or the internal storage, cleaning the storage device, after a virus attack or a system failure.
