VGedX supports validating GEDCOM 5.5, 5.5.1 and 5.6 files online. VGedX will flag parsing errors, length and occurence warnings. It does not validate data field content with the exception of date fields. You can head on over to the Bonkers page afterwards if you want to perfom a sanity check of your file. Options are provided for ignoring common warnings and errors.

VGedX Online provides you with the ability to fine tune your validation results. Specifically, VGedX allows you to disable various validation tests so that you can focus on the most critical errors first. All selections are preserved between sessions. None are enabled by default.

Select which validation tests to ignore. Note each of the below listed tests represent critical GEDCOM specification violations that will likely result in applications discarding your data on import.

  • Ignore Duplicate Records
  • Ignore Missing ID References
  • Ignore ID Reference Substitutions
  • Ignore Missing Continuation Tags
  • Ignore Trailing Data
  • Ignore Unpaired Ampersands
  • Ignore Level Number Gaps

Select which validation tests to ignore. Note each of the below listed tests represent common GEDCOM specification violations that are handled by most, though not all, applications on import.

  • Ignore Missing Records
  • Ignore Undefined Records
  • Ignore Minimum Data Limits
  • Ignore Maximum Data Limits
  • Ignore Trailing Spaces
  • Ignore Tag Occurrence Limits

Select which validation tests to ignore. Note none of the below listed tests represent GEDCOM specification violations. Each of these tests flag normal GEDCOM usage that you may be interested in knowing.

  • Ignore Unused Records
  • Ignore User Defined Records
  • Ignore Invalid Date Formats

Select which validation tests to ignore. Note each of these options result in multiple occrences being flagged. Often you are only interested in the first occurence of an error, so selecting these will eliminate duplicates from your validation report.

  • Skip Processing Failed Records
