contains your entire family tree, including all notes and sources to WorldConnect Project.
The WorldConnect Project allows you to clean or remove living individuals, notes, and
sources to protect privacy.

versions of your file: your original submission, which only you can download,
and the modified version seen by other researchers (which reflects the options
you selected). You can retrieve a copy of the GEDCOM you submitted by using
either the standard or advance setup/edit form.
