Modify genealogy properties
This window allows you to modify the description, the main language and the author of any genealogy file in Gedcom format.
The description and the main language properties are saved in the header of the Gedcom file. The author information is stored in a Submitter entity. They are therefore specific to each genealogy.
Note that other information of the Gedcom file header can be updated using some other items choices of the File menu (Modify place jurisdictions, Convert Gedcom format).
The header might also include technical information which are not possible to modify via Ancestris, such as the software name and the last modification time stamp.
