Character set

Technical information about this subject can be found here: GEDCOM Character Encodings

According to this paper the following character sets are supported in GEDCOM 5.5.1:

  • UTF-8
  • UTF-16

While ATM supports import of a GEDCOM in ANSEL it does not export in ANSEL. According to this information ANSEL is an old standard.

When exporting your data to a GEDCOM file, UTF-8 is the best option.
