Once editing and Behold file format, will the following result in truncation to conform to GEDCOM?
5908: 2 SOUR Citation Text: © Wiltshire Family History Society 2004 - Wiltshire Baptism CD (CDP1) Year : 1795 Date : MAY 18 Surname : BROWN Forename : STEPHEN Relationship : S Parents : WILLIAM & ANNE (NEAT) 5TH CHILD B APR 27TH Parish : CHISELDON
** Behold will read the entire line.(#3): This line including terminator is 288 characters long but it should be not be more than 255.
It will convert into a "2 SOUR" line followed by as many "3 CONC" lines as are required.
So does that warning greater than 255 comes as a result of an incorrect GEDCOM export?
Lines longer than 255 characters are illegal in GEDCOM. So yes, it is incorrect. Programs should not export lines longer than 255 characters.
