GEDCOM problems

humfreybear
I've been trying to upload a gedcom to Wikitree, but I get an error message saying the file is too large.  There are only 15 people in the gedcom, but the size says it's 15MB.  Here's what the first several lines are:

0 HEAD
1 SOUR Gramps
2 VERS 4.2.3
2 NAME Gramps
1 DATE 8 NOV 2017
2 TIME 19:20:55
1 SUBM @SUBM@
1 FILE /Users/loridosser/Downloads/billdosser.ged
1 COPR Copyright (c) 2017 .
1 GEDC
2 VERS 5.5.1
2 FORM LINEAGE-LINKED
1 CHAR UTF-8
1 LANG English
0 @SUBM@ SUBM
1 NAME
1 ADDR
0 @P117@ INDI

Later on down the list I have a lot of lines that look like this:

0 @N0065@ NOTE Records not imported into INDI (individual) Gramps ID P21:
1 CONT
1 CONT Tag recognized but not supported                                    Lin
1 CONC e  2740: 3 _APID 1,2469::378034526
1 CONT Tag recognized but not supported                                    Lin
1 CONC e  2743: 3 _APID 1,2469::378034526
1 CONT
0 @N0066@ NOTE http://trees.ancestry.com/pt/AMTCitationRedir.aspx?tid=106694505&pi
1 CONC d=22
 
I would say that 99% of the lines look like the above. 

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Lori

P.S.  The version that I'm using is 4.2.3

If you export a second gedcom, how does it compare?

Hello Lori,

When you export a part of your tree, please make sure to read this
paragraph on our wiki:

https://www.gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php?title=Gramps_4.2_Wiki_Manual_-_Manage_Family_Trees#Exporting_into_the_GEDCOM_format

In the screen shown there, there is something called a Reference filter
which should be set to exclude all records that are not linked to the
persons that you export. If you don't set that as shown in the picture,
all notes in your tree will be exported, and that's useless.

Regards,

Enno
