Long Names problem in exported Gedcom
Posted by: David Lindley (ID *****9751) Date: May 05, 2009 at 05:48:48

I use BK for my 'master' records, then export a Gedcom from BK to my website, which uses PhpGedView software. So far so good; but I have a small problem with a few people who have several middle names.

For example, the name 'John Barnett' appears in the exported Gedcom as:
1 NAME John /Barnett/
whereas the name 'Domenico Dragonetti Joseph Barnett' appears in the Gedcom as:
1 NAME Domenico Dragonetti Joseph/Barnett/
and the absence of a space between the last two words means that (on the website) his surname appears as 'JosephBarnett'.

I really don't know if this is a BK Gedcom export problem, or a PhpGedView Gedcom-import problem. Has anyone else come across this, or know enough about the Gedcom format to point out to me at which 'end' the problem lies?
