I want to find a simple little app/software that would strip my GEDCOM of any non-blood relatives (plus spouses) and eliminate any non-vital data (only include birthdates, birthplaces, deathdates, deathplaces etc). (It would also strip events from living people.) The purpose of this tool would be so I (and others) can upload a clean tree for use in sites like GEDmatch, Ancestry, ftDNA, etc.
Ideally this would be a "one click" editor, with provisions to select which events to include (as mentioned above).
Unfortunately, I find a common "problem" with many of the DNA sites -- and that is, that users are uploading their entire database or they don't upload their GEDCOM because it's too cumbersome to review/edit their entire tree. Many databases, at these sites, include unconnected people and many non-blood relatives. This is extremely inconvenient for me (and others) because much of my time is spent determining if the user, in fact, does share DNA with me and are blood relatives. I believe these messy GEDCOMS exist partly. because there is no tool to clean their GEDCOM or they (like me) are simply not aware of a tool to perform this task. The other option, of manually editing a huge GEDCOM is simply out of the question -- at least for me, but probably for other's too.
