eTAG = export Transcript As GEDCOM.
eTAG is designed to remove the chore of copying & pasting data from a web page to your genealogy software package of choice. This can become particularly laborious when confronted with a Census record of a family with many children!
Some sites (e.g. Ancestry) allow you to save the data on the current page to their proprietary online tree, which can subsequently be exported as GEDCOM and then imported to an offline genealogy package. However, not all sites support this feature.
eTAG must be operating system independent. i.e. Run on Windows, MacOS and Linux.
eTAG must provide support for the main genealogy web sites.
