Gedcom export from Reunion for Mac,
error message upon importing into webtrees: "...encoding to UTF-8 encoding not currently supported."

No idea how to resolve this issue, I'm not an expert!

Regards, Luc

webtrees does not currently support GEDCOM files encoded using ANSEL

Look at the GEDCOM file with a text editor.

Is there a line like "1 CHAR ANSEL" in the first block of data?

If yes, then I have written an online tool to convert from ANSEL to UTF-8.

In Reunion export, I selected to export a GEDCOM file with character set UTF-8, not ANSEL which was also an option. So this doesn't seem to be the issue. Maybe this can help; the error code that I received in Webtrees was very long. I give you a first part + the very last line of that error message: Error: converting GEDCOM files from UTF-8 0 @I1@ INDI 1 _UID 6DF4E4FACD864B518979D9A3A9F4908F6876 1 NAME THEOFILE JOSEPH /VAN MOORHEM/ 1 REFN 352 1 SEX M 1 BIRT 2 DATE 2 JUL 1872 2 PLAC MOERBEKE-WAAS 1 DEAT 2 DATE 18 SEP 1930 2 PLAC MOERBEKE-WAAS 1 FAMS @F2@ 0 @I2@ INDI 1 _UID EF0C5D4F6076442EA94F92371030AAB95362 1 NAME IRMA EMERENTIA MARIA /DE CLERCQ/ 1 REFN 353 1 SEX F 1 BIRT 2 DATE 4 JUL 1879 2 PLAC MENDONK 1 DEAT 2 DATE 6 OCT 1947 2 PLAC MOERBEKE-WAAS 1 FAMS @F2@ 0 @I6@ INDI 1 _UID E93216745A534CACA9829143F45B29A162C2 1 NAME TINE JEANINE JOZEF /CHALMET/ 1 REFN 637 1 SEX F 1 BIRT 2 DATE 24 APR 1986 2 PLAC DIEST 1 FAMC @F8@ 0 @I7@ INDI 1 _UID BDC24FABA4B243CE9566C33D1D90806F7729 1 NAME KRISTEN MARIJKE MARC /CHALMET/ 1 REFN 642 1 SEX F 1 BIRT 2 DATE 2 SEP 1982 2 PLAC KAPELLEN 1 FAMC @F8@ 0 @I8@ INDI 1 _UID B3C9A1AE2F4....

Maybe this clarifies a bit the issue?

It appears that the line "1 CHAR UTF-8" is being merged into the following line(s).

What line-endings does the file use?

huh.. I don't know where to find that; in the settings of the gedcom export, I can set the line length at different lengths, and I choose the largest, i.e. 255. Do I need to open the gedcom file with a text reader to find out?

Can you send the GEDCOM file to me, so that I can examine it?
