Files with the GED extension are associated with the GEDCOM open specification used for data exchange between various genealogy applications. GEDCOM stands for Genealogical Data Communication.

GED files are plain text files, usually based on the ASCII or ANSEL coding scheme which contain genealogical data about individuals and the Meta information used to link records together.

Like any ASCII or ANSEL based file, GED files can be opened with any text editor. However, in order to link records and put together a genealogical tree they need to be imported in a specialized genealogy program.
