Thanks to both of you.

It's leaning toward a formatting issue with the way the source program creates the Gedcom files.

I'll post again with the final outcome.

Thanks, Rich

    To close this off, it would seem the Notes field in Gedcom files can accept many formats.

    The script below works as originally expected.

    Thanks for the help.

    #!/bin/perl -w use strict; use Gedcom; my $ged = Gedcom->new(shift); $ged->resolve_xrefs; for my $i ( $ged->individuals ) { for my $n ( $i->note ) { print "========================================\n"; print $i->name, "\n"; if (ref $n) { print $n->get_value, "\n"; } else { print "$n\n"; } #print "========================================\n"; } }
