I don’t know wether this is the right place for my question.. but with my best whishes to all of you for 2021, can you please consider what I am facing :


  • Using GrampsAIO64-4.2.8-1 on PC, which provides my .ged file
  • On PC, the file is not hidden ,has not write/read protected
  • Tryng to import that file with « Family Gem » that runs on  my tablet (.ged file has been transfered on tablet first)
  • The app returns EACCESS Error  (permission denied)


Thank you for any view/help

Hi Paolo,
The steps you described are correct.

Maybe you need to grant Family Gem the "storage" permission?
Settings > Apps > Family Gem > Permissions > Storage

Another solution is to put the .ged file into the app "external" storage:
Family Gem can always read from there.

Anyway I refactored the GEDCOM import process to be more reliable.
