HI - looking for some advice. I am generating 1,000s (up to 20,000) of Gedcoms for a large community as part of a bigger, non genealogy cultural project. Beyond providing each individual with their own file, I would like to load (with all the correct permissions in place) these Gedcom files into a central repository. 

I have looked extensively - Worldconnect? WikiTree…. is there any advice anyone has for me on where I can deposit these for safekeeping?

Many thanks for your support!

WikiTree doesn't import GEDCOMs.  https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:GEDCOM#Uploading_a_GEDCOM 

How about FamilySearch genealogies? https://www.familysearch.org/search/family-trees

What do you mean by "all the correct permissions in place"?  Do you mean you want to keep them private, or that you want to keep living people from being displayed, or something else? If you want the Gedcom files (or subsets that exclude/hide living people) to be available for re-use in the public domain rather than the data being restricted by the terms-of-use of one of the other sites, the Open Genealogy Data project at opengendata.org may be another option. We haven't started collecting/posting trees/Gedcoms yet, but are eager to start. I would be happy to talk more off the list if that is something that interests you. Either way, I would be interested in learning more about your cultural project.

Doug, I didn't know you were interested in tree data also. I need to understand more about what you are doing. I hope you will be at rootstech.

Dallan, I probably won't make it to RootsTech, so I'll contact you off the list.
