A "GEDCOM" is a type of file that is produced by a Family Tree software program (ie RootsMagic) which you have entered your ancestors. You have to build your tree and export/save it as a .ged file.

Your kit number at FamilyTreeDNA is only used within FamilyTreeDNA.

Are you wondering about the uploading GEDCOM section of Gedmatch website to obtain a number?

If in regards to Gedmatch, you upload your Family Finder Raw Data (Build36 Concatenated Raw Data) via the "Generic Fast Upload" and if you have a GEDCOM file (produced by a Family Tree software program) you use the "GEDCOM genealogy Upload"
