The needed database table is created in UTF8 - the mod works with UTF8!
It is possible that even lower TNG versions can work with this modification.

Purpose of the mod

This modification allows you to search, input and store the GOV-ID in TNG. What the GOV-ID means, is explained in the GenWiki (currently only in German). For additional information about the Genealogical Gazetteer see here or in the TNG-Wiki.

With mod-version and higher:
For the GEDCOM import of the GOV-ID (tag _GOV) the modification must be installed and the additional column must be set up in the database table 'Places'!


This modification was developed by Ulli Heist. The additions are by Martin Pannier. TNG v11 fixes by Carlos Heuser


  • A working TNG installation.
  • A backup of all tables (at least Places) at Admin >> Utilities >> Back up Table Data.
  • A backup these files:
gedimport_misc.php (with Mod-Version and higher)

Automatic Installation

  1. Download of the add_gov_id_vX.X.X.X.zip-file
  2. After download of the zip-file, unzip and upload the add_gov_id_vX.X.X.X.cfg-file into the mods-folder.
  3. Follow the normal automatic Installation of the Mod Manager, as described in example Mod Manager - Installing Config Files to install the Add_GOV-ID_Mod.cfg-file.
  4. After the installation you have to select once at Administration >> Places (admin_places.php), so that the additional column will be added to the database table 'Places' to store the GOV-ID! Otherwise the next gedcom import will fail!
