      How can I get rid of and delete the Globally Unique Identifier (_UID tag) from my GEDCOM and database?

      First delete them from the database with this:
      Administration > Tools > Batch update > Search and replace

      Set search method to “regular expression”
      Search for : [0-9] _UID .*(\n)* (copy this carefully as all characters, including spaces are critical)
      Replace with nothing

      I recommend running a few using just “update” first to satisfy yourself it is catching the correct rows, and only those, then use “update all”.

      Once completed, export your tree. That will create a fresh GEDCOM file without those items.

      I copied the expression but the search said “Nothing found”

      Double check that you set the “Search method” to “regular expression”

      Edit – I also just noticed that I might have inadvertently led you to include “:” in the search code. It should just be the characters after that colon, starting with the opening square bracket.

      I did not include the colon, but first time round I had Search method set as plain text. When I changed to “regular expression” I still got the “nothing found” message UNTIL I cleared the cache logged out then logged in again. Works fine. Thank you.
