Gedcom tags are the fields names or markup for the Gedcom information. They are used in a hierarchical Gedcom structure to describe individuals in terms of their families, names, dates, places, events, roles, sources and relationships. Control information and other kinds of data intended for computer processing is also included.
It is possible to extend the list of standard tags by using user-defined tags which must begin with an underscore. The use of the underscore in the user tag name is to signal a non-standard construct is being used.
