What is a GEDCOM?

I'm sure many of us will remember the first time somebody asked if we could e-mail them a GEDCOM file. I know my first puzzled response to the question was something along the lines of "Your what's itchy?!!"

If you are just starting out, and haven't the foggiest what a GEDCOM is, then American genealogy blogger Dick Eastman has just put up a handy dandy explanation of what it means, and fortunately, talcum power is not required!
