This podcast said that Family Search was one of the places you could make a gedcom. However I found this statement on the Family Search website:
“Exporting a GEDCOM from FamilySearch
Currently, a GEDCOM file cannot be exported directly from FamilySearch Family Tree. However, you can use partner programs of FamilySearch to get the data from FamilySearch Family Tree, and then create a GEDCOM file in those programs. Here is a list of the programs that are compatible with GEDCOM and FamilySearch.”
