Hi Oniel!

Firstly, Welcome to GEH! :D

You can find all the placemarks you set in the "My Places" section on the left side of your Google Earth window!

I guess he means the file where 'my places' are stored in. I actually don't know that, but when you right click on the folder/placemark on the left side (what araT mentioned) and then use 'Save As' you get a file you can upload.

Ahhh! in that case, your 'My Places" is backed up in C:\Program Files\Google\Google Earth\default_myplaces.kml

But you can also save it elsewhere so you have a backup by right clicking the "My Places" folder in google earth and selecting save as; just as you would with any other placemark or folder :)

Does anybody know how to extract the address/telephone numbers
from the kml file?

Say, I want to print out a list of my save places address as well as phone numbers.

Just open the kml with a standard text editor and see what you can get from.. ; )
