FTM and Gedcoms, part 2. PDF Print E-mail

Well, I tried to import a Family Tree Maker 2010 Gedcom into my online data and ran into a few snags. This was to be expected. Before exporting I tried deleting a person and adding someone else. With FTM 16, deleting a person left an empty record which caused all the higher records to shift up when a Gedcom was created. Luckily, adding a person filled in that empty record which prevented this shift and unwanted renumbering.

I wrote previously about upgrading from Family Tree Maker version 16 to 2010. If you read my article on Reference Numbers then you'll understand my dependence on consistent Gedcom creation. Without a reliable Gedcom I am unable to maintain permanent links to people in my online genealogy.

What happened to the old web site? PDF Print E-mail

I just received an email inquiring about the old LatrobeFamily.com and all its data. The old site consisted of a descendant report of the oldest know Latrobe broken up into about 1200 html pages. It was very time consuming to create and update. I couldn't make any additions without re-generating and uploading all 1200 pages. If I wanted to show the descendants of another of my ancestors, it could have required just as many html pages, even though there were bound to be some duplication. The new site lets you generate ancestor and descendant trees for any individual, and I currently have 19465 instead of the 4000 on the old site. All of the information from the old site can be found here, but instead of being listed in one long report you have to click on each individual or family. I'll look into a way to show descendant reports similar to what appeared on the old site.

Change is good, right? PDF Print E-mail

To start things off, I'm currently at 19967 people in my tree. I haven't done much (of anything) on this site in the last 6 months, but I've still been adding names to the genealogy. A thank you goes out to everyone who's been contacting me with changes and updates.

Speaking of changes, I just upgraded to Windows 7, and it's not going to have any of the problems Vista had.
