In Topic: Organizing Facts

16 January 2020 - 04:06 PM


I'm not addressing the main thrust of your question, but this particular item about an error caught my eye. I had similar issues about entries for my parents in city directories. After discussing it with them, I came to realize that often (but not always) the entries in city directories are a year in arrears. That is, the data might be collected in 1929 and published in the 1930 city directory. And the collection process might take place at different times during a year.

Also, I discovered that at least some city directory companies had two sources of data. One was a house to house canvas. The other was employment roles from local employers. So the "sometimes a year in arrears" data problem can hit either source of data and sometimes both. Also, the exact name listed from the house to house canvas can differ from the name provided via employer rolls, so there can sometimes be duplication and/or inconsistency in the city directory data.





In Topic: Problem with 'sort date'

I've been trying to look into this, 'sorting the order of facts' which I was asking you all about, the problem I have is, I don't seem to have a 'sort date' field on my screen  :unsure:


Maybe try (in the Edit Person screen) clicking the square (to full-screen the window) in the upper right-hand corner between the underscore (that minimizes the window) and the X (that closes the window).

In Topic: Color Code is incorrect in Ver 7.6.2

17 December 2019 - 01:48 PM

Any ideas on how to fix this?  2 separate branches are now displaying the same color.... 


My copy of that version displays the two different colors, though there is not as wide an amount of difference as you would like. You'll likely improve the difference by checking the color calibration of the display for your device and attempting adjustment.



In Topic: Rootsmagic crossover 64 bit version

Just thought I'd interject the possible consideration that RootsTech 2020 during Feb. 26 – 29, 2020 in Salt Lake City could well be a release date target.

It's still a couple months off and the event will obviously be attended by RootsMagic, Inc. ◔‿◔
