Sorry guys ,

All I initially asked for was some advise on how people handle ,

What methods do you use to control multiple entries of the same or similar name

I never mentioned it as a

I have one instance of 7 Johns , same surname , same place of birth , same residence (village) all about 20 years apart and thought someone might know a simple and easy way to identify these records .

Hi Jim , all I know about George is he sells cookware ?

Forget example 2 and 3 for a while and stay on Suffixes.

John Vine Holt 3 . I now find out my gg father is now 1 and I am now JVH 4 .

I have another line , different surname that goes back and I now up to John 7 on this one .

Yes I know they have different birth and death dates IF I know them .

Just looking for ways other users keep this issue traceable / tidy. I played around with making them different colours so not to alter text content but this doesnt work on the web .




I have also found some issues with suffixes , Person List Search field shows as HOLT, John Vine 1 . Family List Search field shows NO suffix until highlighted and in Reports , Charts , Photo Tree no suffix appears. I obviously havent checked ALL reports so dont know if any others are like this.

I think the whole website module is "ripe" for additions and flexible enhancements.

The core program is brilliant and I have purchased additional copies for presents for friends but the website stuff needs to move forward .(Including graphics)

This is obviously why there are SO many 3rd party gedcom to html programs available and most at an additional cost !

Looking forward to V4 or even 3.2.2 with a website "plugin" at cost rolleyes.gif

Yep ,

Photos are an issue .

I have a separate Photo gallery site linked but would much prefer a " pop up " that is sized to suit the graphic with maybe a maxium of 4 and no text comments goes without saying . I also have photos /graphics that arent person specific , maps , newspaper articles etc that have no home yet

The main reason for my site is for family and relatives to view online , as we all know having a wealth of data on the PC is really pointless .

Maybe a Gallery " plugin " for people that need it , me wink.gif
