In Topic: Sharable CD Root person? Media?

19 December 2018 - 08:59 AM

Well I fixed the Root Person issue. I simply neglected to make a new "Root Person" after importing the GEDCOM.

 

Still can't get the media files to be correctly linked to the person or events even though there is a folder "Pictures" that has the media i want to display.

 

maybe the issue is that the media needs to be in a specific folder for the viewer version of RM to work properly.  Hopefully someone understands where the media needs to be stored to work on the "CD".


In Topic: Using App to Edit

I understand the concept of entering data "when at grandma's"  but I find that Genealogical information is significantly more complex than a Tweet.

Names, dates, places, source citations, and notes etc would be a real challenge for many of us that do not live with our phone permanently attached to our thumbs :-)

 

I use the App to allow me to know the who and when information on my ancestors.

If there is a headstone or document with important info I snap a picture. If there is an oral history I can use my voice recorder.

When I get home I can sift through the collected information and enter it as appropriate on my computer using a regular keyboard.
