Relationship

13 June 2018 - 12:35 PM

How do most of you show relationship's?

 

In order to have a well sourced individual we need names, dates, places, and relationships.

 

A birth certificate would usually show the relationship but lacking this it sometimes takes multiply source documents to establish the relationship.

 

I have thought about creating a new event/fact for relationship to allow me to enter how I think this person is related to their parents. I have in the past sometimes used the name source to show this relationship by adding conclusions. I have sometimes used the birth event to show the relationship and also placed conclusions in the birth event.

 

None of what I have tried seems to work well but I am leaning toward using a new relationship event/fact and within this place conclusion statements based on why I think the relationship is correct. 

 

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

Is there any report that can be used to show the webtag and its url?

Source

I have several sources that I would like to add two fields to the source detail. Will this cause a problem if I just add them?

 

Thanks

Automate Procedure

26 April 2018 - 07:27 AM

I am running RM7 using Crossover.

 

I am trying to automate this so that when I end RM to copy the .rmgc to my dropbox folder.

 

I have been able to get mac automator to open RM and run it but I can't get it to wait until I close RM before it copies the file.

 

Are any of you doing anything like this and can offer some suggestions? Maybe a script file or something?

 

Thanks

GEDCOM Problem

16 February 2018 - 01:14 PM

I am having a problem with a gedcom file.

 

If I export the complete file 9000+ individuals I get this at the start of the file. This dose not import properly in the receiving program.

 

Ôªø0 HEAD
1 SOUR RootsMagic
2 NAME RootsMagic
2 VERS 7.5.5.0
2 CORP RootsMagic, Inc.
 
If I only export a few of the individuals I get this at the start of the file. This works ok.
 
0 HEAD
1 SOUR RootsMagic
2 NAME RootsMagic
2 VERS 7.5.5.0
2 CORP RootsMagic, Inc.

 

I have run the database tools but still the problem exist. I also tried just fixing the first line so that it was 0 HEAD but that did not fix the problem.

 

Am I doing something wrong or is this a problem?
