Just when I thought I was ready to do the next thing on my list, something important that I forgot about needed to be addressed first. My sections for Notes, Objects, Repositories and Sources were set up nicely, but I neglected to add the entries to the Treeview. Once I did that, I then had to link the Treeview entries so the Everything Report would scroll to the indicated location. The Forward/Back history also needed to be adjusted to work with the new sections. This only took a few days and now seems to function well.

Now on to the next thing on my list which is redoing the Place Index so that it uses the same structure as the Notes, Objects, Repositories and Sources. This will allow it to index the PLAC tag from anywhere in the GEDCOM, rather than just from events in INDI tags as it is now. It will also allow for a Place structure, which can include information (e.g. latitude, longitude, population, etc), events, pictures, and just about anything else associated with the place. And it will allow “subplaces”, which are sort of like citations on sources. Subplaces indicate where within a place that something happened. This would be most useful for example if the place is a cemetery. Then the subplaces could be the individual plot locations. There are not many programs out there today that use a Place structure concept, and those that do tend to make very limited use of it. The Place structure will become very useful when I add editing to Behold in Version 2, and then its full capability can be used.
