Exciting times for any genealogist are defined as what I’m about to be going through very soon. On one of the 9 ancestral lines I’ve descended from, this one tracing back to Romania, I soon may be working with a researcher in Romania to “get the goods” for me. Early indications look like there may be a lot of info available.
Not only that, over the last 5 years, I’ve been in contact with 3rd cousins I’ve never met who are in other branches of the same line. They have added their own research to what I have, and what we’ve all accumulated together now makes it possible for the next step. They surely will be joining this journey to enjoy finding out more about our common ancestral origins.
If only I had Behold version 2 ready so I can record all this as it comes. But since I don’t, I’m going to do the next best thing. I’m going to create a webpage of our family in Romania that will look’s just like Behold’s HTML output. This page will serve as our group’s master data sheet. But it will also serve as a model for Behold. It will also include pictures with descriptions that will be a prototype for pictures in Behold.
Here’s the nice thing. Once Behold Version 2 is ready, that data won’t be lost. I’ll be able to enter almost all of it into Behold simply by copying and pasting from the webpage. Then it should just be a matter of linking spouses together and assigning them their children.
If I can make the process that simple, then editing in Behold will be amazing!
