What RootsTech was Like for an Innovator Showdown Finalist - Blog comment by acproctor - 19 Feb 2017
Great to finally meet you Louis. We had lots still to talk about but I was called back a day early so apologies for that. I'd like to make it a "hat trick" and come in 2018, too, but they're moving the dates so it will then clash with my European skiing. Oh, decisions, decisions ... !

Ordering Events by Date - Blog comment by acproctor - 8 Aug 2012
I know this thread is a little old now but ordering Events by date alone is not the only option. STEMMA supports optional constraints between Events that force a given order, even when the dates themselves are so vague or suspect that they do not imply that same ordering, e.g. forcing a baptism to be ordered ...
