Unexpected BNF - Blog comment by geneatech - 3 May 2016
That would be awesome if Behold could do complete GEDCOM validation, now that Tim Forsythe has discontinued VGedX. And it will be especially convenient to have it packaged with a GEDCOM reader/writer/reporter.
SQLite for Genealogy Software - Blog comment by geneatech - 25 Apr 2016
Louis, as I said, there are two sides to the debate, but I didn't say I favored one side over the other. I even specifically said "I like the idea of an open database that I can manipulate myself..." Your point that encrypted databases like FTM's can still be opened by anyone with the app is a good one and ...
SQLite for Genealogy Software - Blog comment by geneatech - 24 Apr 2016
Louis, you make a good case for making the databases open. However, clearly the issue is debatable, since there are apps in two camps, one that is open and one that is encrypted. I don't think the argument for encryption is any less compelling than the argument for openness. As a genealogist who loves to play ...
Why are there so many genealogy programs? - Blog comment by geneatech - 30 Jul 2015

Louis, can you give us an update on the status of Behold 1.1 & perhaps update the future development plan?
It’s About Time for Version 1.1 - Blog comment by geneatech - 6 May 2014
Sounds like a great plan! Looking forward to version 1.1. The NSA probably developed the code-signing certificate requirements ;^)
Random Tidbits - Blog comment by geneatech - 19 Oct 2013
Thanks for the update--sounds like you've been busy. Regarding the US federal government partial shutdown, those of you outside the US may not have noticed unless you follow the news or financial markets, but most of us here in America noticed or were directly affected by it. We couldn't go to national parks or ...
Who’s Alive? - At Birth, Marriage, Death - Blog comment by geneatech - 7 Apr 2013
Yes, absolutely, "important people" is a necessary feature. Your use of the obituary as a model is a great idea. Will the user be able to select which categories of important people are included on a report?
