Double Match Theorem 1 - Blog entry by lkessler - 10 hrs ago
When I think of something in the middle of the night, I just have to write it down as soon as I get up. My mind’s background processor has been absorbed in figuring out how to get the output from Double Match Triangulator to display the two halves of each Chromosome pair. It’s tricky. Currently, DMT is ...

2017 #RootsTech #InnovatorShowdown Contestants - Blog entry by lkessler - 3 days ago
I’ve been watching with much interest on the RootsTech Devpost site, some of the great programs that are being submitted to the showdown. Although the submitted programs have not yet been announced, I’ve been able to find many of them because of the videos they produced on either YouTube or Vimeo, or ...
My First YouTube Video - Blog comment by lkessler - 4 days ago
I'm having so much fun, James, that I'm not even noticing the effort. I feel like a kid and the candy shop door has just opened for me. 40 hours a week have been freed up giving me the time I'll need to finally implement my ideas and push the limits of what genealogical software can do.
My First YouTube Video - Blog entry by lkessler - 5 days ago
For the 2017 #RootsTech Innovator Showdown, a requirement is that the submitted program must be accompanied by a 60 to 90 second video uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo.

Thanks everyone. Keith: Any chance you'll be at RootsTech this year? Justin: I'm sure you'll be at RootsTech. Can we have another breakfast meeting for developers at the Blue Lemon the morning of the Innovator Summit?
Double Match Triangulator 1.2 - Blog comment by lkessler - 24 Nov 2016
Hey, thanks James. I've been so busy the last couple of days that I missed your comment until just now. (See my blogpost for today - Nov 24 - as to why) But yes, I would love some ideas how best to do it. I'm going to start getting into it. I'll put together an email for you tomorrow and tell you what I ...
60th Birthday AND Retirement! - Blog entry by lkessler - 24 Nov 2016
Today, Nov 24, 2016, I celebrated my 60th birthday. It was so nice to also celebrate it yesterday with my Australian genealogy friends who were wishing me the best when here in Winnipeg it was still the day before. But that was not all it was. This was also my last day of work as I head into ...
Double Match Triangulator 1.2 - Blog entry by lkessler - 21 Nov 2016
I’ve gone through the 1.1.99 version of DMT I created about a month ago, have made some improvements and have now produced the 1.2 release. You can find and download the new version on the DMT page. If you don’t have more than one Chromosome Browser Results (CBR) file from FamilyTreeDNA of your own to ...
Getting DMT to work with GEDmatch segment matches - Blog comment by lkessler - 17 Nov 2016
DMT's primary purpose is to produce a chromosome map, showing double matching segments. So you need to give it two Chromosome Browser Results files - one for the primary person, and one for a match of that person to compare with. If you are asking about just mapping the single matching segments of one ...
