Standardizing Sources and Citation Templates - Blog comment by lkessler - 1 day ago

Enno, Using source types based on generalized media types as you mention is one way to do it that would work. I agree that going to the micro level is way too much and unnecessary. Doing so can be done by those who create the citation templates as a separate step from the creation of the data transfer ...

Enno, Got your countries fixed. The cache was stuck. Took me a while to find where it was hidden, but I did and cleaned it out. Louis

Enno, Thank you for your comments. They explain to me what I am not making clear and what I need to emphasize. And there is something still caching your country wrong. I shall find it. Louis

Enno, Thanks for pointing out the country problem. I'm using ip2nation.com's database and I haven't updated it in a while. I hadn't noticed too many problems before. I'll try to update it when I get a chance. In the meantime, enjoy your stay in Poland. :-) Louis

Standardizing Sources and Citation Templates - Blog comment by lkessler - 3 days ago

Enno, Re #4: An "author" or "auteur" or "автор" all mean the same thing. But like I said for Tony, the standard needs to just use one term that the programmer will best understand. But it does not matter what it is called in the standard. It could be called "XYXXXZZ, as long as the meaning of it and how ...

Standardizing Sources and Citation Templates - Blog comment by lkessler - 3 days ago

Tony, I mostly agree with you. 1. My paper is regarding source references only. When footnotes/endnotes are used for other purposes such as supplementary information, then you are correct that they use a different structure. I would suggest that they can be easily handled by using a note subordinate to a ...

The World’s Oldest GEDCOM File? - Blog comment by lkessler - 21 Aug 2014

You're a bit early. I've got my development version of Behold reading GEDCOM 2.0 right now and will display the data in the file, but Behold is not yet a GEDCOM writer and will not be able to export the data to GEDCOM 5.5.1 yet. That will come. It's not quite as easy as changing tags. The linkages of ...

Running Behold on MAC OS X - Forum post by lkessler in General Discussion - 19 Aug 2014

Mervyn, Thank you for the confirmation that Behold will work under Parallels and Virtual Box on a Mac. I'm not sure if anyone has tested that before. I did know that it ran okay under Wine. Behold has a page at the Wine HQ, and Version 1.0.x has been given a rating of Gold under Wine. Louis

Genealogy Technology – Random Thoughts - Blog comment by lkessler - 19 Aug 2014

Mervyn, Point well taken. But my rant worked. And it only took a day! :-) These distractions (BetterGEDCOM, FHISO, Gaenovium, etc) are causing delays in the short run for Behold. But this work will allow me to have a positive effect on the future of genealogy for all genealogists, even more-so than ...
