A Bit of History as GEDCOM Approaches Its 30th Year - Blog entry by lkessler - 18 Sep 2014

I was looking for the early GEDCOM specifications prior to GEDCOM 5.3 from 1993, so I thought I’d contact some people I knew who I thought might have some of the early GEDCOM material laying around. One of those I contacted was Bill Harten, sometimes referred to as “the father of GEDCOM”, who I met and ...

Standardizing Sources and Citation Templates - Blog comment by lkessler - 11 Sep 2014

Jan, I'm happy enough to ultimately let FHISO define what a Repository is. The cataloging and indexing of the raw source materials can ultimately be done by the staff a the repositories, the staff of the publishers or crowd-sourced by the users - whatever works best. The key point is that if the method to ...

Saving Web Pages - Blog entry by lkessler - 3 Sep 2014

Here’s a quick tip for genealogists or other online researchers. When you find information of interest on a website, don’t just print it or save a link to the website somewhere. Instead, save the whole webpage complete. Even if you use a note-taking tool such as OneNote or Evernote, you still may find ...

Standardizing Sources and Citation Templates - Blog comment by lkessler - 31 Aug 2014

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 - 28 Aug 2014

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 ...
