Keith: Yes, in groupings similar to those shown above (children, grandchildren, nieces/nephews, etc.) That will be in the Report Options of the Organize Pages. Louis
Who’s Alive? - At Birth, Marriage, Death - Blog entry by lkessler - 6 Apr 2013
As I was adding Life Events to Behold, some of the “events” included the names of parents and older siblings who were alive when the person was born. I was trying to force them into the Life Event structure I had created, but they weren’t really an event in the person’s life. I determined then, that ...
Behold Version 126.96.36.199 - Blog entry by lkessler - 1 Apr 2013
Well I snuck a new version in, and no, it’s not an April fools joke. It includes one small fix for a particular type of date that rarely occurs but two people have now encountered it. It’s bad because it causes Behold to be unable to read the GEDCOM file and gives an Access Violation and crashes. The type ...
Multiple Events and Unions in GEDCOM - Blog comment by lkessler - 26 Mar 2013
Dave: Thanks for checking the latest version of RM for me. But I really wouldn't expect that programs would make changes to handle a GEDCOM ambiguity, so however they handle it, that reaction would probably stay embedded into the program until there was an important reason to address it. Here's a hint: ...
Multiple Events and Unions in GEDCOM - Blog entry by lkessler - 24 Mar 2013
I have to make a decision on how to implement some aspects of the Life Events that are going into Behold. I’ve run upon a couple of places where GEDCOM isn’t clear. I thought I’d document them here for the benefit of other developers and for future consideration in any future standard. The lines in GEDCOM ...
Thoughts on RootsTech 2013 - Blog entry by lkessler - 22 Mar 2013
Although I’m not at #RootsTech this year, I’ve been very interested in seeing what has been happening there since last year. Last year when I was there, I blogged every day on the goings on. For those who can’t be there, the live streaming that takes place from Room 1, the big room where the Keynotes ...
Technology Should Help You and Not Make You Miserable - Blog comment by lkessler - 10 Mar 2013
Alona: Lots of pics. I'll gather all the conference ones I took and send them to you.
Technology Should Help You and Not Make You Miserable - Blog entry by lkessler - 9 Mar 2013
One of my talks on the Unlock Your Past genealogy cruise was on choosing Genealogy Software. A point I made was that genealogy software should help you, and not be a burden on you. If you are not particularly good at computers, or even if you are and the particular program you are using is just frustrating you ...
My Torn Achilles Tendon After Nine Weeks - Blog comment by lkessler - 25 Feb 2013
Andy, That video is sort of cool. Follow your rehab instructions well. They know what their doing to get you back to full strenght again. I'm fully recovered with my achilles being 99.9% and just a bit of muscle redistribution in my calf. Louis
Source Driven Genealogy and Data - Forum post by lkessler in Feature Suggestions - 24 Feb 2013
Theresa, Thank you for excellent ideas. Your points are worthy of more than an answer here at the forum, so I've made a blog post with my reaction to your one-place requirements. In the meantime, I do know of one program that is used by one-name study people that may be something closer to what you need. It's ...
