Linking an individual to an external web site

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to link an individual to an external web site? The scenario is I have a person,  and there is a site which contains lots of information about them, which I would like to link to, and have an easy return to TNG.

There are probably numerous ways to do this.

For my site, I created a "custom event type" in Admin called "Internet".

Then it's just a matter of copying the URL of the site, adding it to Internet (custom event) for the person in your database and save.

Ive just tried that - but it doesnt give me the option to 'click' it to go to the site.  I must be doing something wrong. have I misunderstood ?

Yes - misunderstood - it needs to be within the detail

My bad.

I meant Sources, not Custom Event.

Should work as you've done in "detail" box, yes

Thanks;  Works perfectly as a source,  and is transferrable from my Brothers Keeper software.    It worked by editing the custom event and adding detail within TNG,  but that could be wiped out by a re update from Brothers Keeper.   I need to write down the procedure so I dont forget.  Thanks again

If you need to add another website link (URL) for someone else, just select "Internet" (or whatever you've called it) from the Source drop-down menu.

If you are importing your data, it is best to make changes in the genealogy software you use to maintain your genealogy

Thats my plan - maintain my data in Brothers Keeper, and then transfer it to TNG.  If I update TNG, any subsequent transfers from Brothers Keeper will override it.
