2 Trees Questions

Recommended Posts

Hi -

I've been using TNG for a bit now, but only for 1 tree, "My Genealogy", fed by my Ancestry tree via FamilyTreeMaker via Gedcom to TNG.  (https://kldewitt.com/genealogy) As a favor to a person I met online recently, I've been building a 2nd tree ("LeDuc/LaDuke") within my site for her family  while we try to figure out where we might intersect.  However, I'm having a few issues when juggling 2 GEDcoms:

1) All the photos and thumbnails go to just 1 bucket, which can cause an issue if Ancestry's tagged 2 photos/censuses,etc with the same name, reference, one from each GEDcom.  I've ended up with a couple media items from my people on her people or vice-versa.  It would sure be nice if there was a way to have separate folders for each trees pics/references, etc.  Am I missing a step/feature?

2) Speaking of photos/thumbnails, is there way to keep them in separate folders?  I have over 15,000 "photos" at this point and growing which means the folder has over 30K items when thumbnails are added in, which makes it hard to look through and also slows the whole thing down.  Ideas?

Thanks for any help I can get.  :)

Kelly,

Setup >> Configuration >> General Settings >> Media > Separate media in tree folders change to yes and convert looks like what you are wanting for #1.  For #2, I use "thumbs/thumb_" in the Thumbnails Prefix section so that it puts the thumbnails in the directory thumbs.
