    Pedigree Layout

    Hey Yall. On my live site and bothe my test sites, I have an issue with the pedigree layout, The first 2 or 3 generations have no lines connecting the boxes. Does someone have a fix for this?
  2. I have collected numerous GEDCOM files (50-60) from various family members and others. I'm now retired and now want to merge/extract these files into one entity. There are obviously duplicates, some with more information than others. I am trying to decide what methods to use. I've thought of trying a GEDCOM to SQL parser but defining the schema and all of the tables and dependencies seems overwhelming. I've also tried using manual duplicate/view/edit functions in some of the available genealogy apps, but that seems tedious and non-productive. Has anyone faced this same situation? Can TNG do this somehow? If I import all 50-60 files into TNG will I end up with a mess? And how did you go about solving it?
  3. Hello everyone, hope this finds you all doing well. I've been going through my people and families, getting rid of duplicates, etc. Now in my pedigree chart (screenshot attached) some cells want me to add a new family when one already exists. What am I doing wrong here? If a family already exists, why do i need to add a new one in the pedigree chart? is there something i'm missing to fix in the family that should be showing up or what?

    finding duplicates easily

    I've been searching the forums and came close a few times, but no go. Maybe I've missed something...maybe this has been solved in other threads and I'm just not seeing it.... in any case, is there an easy way to find duplicates of people and families? instead of going through one record at a time? is there like a mod that will run a report or something like that? I just need to check and fix/merge before I start migrating to the live site. Thanks a mil everyone!
  7. Hello everyone. Hope this finds you all doing well. ok, I do all my data entry in TNG on my local wampserver. This past week I've been changing names and optimizing for the web, documents, headstones and photos. Now I'm tasked to doing all the data entry for all those files, ie, description, link to person, etc. once I have that part of the project done locally, I'll export a gedcom file (create a backup first...) then import it into the live site. on the live site i already have populated the documents, headstones and photos folders and generated thumbnails. I should be ok with this method? if not,which approach should i take? Thanks everyone.

    The new look of TNG

    In todays market, TNG would need to lift it's game, if it wanted to stay competitive, in the future Family Tree market. The terms Male and Female, now no longer apply, so additions would need to be added to appeal to the L,G,B,T,Q,I mob and the other H,D,O,Z,W,X brigade. Either an updated drop down menu in the get-person creation, or a space to add your own identity, or identity of. Then of course, you have those that don't identify as either Male or Female, they simply acknowledge themselves as being "Non-Binary". They would much rather be identified as a Toaster or a Breville Snack Maker. I'm not sure if @Darren has thought of it, or about it, but first horse out of the gate, normally wins the race. Would certainly put TNG out in front.

    New tng site up and running

    Hello and a happy new year to you all. I've decided to go live at this time (although it was live). It's 90% complete as far as cosmetics, how I wanted to design it and all. Still have a butt-load of data entry to do, but this will work for me and I hope you like it. If you visit, please report anything you see wrong, I'm open for comments and tips. https://www.joneshyman.org Thank you for your time.
  10. I have several family trees on my website. Is it possible to link a name from "family tree A" to a person from "Family tree B"?
  11. Hi everyone, I have several individuals in my family tree who originate from Northern Ireland (Portadown) Anyone any suggestions regarding good online sources for Church records and Civil Registration records? Since Napoleon never set foot in England, Civil Registration most likely started later in comparison to the rest of Europe. If I would plan to go to Northern Ireland (Portadown) what would be the best place to start visiting if I want to look for Church records and Civil Registration records? Kind regards and stay safe, Rob

    Can anyone help Restore my Site?

    Hi folks - My late brother spent a decade or two building a geneology website, and we've lost it (the hosting service deleted it after missed payments). I have his files, tons of backups and a new Domain name, but don't know how to proceed from here. I can pay $$ to someone that's interested in geneology and preserving family histories. -Mark
  13. This is a study of the Culbert surname worldwide, supported by the Guild of One-Name Studies. The home page has been modified to facilitate mobile access.
  14. I have suddenly find out that many of my source links to church records are disappeared. I do not know when it has happnend. I have looked in the citations.bak files back to 2016 but the missing links not found. When I make a birth registration I go to Sources, Edit Action and do the registration of text and the link in Actual Text field. In the early days I made the registration in the Notes field. I think that most of the missing links has been registrated in the Notes field. Is that the problem? I use both http and https links. Is it possible to make a script or something to find the missing links? I have over 10.000 persons. Best Peter Skjoldhoj

    Trouble with thumbnails.

    Hello, I am new to the forum and I have TNG v. 12.2. I am using the mod "Admin Thumbnails" I am using Wamp Version 3.1.9 - 64bit on my laptop. I installed Admin Thumbnails because I was having problems with making thumbnails for many of images. I had originally the setting for max image size for thumbnails at 2000, I have now set it to 10000. The reason I have done this is because I was and still have problems generating thumbnails. All my media is from Ancestry.com, I downloaded the gedcom from the tree I wanted from the most updated Family Tree Maker 2017. I transferred all my media from Family tree maker 2017 to the Wamp>TNG>www>photos folder. Each picture can be viewed on a mouse over with the dead link thumbnail icon on the admin media folder. Some of the thumbnails have showed up aside for maybe 30+ images out of 399. I have used ADMIN Thumbnails mod to try to regenerate the thumbnails repeatedly and nothing has worked. I tick the Regenerate existing thumbnails box and Regenerate thumbnail path names where file does not exist. I have even tried both at the same time. No luck... Any suggestions? Thank You

    Census Plus

    Hi, I am considering using Census Plus to transcribe my census. I have a couple of questions Currently I transcribe the Census into a word Document and then create a event of Census and paste the transcription into the event for example for you. This is what I transcribed SIX CENSUS OF CANADA,1921,District 51 Antigounish,EN Sub Dist,46,Larry's River polling Division,Pg5 Line1 Dwelling,28,Family,29,AVERY,Patrick R,Abode,Larrys River,Municiaplity,Guyborough,Own,8 Rooms,Wood,[HEAD},M,,Married,Age,47,Navitiy,Nova Scotia,Father,Nova Scotia,Mother Nova Scotia,Orgin,Candian,Tribe,French,Can speak English,can Speakl French,religon RCathloc,Can Read and Write,Fisherman,AVERY,Mary,Larrys River,Guysborough,[WIFE},Female,Married,40,NS,NS,NS,Nationality Canadian,Orgin French,Cannot Sp[eak french can speak english,RCathloic,AVERY,Larrys River,Larrys River,Guysborough,[SON],Male,Single,19,NS,NS,Nationality Canada,,RCathloic,Orgin French,Can speak French Can English,Cannot Read or Write,Laborer,Income,200,AVERY,Stephen,Larrys River,Larrys River,Guysborough,NS,NS,NS[SON],Male,17,Canada,French,Can speak French and English,Rcathloic,Can read and Write,Labourer,900,AVERY,Ida,Larrys River,Larrys River,Daughter,8,NS,NS,Canada,French,can speak French can speak english,RCathloic The forms that you Census Plus don't ask many questions It just require the basics. I like to add a bit more detail, I have attached a document that contains the l 35 questions they asked Is it possible to create your own template that you can add additional questions. Currently the generic sheet does not look like the 1921 Census It has the basics It would be cool if you could tweak it like the Census. Also The Library of Canada National Archives also have all their Census online it. I look up the matching Census and get the URL so they can click on the link and view it on line Here is the Link http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/census/1921/Pages/item.aspx?itemid=5459991 Any thought's Suggestions,Comments Thank You for your Help Jim 1921-questions.txt
  19. I need some very basic help. I just joined Ancestry to get access to census data and now that I have some, I am not sure how to enter it into TNG. I am reluctant to ask such simple questions but here it goes... What part gets added as a repository and what part gets added as a source? A related question is how do I make a note that the name shows as Mary Shanahan in some places and shows as Mary Shannon in other records. I am trying to find the birth certificate to confirm which name is correct.

    Couple Marrying Twice

    Hi All, General question regarding a couple that married-divorced-married each other again. How do you handled that in your tree software. I am using family tree builder from My Hertiage and it will not let me do it, states already married to each other. Thanks in advance Dean
  21. Interesting reading... https://thinkprogress.org/ancestry-com-takes-dna-ownership-rights-from-customers-and-their-relatives-dbafeed02b9e/
  22. Not sure this is a new idea, but i am struggling with how to register the country and region in places. I am not sure what is common. One can use the local language country name e.g. Nederland(Netherlands), or the 2 and 3 iso codes like NL and NLD. But it would be nice using the full local country name (Nederland). And having a multi language site, e.g. with German and English, the country should show as Niederlande and Netherlands (in places etc.). Kind Regards, Sandor https://vanseeventer.nl

    WP & TNG Integration

    Ken, $flags['noheader'] = false; $flags['nobody'] = false; $flags['noicons'] = false before the ........tng_header( "History of Acadian Families", $flags ); This worked great, thank you. But not in the WordPress & TNG Integration which is hard to incorporate these two together, it does not work live but works fine in wamp server. Notice the two footers are different also, the wordpress has that footer and genealogy has the original tng footer. Also the media litbox popups in this version, whereas it did not work before this theme update. As the header is concerned that can be coded with whatever we want and will do so if and when it is all error free.
  24. After searching several times need some help to find instructions. Could someone direct me to the instructions to move genealogy in public_html to genealogy folder. Thanks for the help.
