Separate Trees Sorta Became One


Genosis

I absolutely LOVE this program! I do not get to fiddle with it as much as I used to due to my work schedule, but I think it is the absolute best one out there!

I have 3 separate trees, and when I clicked on each tree only the featured profiles and pictures from that tree would show up. I have performed all the upgrades as they come through, and each of my trees now has ALL the profiles and pictures from the other trees as well... they are no longer ssperate like they used to be! Is there a way to correct this?

Thanks!! Lisa

Profile ID Numbers


Genosis

Gracious! Not sure why they post ended up twice? I figured once the number is deleted it is unusable. But as to the second part of the question - then why if I upload new people from a gedcom does it takes information from the deleted ID and add it to the new one? I have to add everything manually and can no longer use the gedcom feature because of this. I find people born 48 years ago attached as the spouse of someone born 148 years ago. And the information for the 48 year old and the 148 year is mixed in the timeline. I cannot pinpoint an example as I am cleaning them up as I go along, but I wonder what I am doing wrong that is happening? Thanks!

Profile ID Numbers


Genosis

I figured out I could download all the profiles along with their ID numbers, etc which will help me figure out if I have duplicates or not. Anyway, here is my question: I have a bunch of missing ID numbers. I have no profile ID number 30s, etc. I am assuming it is because I deleted people? Is there a way to utilize those ID numbers again? Thanks! Lisa

Profile ID Numbers


Genosis

Hello! There have been times when I have deleted profiles, but when I upload another gedcom, that profile ID number will be assigned to a new ancestor, but with the deleted ancestors events and family. I have had to do a lot of tidying up ... what am I doing wrong? Thanks! Lisa

Moving Profiles to a Different Tree


Genosis

Hello! There are some profiles I would like to move to another tree. I open up their profile and make sure the check box for ancestors is checked, and then click the tree to move them to. Does their profile still remain on the original tree at all?

I am also finding that some profiles simply refuse to move to another tree. Any suggestions? Thanks! Lisa

Event Image vs Source


Genosis

I am wondering in what instance it is more preferable to add an image to an event as opposed to adding that same image as a source? The same image appears in either instance, and I am not 100% sure why I would add it as a source unless a number of people will be attached to it? Thanks for your thoughts! ~ Lisa

Blog Question


Genosis

Thank you! If you run into someone who uses it, I would be interested in seeing it. My blogs are on WordPress, and those connect to a Facebook group page. I'll probably tinker with it at a later date, I was just wondering if you used it. :-) Thank you! Lisa

Disappearing Events


Genosis

The death event was fine because there was a full date - month, day, year.
The next event I added was "residence," but only the month and year.
I then added funeral with only the month and year - same as residence. But it would not show up on the timeline.
I then went back into the residence event and picked a random day (not death day)to add to it, and the funeral event then showed up.
None of this is a big deal at all. I just wanted to know if this is what you expected to happen so I can adjust what I'm doing. Or if this is not what should happen because the events are different so it shouldn't matter if the date is the same.

Thanks! Lisa

Disappearing Events


Genosis

Hello! I have run into an interesting issue, and I am not sure if I have to change a setting some place. I am adding information from the death certificates.
So, the ancestor died October 30, 1909. I added his death certificate under the event called "death."
I then added the event "residence" and just dated it October 1909 with the physical address in the detail section. This is just until I learn if he lived there longer.
I then added the event "funeral" and since I didn't know the full date I just added October 1909 like I did with residence, and the event "disappears!"

If I add a full date it doesn't do that. I figured since the event names were different it would allow both events to be shown but it doesn't.
Is there something I need to change somewhere or is that just how the program is designed to work?

Thanks for such an amazing program!!

Lisa

Blog Question


Genosis

Hi, Brian! It does help! I have 2 genealogy blogs... pretty much names and dates just to get that information "out there" and I have met cousins that way! Do you do the blog on your family site at all? I would be interested in seeing it live before I change stuff up again. :-) Lisa
