non-Ancestris GEDCOM file no longer loads
« on: July 29, 2020, 13:54:43 »
Hello,

I started working with the official version 10.0. I upgraded to the daily version. Now running 11.0.10357.

The GEDCOM file that I am trying to load, originating from HAZA-21, now no longer loads. Ancestris appears to go through the first step (conversion) and then hangs in the second
with a pop-up window with an exclamation mark.

I switched on logging to ALL. The relevant portion is attached.

The GEDCOM file loaded in version 10.

The converted file (with _ancestris) is generated.

Any help would be appreciated.

best regards

Martin

Can you open the converted file from v10 in v11 ?

We have added some control in v11 that could explain the behavior you encountered.

I have added more log information in code, this will be avalaible in tomorrow update.
Perhaps the error will be more explicit.

Meanwhile, you can send me your GEDCOM file at : zurga at ancestris dot org
Or use the file converted by v10 to continue your genealogy.

Hi,

Yes, I can open files converted by 10 in 11.

I'll will download the daily update version tomorrow and will report what the trace says.

I need to pre-process the Haza-21 generated GEDCOM output quite a lot, because it is not the best GEDCOM to start with. I don't have a situation where I can "work" in Ancestris yet.

Let's see what tomorrow's trace brings. I'll send you a GEDCOM file tomorrow if that doesn't shed any light on the cause.

Thanks for the quick response.

regards

Martin

Hi,

Tried with the latest version. The result is a NullPointerException.

I have made a small GEDCOM file and attached it and the log file.

If there is anything I can try out, please let me know.

Thanks

Martin

OK, thank you for this.

Haza-21 creates very strange headers.
The bug is corrected and you will be able to open the file tomorrow with the update.

Meanwhile, you can modify the header lines of the GEDCOM file.
From :
0 HEAD
1 DATE 30 JUL 2020
2 TIME 17:36
1 SOUR Haza-21
2 VERS 3.3.0.577
1 CHAR UTF-8
1 GEDC
1 VERS 5.5.1

Put the values :
0 HEAD
1 DATE 30 JUL 2020
2 TIME 17:36
1 SOUR Haza-21
2 VERS 3.3.0.577
1 CHAR UTF-8
1 GEDC
2 VERS 5.5.1
2 FORM LINEAGE-LINKED


This should let you open the file.

Yes, Haza-21 is a bit peculiar.

Made the cahnges and it now opens the file.

Thanks for the help
