ENGLISH / Birth Place
« on: June 23, 2016, 16:29:20 »
My Gedcom was initially created on FTM and the exported to gedcom. Birthplace data that was in place before the export seems to work fine in Ancestris, but birthplace data that I have subsequently entered does not seem to show up in the places I would expect it to show up, such as entity table and reports. The data that I enter does seem to be in the database but is somehow incorrect. How do I figure out what is wrong with the data that I enter? Oddly enough when I try to edit those records that do seem to work right I can't find the data anywhere in the edit pages. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

ENGLISH / Descendant list

I am new to Ancestris and am impressed by what I see so far, but I tried to create a descendant list from my gedcom file and get strange results.

For example

1.1x1.3.6 NA, Michael "Mike" (I066)* 2 Nov 1879 Linn, + 1940 Kansas
1.1x1.3.7 ... (I067)* ... , + ...
1.1x1.3.8 ... (I068)* ... , + ...
1.1x1.3.9 ... (I058)* ... , + ...

The entries just following Mike are only shown as ...  I can see no difference between the records which work correctly and the records which only give ...
This ged file was converted over from another program. Can anybody explain why one record works and others don't? It seems that most don't but sometimes several in a row work. There seems to be no apparent rhyme to what works.
