ENGLISH / Information about new Ancestris versions.
« on: November 04, 2022, 15:25:40 »
So far I am using Ancestris version 11 (as a new user, coming from the program Aldfaer)

I could use Version 12, but I was searching for information about that new version, before installing it.
Could it be installed NEXT TO my current version?
So I can either use version 11 or use version 12.

So far I could not find anything about what Ancestris is adding to version 12 or what is already added, or anything about what other things are in the pipeline for newer versions.
It seems that there is no place like for instance Github or so, that shows what is done and what is to come.

Is there any place to get that information, or are there plans to have such information online some day?

Thanks so far for a great program!!!!

I finally decided for a new genealogy program, which is going to be Ancestris.
That has much of what I was looking for.
Have to learn a new way of editing, so there might be some questions I will ask in this forum.

I started by imported my Aldfaer gedcom into Ancestris. Which gave me lots of errors en problems because it is not in the Ancestris import-list.
Will it be in the near future?
Aldfaer is a very wellknown program in the Netherlands.
So far I do not see many Ancestris users in my country, so maybe thats why Aldfaer is not in the list yet.

What I noticed so far is that i have to export the Aldfaer gedcom with Non-standard Gedcom tags disabled.

Furthermore it seems Aldfaer has non-standard ways for its date-format. Ancestris gives lots of errors for some of Aldfaers date formats.
Had to correct many of those in Aldfaer itself, to prevent the errors. (Did that in Aldfaer, because I am not yet so familiar with Ancestris)

So my question is:

Will Ancestris have a specific way of importing Aldfaer Gedcoms in the future?

When you have your Gedcom validated, messages you can get are: "Possible twins".

I looked in the docs, but cannot find if Ancestris has a special way of assigning a label "twins" to the children that ARE indeed twins.
Is there such a "label"?

If there is not, then why does ancestris gives that message in the validate report.

Ok thanks, I'll do that.

Thanks for your answer.
But I did not mean they died onboard.
They lived on a ship in stead of in a house in a city.
When they live in a city I can put the city as their home.

But how do you declare a "moving" home, a ship in this case, as their living place.
What I get now are places marked in red, because they dont have the correect mapping degrees.

Dutch: "woonde a/b ms xxx"
Lived onboard the motorship xxx

I have several persons who lived onboard a ship.
But i cannot enter a place for a ship because its moving. There are no fixed coordinates.
So how do I do that.
