Adding many Dutch Repositories in one go.
« on: November 20, 2022, 14:29:40 »
From the docs I see you can add a repository when you are editing a source.

I would very much like to have a way of adding repositories completely separate from sources.
So I can fill the (yet not existing) list of Dutch repositories.
There seems to be lists in Ancestris for French and English ones, but no Dutch ones.

Maybe I missed this feature in the docs, then please let me know where I can find it.

So far it seems nobody has ever missed this feature.
Or maybe nobody ever wanted to mention it.

Could this be made possible?
And when there is such a list for Dutch repositories, how could we share it for other Dutch Ancestris users to use?

I found lists of Dutch repositories on the internet, but I am not able to type them in, only in a very cumbersome way.

Thanks,
Mother10

Hi,
As I told  you, in one shot, I don't thing it's feasible. Of course, it depends on how your database is written. You told me you have 350 repositories, and  your database is an excel file. So maybe a routine could do the trick.
Then numbering schema, should be : RNL001, RNL002, etc..
R is for repository
NL, international code for Netherlands
xxx, digits to be incremanted
I asked Frederic to split the repositories gedcom file, to create country based repos files.
My two cents. Francois

Hi,

I will give it a go. The page that contained the addresses is no longer excisting, so I have to look the info up one by one.
Maybe use the Wayback machine as I said in the genoom post.

I will let you know when the list is finished.

Hi,
If you need help, give me a list of 30 repos, and I will do it. Once done, you can add them to the ones you're doing, and maybe I can help more doing 30 more, etc.

Thanks, I will ask if needed.
But sofar I have the feeling copy past will do the trick.
Thats because I have to copy address and other info from different webpages, and I have the feeling it is quicker if I do that right into a Gedcom tetxtfile in notepad, then it is first pasting it in an excel and have it out of that as a second step.

I guess it takes more time looking op each repo's info than it takes copy pasting.
(the original page is gone so I have to either use the wayback machine or look each one up separately.)

Let you know how things go.
