Would someone be kind enough to point me in the right direction, please?

Problem in viewing my tree

Hi,

I'm french user, sorry for my english language.

I've a problem with the appearance of my tree, it's seems to come with the length of the first name, but the best explanation is a joined screen.

I had no problem with others releases.

Thanks.
Best regards

Re: Merging two genealogies, each in a separate Gramps database.

Easy peasy.

1) Export -- using Gramps XML) -- both trees.
2) Create a new tree.
3) Import both export files into the new tree.
4) Run the "Find Possible Duplicate People" tool and choose whether to merge them.
5) Export the new tree!!  :)

While there's no similar tool (at least in 4.0.x) for Places & Events, you can still sort them and merge adjoining records.

Gramps 4.1.1

I have two genealogies, one containing approximately 400 people, the second more than 4,000. Each genealogy is stored in separate Gramps databases. There is some overlap between the genealogies; the two genealogies share several people (and several families). Is there any way to merge the two genealogies into a single genealogy? If I do merge the genealogies, what will happen to the people (and families) that appear in both databases? Assuming there is some way to merge the files intelligently, if a given name (e.g. John Doe) appears in both files, and is the name used by more than one person in one of the genealogies, how does Gramps know which person to consider the same when merging?

Thank you,
John

Re: missing media under events in ver 4.0.4-1

Philippe,

I reinstalled 3.4.8 then tried:

Tools -> Family Tree Repair -> Check and Repair Data Base

I got no errors from that but the pictures are still missing as before.

Thanks for the suggestion, it was worth a try.

Merging two genealogies, each in a separate Gramps database.

Windows 7 32-bit
Gramps 4.1.1

Re: Accessing files from Python help shell


1) What help files?   The Python docs that are html pages?
2) This is the gramps-users list.  Few programmers here.
3) There are many Python libraries which parse XML.  Google is your friend.
4) You need to learn Python first.  Fortunately, there are a jillion web sites dedicated to teaching that.

Hi Jérôme
 
I guess I expressed this badly.  I am attempting to read and extract data from a Gramps XML file using Python, and being less than a beginner with Python I am using the Python help shell, as well as other tools/books/articles/web-sites/etc, to understand and use Python in this context.  I can set up two terminals side by side and run the Python commands in one and read the help files in the other, but this is clumsy and I can’t search etc in the help files.  It would be more convenient if I was able to copy them to a text or pdf file and read them in an editor.  So this is a Python question rather than a Gramps question but I thought that somebody on the Gramps list, all being Python experts, might be able to help me with this. I should add that it is not an important matter.  It’s just a matter of convenience.

Read gramps database salvanged from crashed computer into a new version of gramps

Windows 7 32-bit,
New gramps program gramps 4.1.1
Prior version of gramps unknown but possibly version 3.something. 
 
I have a gramps database (possibly two families) that was run on computer that crashed. I have been able to salvage the folder containing the database (grampsdb, which contains two additional folders, 50cbbfb4 and 521c02d4, which seem to contain the actual data) and have installed the gramps program on a new computer. How can I get gramps on the new computer to open and read my salvaged database? Both the computer that crashed and the new computer run window 7 32-bit.
Thank you,
John

Accessing files from Python help shell

Greetings

I am struggling to understand XML and I find the Python help shell of 
use in doing so.  However, to access the information means I have to 
open the shell and read the information in the shell. What I would like 
to do is download the files from the shell and then read the files in an 
editor.  Or, if in pdf, in Adobe Reader/whatever. Is there any way I can 
do this?

I am running Gramps and Python on Linux Mint Xfce.

Chris

Gramps - Recording of Electoral Roll Information?

I am finding the Census gramplet useful for recording UK Census data as it list people at a location on a date.  
The UK Census data and the gramplet have been most useful in recording census information within Gramps.   Thanks..
However, many of my ancestors migrated to New Zealand and while regular census's are conducted, actual
detailed census data is not retained / available.   The nearest equivalent is the NZ Electoral Rolls which
give the name, address and occupation of the voter together with the electorate.   I am wondering what the
best way to handle the NZ Electoral Roll data is?   Should this be treated in the same way as UK Census data - it
would seem to be easy to set up and each event could just be listed as a Census Event with a title of say "NZ
Electoral Roll 1905."   (The Census Gramplet could perhaps be set up with headings to record Electorate,
Roll No, Name, Address, Occupation.   Just a thought - However, this seems a lot of work).

An alternative method would be just to create a new Event "Electoral Roll" which and list the Electorate and
Year in the description.   Separate Event details for address/residence and occupation would still need
to be entered as separate events and cited / referenced to the electoral roll as the source of information
(but this may need to be done as in the case for recording Census information, in any case.

I am interested to know if others use / record any Electoral Roll data and how this is might generally be handled.

Regards

Darryl Fallow

missing media under events in ver 4.0.4-1

Hello,

I have found that gramps 4.0.4-1 has a problem showing media objects 
(.jpg files) at:

specific person page -> Events tab -> specific event -> Source Citation 
tab -> specific source -> gallery

The gallery tab is not highlighted and there are no media objects there 
when there should be.

What does work:

specific person page -> Gallery tab

The Gallery Tab is highlighted and there are pictures under it.

The base path,generated by the import looks good, and shows all the .pdf 
files, missing in gramps, are where they should be in the base path tree.

History:

1) I have gramps 3.4.7-3 running on an old computer running Debian 
Wheezy.  I generated an XML .gpkg file there and moved it to a new 
computer.

2) The new computer is running Debian Wheezy and gramps 4.0.4-1 from an 
apt-get install with -t testing. The import of the .gpkg file goes well. 
  However, I run into to missing media problem described above.

I tried uninstalling gramps 4.0.4-1 and installing gramps 3.4.0-1 from 
the sources.list. After that gramps wouldn't do the import any more.  I 
guess one can't go backwards with all the python dependencies.

Because .pdf files show up in the Gallery tab on a specific person page, 
but not on an "events" page, I am wondering if there is a bug in gramps 
4.0.4-1. However, if it is a bug there should have been some discussion 
about it on the Internet.

I appears that if I want to get some work done,  I will need to 
reinstall Debian Wheezy and all the applications to get back to a gramps 
3.4 version.  I don't really want to do that if I don't have to.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

XML is like violence: if it doesn't solve your problem, you're not using 
enough of it.
