Trying to retrieve lost family tree

Hi,

I just updated Windows on my computer (Vista to 10), and I extremely stupidly didn't export my family tree before I did so.  All of my old files were copied to a folder on my computer, so they're still accessible.  Is there anyway to retrieve my tree using the Gramps files?

Thanks,
Katie

Gramps Large Print Advice?

Hi, Gramps Community,

I'm wondering if anyone might have advice on how to print an ancestral tree with over 1500 members on it? I've found the Ancestral Tree report but am having trouble making it work even on the largest paper option. Lol. Any advice? I thank you very much. I use Gramps for private reasons and do not genealogy as a living so I'm not familiar with this aspect yet. Thank you!

- Josh

Do You Document Everyone In a Photo?

Hi all,

If you have a group photo with family members, and one of the other 
people is listed as "her friend Mary Stevens" do you create a person 
record for Mary Stevens? I can see a benefit for doing thins in case she 
comes up in the family history someplace else (like a Godmother or 
witness or something else). But I can also see this leading to a bunch 
of unconnected people. Is the name in a note sufficient? How do you 
folks handle it?

Dave

Probably because of a merge of multiple trees and subsequence necessary merging of many Places, I've got quite a few (exact number unknown) which look like this:

    Alternative Name : Louisiana

    Alternative Name : Louisiana

Obviously these two Alternative names serve no purpose except to take up space in reports.

So, is there any way to automatically delete them?

No.  You will have to delete them manually or write a tool.

The Details gramplet let me (relatively!) quickly scan through all 2500 Places, eyeballing for duplicate Alternates.

There was a bug in the place merge that has now been fixed.

I'm still using 4.2.2.

Manually append the ID to each problematic Place.  That's nowhere near 
perfect, but it'll do in a pinch...

That's a good idea.

IIRC, it uses the sequentially first Birth event.

Place problems - feature request

In trying to sort out complex place trees like those in 
central Europe, over a quite a long period I've had to go 
back repeatedly between references and my records. As a 
result, I've ended up with several sets of trees or parts of 
trees that should have been duplicated without my realising 
it - so they ought to be the same; but they're not. The 
'enclosing' or 'enclosed by' gramplets make it quite clear 
that the two trees are incompatible.

But which is the one at fault? It's very difficult to track 
down without knowing which place is which.

Could  the 'enclosing' and 'enclosed by'  gramplets be 
configured to show the Place ID as well as the date?

Two Birth events, and a Note.

How Do You Document Conflicting Birthdays?

I have a person in my tree that has one birthday noted in a written 
history I have and a completely different birthday on her headstone. How 
would you document two birthdays and how would you show which one you 
feel is right?

How Do You Note Future Research Leads?

I ran into this today where I located an Ancestor on Findagrave.com. The 
grave record has links to his spouse (which I need to review), and their 
children. Some of the female children are listed with their married 
names (new families - yay!). The findagrave record tells me who added 
this record (someone I should contact for more information). If I view 
comments made to them on their profile it lists other people inquiring 
about people in my tree (more people to contact).

With all of this new information, my lack of focus kicks in and I start 
giddily clicking on all the new links I want to see. Before I know it, 
I'm way off track. My goal is to try and focus on finding out info on 
this one particular person, but I'm like Alice going down the rabbit hole.

Do you folks have an organized way (Gramps or not) to keep a reminder of 
needing to go back to a particular piece of information at a later time? 
I'd like a way to remind myself that when I am ready ot start 
researching one of the children, I already found some stuff on them.

Thanks!

Dave
