Re: Locked database/ v4.1.2-1 / Windows 7

Best keep it on the list.

Great that you backed it up.

Hoping someone else can jump in and help?

v 4.1.2-1 / Windows 7

I have found the location of the database and I backed everything up elsewhere. One thing I tried is I moved it..., then opened gramps, then closed it, then I edited the source file for the "recent" activity to include it again. That didn
't work, and it's still locked. Is there something I can change that will unlock this? It isn't a true crisis, but it's a couple of hours worth of work at stake. Any help appreciated.

Locked database/ v4.1.2-1 / Windows 7


It seems serious. I am unable to open my database, and it opens a small window saying to use the "force-unlock" option. But this option doesn't come up anywhere. The name of the database no longer appears when I originally open the program. 

Is there some way I can force this unlock? I have looked into using the "run" program that gives a command prompt, but several tries didn't work. Where exactly does gramps save these databases? I haven't seen them anywhere in the subfolders of Gramps under Program Files.

Any help appreciated.

New User with a Question


Greetings from DownUnder as a new user of Gramps.

So far so good learning the ins/outs of the program. I answer 
eludes me despite searchers to seek a solution.

All my printed reports Ancestors, decendants etc are missing 
the "married date" - There is an "m:___________" but as 
already stated this is empty for all married couple.

Obviously I do have them recorded as married and in most 
cases a date.

Am I missing something? I welcome any advice.

Thanks 

Boris

Re: New User Issue

I think auto-fill was disabled in 4.1.2 after Old User complaints.

I noticed that the Title in the Place Dialog, on my system, does not autofill as it did in the video or as the documentation (http://goo.gl/jyzZOL) indicates it should. 

I've tried Googling this issue but haven't had any luck.  I've also looked for config options in the interface, but haven't found anything to turn this on or off. 

Anyone have any Ideas?

Recording research notes

I have a spreadsheet for recording my research notes but this method is 
starting to get unwieldy as I am building up the number of people I am 
researching. Does anyone use Gramps for recording what you find or don't 
find and where you have looked? If so where and how do you record the 
information.

Cheers
Garry

Source/REpository/Citation Questions

Three information types I am struggling to categorize.

1. How do you guys (and gals) organize things you already know? For example, you look at a picture of your aunts and Uncles. You know who they are and where it was and when it was taken. How do you add the Repo/Source/Citation for that?

2. How do you categorize information that is common knowledge? Let's say your Mom used to point out a house she used to live in whenever you drove by it as a child. Or a story about you as a child? She has said it so many times you don't know when was the first time.

3. Emails. Do you just have a Repository called "Emails'? The source is the email, I suppose, and not sure about the citation. 

Thanks

Dave

Printing of GraphView?

Does anyone know of a way to print the GraphView representation on
paper? (apart from screenshot, of course, which is rather limited in
scope)

Cheers

Hello.  I am Craig Anderson.  The pro messer-upper of the Graphical Descendant Tree.  The descendants should be in the same order that they are within Gramps.  So if the person children are ordered by date (within Gramps), they should come out this same way.  There currently is not an option for sorting by anything right now.  The report takes people in order as Gramps has them.

Please check this first.  If they are printing in a different order than how they are ordered within Gramps, please report this back to me. 

I have checked this and as far as I can tell, this is still true.  My code is currently a little broken (lines going wrong directions) as I am working on new features, but...  as I see it for now.

How to record a French name

re: Ferdinand Jacquet de Gerlaise, Seigneur des Hameteaux

Hi guys,

Thanks for taking the time to consider this question & post suggestions.
This is my first use of the Gramps-users forum, & I am quite pleased
with the result.

In particular, the responses from Enno Borgsteede were quite helpful, &
indicate that you did some background research, as well as addressing
the concept.

I have been using Gramps for about 8 years, & have slowly built up some
info.  This particular question came as a by-product of some recent info
given to me by a relative.

Previously all of my information came from researching Australian
archives (where I live), plus some from the UK, but the de Gerlaise
family descendants arrived here via Belgium, Canada & the USA, so a lot
of back-tracking.

Cheers, Garry.
