Re: Short dates and place name for Gedcom export to Family Tree DNA

Hi MIke,

You have identified the problem. I have not been selecting the ANC option.

I used a separate Export directory to keep the test Gedcoms I've been using here separate from my regular Gedcoms.

So very happy now. Sorry for the confusion and thanks very much MIke et al.

Re: Short dates and place name for Gedcom export to Family Tree DNA

I'm trying to view 4 differeny Gedcoms and to be honest I'm struggling. They all look different and to my limited understanding of Gedcom file structure there are a lot of differences. All I can say is there are marked differences. Mike, if I copy the first say 25 lines of 2 files would that help ? ...

Re: Short dates and place name for Gedcom export to Family Tree DNA

Hi Mike, I've been investigating and found the numbers are not random. They are reference numbers that Ancestry assign to identify addresses. I think they refer to addresses used just in my file. They must have millions of address strings for all known addresses. So "St. Machar, Aberdeen" is address...

Re: Short dates and place name for Gedcom export to Family Tree DNA

Mike,

FTDNA have just rolled out a new version of their Family Tree software. They are busy migrating existing trees to the new system. This should, they say, be completed by the end of the month.
I will try the plugin once they complete their update.

Re: Help and Advice page Script Error Code 0

Hi all,

That's a relief. Beginning to think I'd caused it.

So as it doesn't stop the plugin working do we need to worry ???

I had a read through https://love2dev.com/blog/javascript-strict-mode/

Maybe try TypeScript and ESLint for syntax errors.

Re: How do you include DNA results

I think FTDNA still accept 23 and Me tests. What is he hoping to discover ? Where are your roots ?

I suggest everyone joins any obvious surname projects but also a haplogroup and a geographic project. You can join as many projects as you want.

Re: How do you include DNA results

Jane, have you uploaded your Ancestry results to FTDNA ? They do a Free Transfer and then you can join surname, haplogroup and geographic projects. They charge a small amount for use of their functions. It will give you access to their database for reviewing any autosomal matches. If you have access...

Re: How do you include DNA results

what is it you record ? Do you use DYS scores, terminal haplogroups & private variants or reported matches ?

How do you add the details ?
