Re: New tool for generating navigable trees

Yes, you are correct, the URL need a little massage that I think is as follows. If the GEDCOM contains: 3 FILE https://trees.ancestry.com/rd?f=image&guid=c4a31e4e-069f-431d-a08a-5fa71d73a233&tid=15707378&pid=1 Then the image exists at: https://www.ancestry.com/family-tree/tree/15707378/media/c4a31e...

Re: New tool for generating navigable trees

I thought the Ancestry URL worked as one would expect providing the original online tree is Public &/or you are signed-in to an Ancestry account that is granted access. So, if it is the user's own tree and they are signed-in, then the URL should work and thumbnails should be feasible. However, it i...

Re: New tool for generating navigable trees

There are three attached GEDCOM files derived from the Family Historian Sample Project but adapted to include most data structures, so that I can test migration to other products, and thus should be ideal for your purposes. I've written and tested the code to import thumbnails, Mike, but the genera...

Re: New tool for generating navigable trees

Those files appear to have "lineage loops" in them, Mike, and they fail to export the content as *.txt files for SVG.EXE.

As far as I can see, there are linked marriages: F7=I17+I24, F33=I24+I13, and F6=I13+I16. However, a child of F6 is I17. Can you check this out?

Re: New tool for generating navigable trees

Thanks Mike. The mechanics of finding the file-references, and the variation in structures, is the easy bit (level numbers don't matter to me as my loader builds a hierarchical object model from the file) -- the harder bit is generating usable thumbnail image references for the SVG/HTML output. FH u...

Re: New tool for generating navigable trees

Thanks for the detailed reply, Mike. If anyone wants to email me an example then I'll work on a prototype

Re: New tool for generating navigable trees

Supporting both the FILE and _FILE tags is not a problem, Mike. However, the fact that there may be multiple media files is a problem. Even eliminating all but "photo" could still yield more than one file-reference, so which do I put in the box. I guess I'm looking for some examples and practical gu...

Re: New tool for generating navigable trees

...actually, one of my missing features is the importing of image-file references to use in the person boxes. The main reason for the omission is that the 5.5 and 5.5.1 GEDCOM structures are different, and some programs (such as FH) use custom tags. The way my code handles images, though, means that...

Re: New tool for generating navigable trees

It's a facebook group rather than a page, Mike. Its name is also "SVG Family-Tree generator" and its location is https://www.facebook.com/groups/1740301252946074/. There is a good range of videos on there (unfortunately with me narrating) that try to take people through the various features. Re: Blo...

Re: New tool for generating navigable trees

The article would still be valid, and it points to the previous, more generic, articles. I don't use my blog much any more so I wouldn't hold your breath for an update. Better to visit the facebook group of the same name.

Re: GEDCOM past and future

Only just come across this thread so I'd like to add an update for the record. FHISO have recently re-established communication with Ancestry and Findmypast -- and in fact with most of their Founding Member organisations -- and will be keeping close ties with them from now on. FHISO have (finally, s...

Re: Tree display html / website

I did think about adding a "layout" button to organise the boxes algorithmically, and most cases would be fairly straightforward, but if trees include in-laws or pedigree-collapse (and I have seen examples done with this utility) then it got a bit messy.

I'll have another think.

Re: Tree display html / website

We might be at cross-purposes here Mike. By "configuration", I mean the layout of the boxes in the tree. Colin is using PHP to import GEDCOM data, but that contains no tree "coordinates". Does the FH plug-in interface give any type of coordinates?

Re: Tree display html / website

Mike, I'm more than happy to help with the generation of the textual 'tree definition file'. When my utility copy-and-pastes families (either in the same same session or across different ones) then I have the same issue as you and Colin. I simply put the parents side-by-side at the paste point, and ...

Re: Tree display html / website

I have to add some comments here, just for the record. While it's true that the SVG Family-Tree Generator was originally designed to produce clean and crisp visualisations to accompany narrative reports, it's since evolved far beyond that. The number of individuals, generations, and families has inc...
