Events manager

From Gramps
Jump to: navigation, search

Gramps provides a good management for our genealogical events. Some people or genealogical societies share some names/events lists or indexes often generated from registries or others sources.

This tutorial tries to describe a part of common features offered by Gramps for seizure and events management. Gramps does not limit the number or the database size. We are free to create as we want.

Just some quick samples of events management. Imagine one registry, as example: civil registry of birth on 1st arrondissement of Paris for year 1860 (INSEE code=75001).

We can create one new database per year or one base per sector, it depends of our plan and needs of id numbering (like french indexes).

Gramps as spreadsheet

Like a spreadsheet, Gramps provides sort, ordering functions for data into columns, also tools and filter rules for search into columns.

Sort by event date

Notes

Transcription of the certificate is possible from Note View or by adding a Note into Editors.

Transcription Write the note

Multiple fields on seizure are useful for specific search. Note preview provides a search into the first sentences of the notes but Gramps also provides some powerful filter rules matching notes according to specific criteria.

You are free to write what you want on Notes, for example, like a preformatted tab:

Date and place of information:
Relations: parents, spouse(s), children
More informations: witnesses, other event references, etc ...

Census and conscription

Census is a particular event shared between people of the same house. It covers a period of life providing an address and useful informations for genealogy (relational links, dates, neighborhood).

Conscription is the event during an individual meets national demand.

Web interface

NarrativeWeb Report

Events list

  1. NarrativeWeb report needs at least one active person on your FamilyTree (in this case, could be the writer!), it generates a web site, does not need a network connexion, you can use it as a simple report on your PC/Mac or from a CD.
  2. It provides an alternative display of our data, with some privacy guards against private publications.
  3. Navigation runs fine between complex links (events, media, notes, sources).
