GEPS 015: Repository Research Support
This is a work in progress, I hope to develop the content over the next couple of weeks - rjt
1. Plan a research visit to a Repository
Aunt Martha (AM) is planning a visit to a Repository she wants to produce a report from GRAMPS that tells her all of the Sources that are held in the Repository. She also wants the report to give her a list of all the people in her database that could potentially appear in those sources, without showing those that she already has the source attached to. She would also like the report to include a table with a row for each person and a column for each piece of information that the Source should contain so that she can print it out and fill it in at the Repository.
2. Import Sources for a Repository
AM has discovered a Repository that she knows is a good place to find genealogy sources. She wants to import the information about these sources so that she can start her research. She clicks on the 'Import Repository' button and gets a list of all of the Repositories that are in the online GRAMPS Repository database and imports the Repository that she is interested in. This populates the Sources that are contained in the Repository.
3. Create Research Plan for a Person
AM has a short time to progress her research. She selects a Person that she is interested in and wants GRAMPS to give her a research plan that shows all the Sources that the Person might be found in and the information that they should contain about the Person. It also shows her the Repositories that contain those sources so that she can immediately start to look for the information.
