    3. Hi, In my Linux Gramps genealogy program, I can upload gifs or whatever into my sources media page. Can I include gif copies I made of pages from paid census subscriptions in my source uploads or will I get in hot water with the sites I got them from?

First, dealing with a=20 website, most exports or website creation procedures, eliminate photos for= =20 those who are living. (I am unfamiliar with Gramps.) Also, usually your photo files are in a different folder than your other=20 information, so that when you send your gedcom, you will have to send your= =20 photofile as well. I usually like to zip it - or whatever the linux=20 equivalent is. Below, is a convention that I use for naming files - just for your= information. Cheers, Ted Here is the way that photos should be named in order to link. Lomatski, Ted (1) - c1954 This example - (1) is the RIN no. that every person is assigned. When the=20 year is approximated it is written as c1954 meaning circa or around 1954. Lomatski, Ted (1) - Feb 2000 In this example, it is known that it was taken in Feb The month is always 3= =20 letters with no period following Feb - The year is always written in 4= digits Lomatski, Ted (1) - 22 Apr 1978 In this example, the exact date is known, so that it is written this way -= =20 also the way it is shown on the Family Group Record.

    2. Marlaina Barr
    3. Hello All, I am going to add photos of documents and people on my Gramps genealogy program (linux), I can export it as a GEDCOM. I read that when I put it on a website like Ancestry for posterity, the images will not appear. Is this right? If I email the gedcom to someone for safekeeping will the photos appear? Also, I have a page for notes on each person. Same questions for them. I realize that I could put them on my own website, but if I'm not around to pay for the site, it will be gone.

Marlaina, You should ALWAYS give credit where credit is due. Many researchers spend long hours and many years searching for documentation and putting it into their sources as to where they got it. I would never try and take credit for all that hard work from someone else. If you got the info from a web site or even a family member they should have there sources already listed in the GEDCOM file and when you import it into your files then the source credit most times will follow with it.

    3. Thanks so much for the reply. I don't want to take credit, but was not sure it would even be ethical to copy. I thought I might need their permission first. So I can copy and incorporate and use as the source the other persons gedcom ID and URL? If they take it off the internet then there would be no sources on what I have copied. Can I list their gedcom and URL and their sources? Thanks.

    3. Marliana -- Your source will be the GEDCOM or book, website, whatever, for this information. It is not proper to cite someone else's sources as your own, unless you actually check them. You should give full credit to any and everyone who provides you with information, regardless of the format in which you receive it -- GEDCOM, family group sheet, letter, website, etc. While genealogical facts can not be copyrighted, the notes and any additional information that a researcher might have put in them are copyrightable and should NEVER be used without proper citation and full credit given to the author and using *all* of their material probably would be copyright infringement. I would get written permission from the author first before including ANY of their notes in your material or sharing it with others. An excellent book on this subject is: Evidence!

    2. Gail Meyer Kilgore
    3. Beginning Monday, 10 June 2002, RootsWeb will begin the complex and time-consuming process of upgrading our servers to new hardware. o What does this mean for you? Well, it means some servers will be unavailable during this time unavailable and we are asking for your patience. For up-to-date information about the different resources, you can visit http://helpdesk.rootsweb.com/ as the move progresses. o List Administrators: When the time comes to move list servers, we will be halting operation on the machine to complete the move. We expect to have the machines down the least amount of time possible. No mail will be sent from or posted to your mailing lists. We do not expect to lose any messages. o Board Administrators: Nothing, unless your board happens to be gatewayed to a mailing list then the information for list administrators apply. o Web Pages: FTP will be down so that changes can't be made to pages until everything is working correctly on the new servers. There will be a short time that the pages will not be available as the transfer takes place. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we go through a few "growing pains."

    3. RE: IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM ROOTSWEB. Starting today (Monday, 6/10) and extending over several days, RootsWeb is going to be moving the list servers and other machines. No messages sent are expected to be lost, but the lists will be down for a while when it happens. PLEASE don't post "why aren't I getting mail" during that time . . . you will when it comes back up, and you don't want half of it to be everyone on the list asking why aren't they getting mail. If you have trouble reaching other RW servers this week, it's probably for the same reason; try again in an hour or two or three . . . Gail Meÿer Kilgore Casa Grande, AZ

They go back at least 10 generations and are laminated. I discovered that I could write on them with a "permanent" fine tip black marker and yet erase them with the white drafting type erasers. I think I paid 6 dollars for them. The advantages of course are they are all one piece. they are very nicely done with some "decor" on them as well. You may want to check your local historical society and see if they have such a thing for sale. I now have several so I have one for each of the various branches of the family. I did print a paper wall chart for my friend and the size was just out of hand. she said they couldn't find a wall big enough for it. Just my experience. Jo Hogle
