Places need their own "history"
Bjarne Dein
- Close

Hi

I've used Genbox for a very long time, and quite a few others in fact;-)

This is an interesting tool, but has some missing points by first look:

  • Places need their "history" because people has been attached to places for hundereds of years, "family places" that family have heritaged.
  • Places have been moved (at least here in Denmark), meaning that houses have been torn down, moved and build up again.
  • Places move location.
  • Locations have changed name over time
  • Locations have changed relation to different parish, destrict, county and country over time.
  • How do we relate a person, place or source to it original name of location, and on the same time give it an identity that can be looked up on a map without having a possibility of adding more than one name to the same GPS position.
  • Another interesting thing about places, locations, parish etc. - they had their own arms - how do we add those.
  • Another very interesting aspect is ownership, copyholder, proprietor, steward etc - how do we keep a record relationship to property.

Well - these are some interesting thoughts, that I'd like to share with you, and hope you'll find a solution for.

Many thanks in advance and Merry Christmas.

MyHeritage is not related to Genbox in anyway.

But you feedback is relevant to our product as well, thank you!

Hi Noam,

Sure they are not direct related, but I guess indirect - they are both genealogy programs, and I guess this is what it's all about;-)

I find a lot of interewsting aspects in yours, so I'm concidering moving to yours.

Can you say a bit more about in wich way you found them relevant? And further on - how that migt change your product?

 Best regards,

Bjarne

Hi Bjarne,

 

In Family Tree Builder,

It is possible to add a place to each fact,

And also several notes. You could describe the history of the place in the Fact's note.

 

I find your ideas about tracing the history of places interesting,  

And I will forward them to our Development Team for consideration.

 

I hope you keep posting your comments and suggestions.

 

Regards,

Noam
