The desire, as I stated, is to limit the search FIRST by location of the data, SECOND by the name or names within that location, THIRD any other criteria entered, i.e. date(s). I have to agree that (and please understand I don't know how the back end of this thing works) it doesn't seem terribly un...

Untangle?

I hadn't heard of Untangle before. I just read up on it, and it seems to have been received pretty well so far.

Each of the installation options look pretty straightforward ... I'd be interested in finding out what the pros/cons of each would be in a typical household environment.

what about non-members who want to collaborate with each other? Enabling collaboration has been the big shortcoming in just about every plan I've considered, which is why I started the thread (you didn't misunderstand). I think AQ is really on the right track with their NetFam and wonder if a simil...

Looking around, I didn't see collaboration in RM, but I did find it in Ancestral Quest . AQ does have great collaboration tools, and I usually recommend it for people who love PAF (If you're reading this Bruce, I'm sorry) because they're so similar. In RM, look in "FamilySearch Central" u...

The operative word is "yet". And that's a pretty important "yet." Eventually, nFS will roll out to nonmembers - I also believe it will be in the next year or so. That's why I'm not suggesting we discuss writing a new program, but rather how we can use the tools available to addr...

The opensource discussion comes up in the genealogy community a lot more often than people think (usually when discussing cross-platform software), but I've never seen it get very far where FamilySearch is concerned. The most widely used piece of software that I'm aware of is GRAMPS ( http://www.gra...

Sharing Family History

Because I think the direction this thread has taken is a good topic for discussion, I've started a new thread (http://tech.lds.org/forum/showthread.php?t=3148) to discuss the problem of sharing Family History data and to look for some possible solutions.

Sharing Family History

Because I've seen it come up in various threads, I thought it might be useful to start a new thread dedicated to sharing Family History data and perhaps it might be a little easier for folks to find the info. My problems: - Many members of my family are nonmembers, but interested in our history. - n...

There's two easy ways to set it up: 1) Run the install as you normally would, just put the installation folder on your USB drive instead of the "program files" directory on your hard drive. 2) Copy the existing FamilySearch folder from your "program files" directory onto your USB...
