I’ve started looking at the family tree. It all started when Dad was contacted by one of the heir hunter companies. Through that contact he got a copy of the family tree, so using that as a base, I started trying to fill in some of the blanks, and adding in some of the missing people… like me and Dave.
GRAMPS is an open source genealogical application which I have been using to store my relatives. I managed to set up Ubuntu one integration so that the gramps database synchronized between the netbook and the laptop. If I make a change on the netbook it appears on the laptop, which allows me to update the tree from almost anywhere. I plan to also allow the tree to be shared between myself and Dave, and i’ll document the process after the network here in the bunker is fixed… we’re currently running on a slow link, but the engineer is booked in for Saturday.
