1. Re: [GENBOX] Export Troubles... [1]
Cheri, Been playing with the export options and found no way to get the Sources to export without the Individuals. As far as the Places go - if you check "Places" you will get all the places including the ones you've added yourself. Go to the Options tab and if you uncheck "Initialize Database" it will not add any of the Places at all. Poked around the Import option and there are two types of data sets, Independent and Dependent... The only way to get the Sources choice to not be grayed out is to inc

Thanks Rich, that worked great. Why should it read correctly on the events tag witness preview and differently in the reports? I thought the whole idea of the preview was that you could see what you would get. Anyway, whatever the reason your answer has solved my immediate problems so thanks once again.

3. Re: [GENBOX] No RIN one now [1]
Hi Phil, Noticed this behavior before and found that if you export to a new database from your current one , all the numbering "cleans up" and you will have the number 1 used. Unfortunately this will cause all your other numbering in sources and such to be renumbered also. Alas, a trade-off.

I've created a witness role sentence for a census In the [DY] census [W~] was recorded living at <[1L],> <[2L],>< [3L]> with [WP] parents [P~]< and [S~]>. which I thought should read, In the 1871 census James was recorded living at 4 Blue Houses, Church Road, Mitcham with his parents William and Martha, and this is what is shown on the Census event if the witness preview is ticked. However, in an Individual narrative or Descendant narrative the sentence reads In the 1871 census James was recorded li
7. Re: [GENBOX] Export Troubles... [1]
Rich - I'm seeing the same thing you are. I'm also getting all of the places even though I checked the options to NOT export them. I'm wondering if not selecting places causes the sources not to be exported was well -- after all the sources will have places in them. Have you tried other combinations of options?

8. Re: [GENBOX] No RIN one now [1]
I suspect the reason that this is happening is that when you create a new database, you get an "empty" Individual Record (which is probably numbered 1). Then when you import, the rest of your data is "appended" to the database and therefore get higher numbers.

Hi all, I swear that I had previously been able to export from my main database to a new one with just the Event Types, Source Types and the Sources themselves. No Individuals, Places or anything else. Now, every time I try it I am not getting any of my Sources into the new database.. Again, I swear I could do this before, any ideas? TIA Rich
10. [GENBOX] How to display"all Pictures" and "witnesses" on decendancy chart [1]
Hi, I purchased GenBox software a couple of years ago. I am using version 3.7.0. I have two issues that I can't figure out. Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction. 1) In the individual record view (the view where you can set up information for each person), I added two pictures for each person, but when I create a decendancy chart, only one pictures per person is displayed. Is there any way I can display two pictures per person on a decendancy chart? 2) For some events (e.g birth) I hav
11. [GENBOX] Capitalization in Source citation abbreviations... [1]
Hi all, I am "fine tuning" a few things to adjust my census citations more toward what you find in Evidence Explained (pg. 240). In the secondary citation I am hard coding "pop. sch." into the template and get "pop. Sch." the "S" being capitalized because of the period after "pop". Looked in the archive and Bill says I could capitalize the "P" in pop and it will be recognized as an abbreviation and will not capitalize the "S". OK, so this would trade one for the other. Any ideas on fixing this? TIA R
12. Re: [GENBOX] Export Troubles... [1]
Rich - Can you simply export one individual (key) and have the sources come over with it? But since the sources containing places (like publishing place, etc.) you may want the places as well.

13. [GENBOX] No RIN one now [1]
Folks, For a little while now, the creation of a new Genbox file using a GEDCOM in put into an empty is no longer using RIN one. That is, every person in the file is now given a Record ID one more than before. I do not think my GEDCOM files differ from before. Am I alone in noticing this?

Hi Linda, Correct me if I'm wrong but, I figure that all you want to do is to change "James's parents" to "his parents"... If so, I think you would just have to change the code to [WP=]. I hope that's what you wanted and that it works!

15. [GENBOX] Question [1]
On the PC that I have the software loaded, I have it set up for two user accounts. One for myself and the other for my wife. I was able to register the software and I have the data base in a shared folder, but when I access the program from my wife's account, it tells me that the trial period is over and wants me to register again. When I try, it tells me I am already registered. How do I deal with this situation, the software is on a single PC.

17. Re: [GENBOX] Top Ten Reviews - Genealogical Software [1]
Hello, I think Genbox is a wonderful program (Place management, Roles,...). I have thought about switching from Brother's Keeper to Genbox, but hesitated because of the lack of updates of the software and the lack of communication (e.g. no reesponse from Bill Flight to questions at the user forums at genbox.com). I have bought RootsMagic recently and will use RootsMagic and Brother's Keeper. For those who use Genbox: I think Tom Pajak's statement is not completely correct. Y

Hi Phil, My database is the same size as your database. While I have several 'potential' same-sex relationships, no one has yet written they have married. However, I do have two married transgendered individuals whose marriages would be 'perceived' as same-sex. (Note: Did you know that Bill added the 'Other' gender designation a decade ago when I asked so I could record those two transgendered individuals?) My four major lineages (two paternal and two maternal lines) arrived in North America in the late 1

Don't know who may still be subscribing to this list. Hopefully Bill is still 'out there' reading comments. Just though it interesting that this online review listing still mentions Genbox. Some of their category checks are wrong, and I have just sent them a lengthy comment identifying those incorrect portions, but Genbox is still mentioned.

22. Re: [GENBOX] Top Ten Reviews - Genealogical Software [1]
Good Day Phil, Legacy? Absolutely not! Not only does Legacy refuse to allow same-sex marriages to be entered, but the software will change such relationships when importing information. There is no way I would use a genealogy software that limits what information I can include, or changes my information when importing. I have suggested incorporating an "Includes same-sex marriages" category in the Top Ten Reviews for a couple of years now and the company finally did. If you check the 2014 listing, you wil
23. Re: [GENBOX] Top Ten Reviews - Genealogical Software [1]
I looked and looked, because I wanted to switch. RootsMagic comes closest to Genbox and does the best job of importing the GEDCOM, especially when it comes to Source Citations. However, I don't find myself using it much as I am very disappointed with the evolution of that category of software in today's market. So I have decided to take a break from that function and focus more on the research and analysis side of the endeavor, using products such as Evidentia, in a fledgling, but exciting new field in gene
