Kopf
4.1.3 - 11.02.2018
- New: As an alternative to the option "Create 1 REFN Xnn" from record nbr. as the last line to be appended to selected record types, the tag IDNO can be used.
- Modified: Revision of the option "Move tag". If a tag combination occurs several times in a record of the current ged-file, the first and all other occurrences are processed differently. Details in the manual.
4.1.2 - 03.12.2017
- New: Option "Delete tag block" at "Text Options" group 2.3. Allows the deletion of defined level-1 a/o level-2 tags with all sub-tags from a defined record type.
- Modified: Day values with a leading "0" remain unchanged - so far the "0" was deleted.

4.1.1 - 03.09.2017
- New: Option "Remove FAMC/S if FAM record missing" in "Structure Options(2)" group 1.3.
- Modified: Due to the new option the option "Insert missing FAMC/S (>1 person)" moved from group 1.2 to 1.3.

- Modified: Sequence of converting date errors. For this the current groups 3.1 and 3.2 were restuctured to 2.5 and 3.1-3.3. By this the prefix texts and long months texts will be changed 1st (3.1), then the date texts (3.2) and finally the remainding date structures (3.3). By this the effort for the definitions of date text changes will be reduced (3.2).
- Date reading and checking. During reading all DATE text will be converted to upper case, except all text following an opening bracket "(". The DATE checking always will be done after the conversions according grops 1 to 7.
4.0.7 - 16.12.2016
- Corrected: Reading of the gcsd-file for option "Delete multiple identical lines".
- At "Move text" starting with version 4.0.5 for specific definitions endless loops got created, leading to an abortion. Now the original behavior has been created again.
- New: At "Move text", when starting the 1st line of Old_text with a "=" sign, the conversion can an already modified line again modify by a following definition within the same run.
- At group 4.1 by "EVEN xxx > EVEN.TYPE xxx" a text after EVEN can be modified in an adjacent TYPE.
- Deleted: At tab "Structure options (4)" the group 4.2 with the 4 options for modification of "Multiple SOUR ...", as announced earlier. Consequently the groups 4.3 + 4.4 have been changed to 4.2 + 4.3.

At module "Concatenate tags" only texts with at least 3 characters have been transferred. This was changed to 1 character.
- Modified: General program flow. An additional reading cycle added befor the conversion. This is to run actions of the modified group 1.1 (Change line without number and tag) to avoid critical errors during further conversion. By this group 2.1 changed to 1.1 and the 1.1 - 1.3 changed to 1.2 - 1.4. The groups 2.2 - 2.4 changed to 2.1 - 2.3 and groups 2.5 + 2.6 combined to 2.4.
- Modified: Recovery routine for empty records (only 1 head line).

- Modified: Behaviour of "Move Text" if "New_Line" starts with "+1". Now, if the tag following the "+1" is not found, the modifications will be added to the end of the record. All sub-tags will be always included.
3.3.1 - 01.03.2016
- New: During reading of the ged-file multiple consecutive spaces in DATE lines will be replaced by a single space.
- Option "NAME /xx N1/ + 2 SPFX xx" > "NAME /N1/" at "Structure-Options Group 4.1". This will eliminate in the surname part of the NAME tag existing prefix texts (xmp: "von", "de la"), if these are already stored in the sub-tag SPFX. Within an existing "2 SURN" these texts also will be deleted.
- Modified: Tabs "Structure Options 1-5" revised.

- At group 3.1 "Text Options" option "Change DATE Text" now a check for a "pattern" can be done. Example: "Old_Text" = "##. #" and "New_Text" = "." modifies the char sequence "digit digit dot space digit" to "digit digit dot digit". For details see the User Guide.
- Modified: At group 3.2 "Date Structure" the processing of option "Date YY01/02 ...". Now also a date in the format "/1800" will be changed to "BEF 1800" and "1700/" to "AFT 1700".

This will cause a search of the tag (here CHR)within the data record. If found, the conversion will be added after the last sub-tag of the tag. Otherwise a normal conversion will be done. By this option e.g. relations of "1 ASSO @Ixx@" with "2 RELA Godfather" can be moved to "1 CHR" and inserted there ass "2 ASSO @Ixx@" with "3 RELA Godfather". That means, the godparents will be assigned to the event instead of the person.

Sequence of conversion of the current groups 3.1 and 3.2 reversed. Sequence of the text options within group 3.1 changed (Date options will be modified at the latest). All text phrases of the date will be changed to upper case. Because this will be done already during reading the ged-file, it has to be considered during defining the options for text changes.
2.5.3 - 21.03.2010

- New: Tab "Privacy Protection Standard - Special cases" with the options:
-- "Events with AFT <xx years" activates the privacy protection for date values with "AFT", if the value for the event is <xx years from the actual date. The "xx" will be taken from the defined years for birth on tab "PP Standard". If e.g. xx=100 and "AFT 28 APR 1930" this event will be put to protection up to 28 April 2030. Additional sub options available.
-- "Every event with AFT" will set every event with an AFT date to privacy protection, even very early dates like AFT 1600.
-- "Death for missing date of death" will set the event death to privacy protection.
2.1.3 - 01.11.2016

- Beside the standard Gedcom relations between persons other "Parent-Child Relations" described in the ged-file by the tags PEDI, _FREL or _MREL as sub-tag of FAMC resp. CHIL (e.g. foster child, uncertain relation) can be processed. This serves to distinguish between "main parent" (these are the biological parents - only these are used for Ancestors + Descendants) and "secondary parents" (all other categories). At tab "Gedcom Profile" > "Relations" > "Parent-Child Relations" the system default values are listed, which may be expanded as needed, e.g. other language terms.

3.1.2 - 24.01.2016
- Corrected: Listing of the definitions at "Edit Def".
3.1.1 - 15.12.2015

3.1.0 - 05.12.2015
- New: Several programs, e.g. Ages, flags confidential notes by a leading tilde "~" at the beginning of a text. There is no GEDCOM tag. The option "NOTE ~xxx" at tab "Options" group "Suppress by RESN ..." will skip such notes at output.
- Selection of "Maternal / Paternal lines" as ancestors / descendants. As a prerequisite only 1 person may be selected as proband.
- Beside the current groups "Partner", "Parents", "Children" also the "Parents of Partner", "further Partner of Partner", "Partner of Children", "Parents of Partner of Children" and "further Partner of Partner of Children" are selectable.
- Beside the standard Gedcom relations between persons other "Parent-Child Relations" described in the ged-file by the tags PEDI, _FREL or _MREL as sub-tag of FAMC resp. CHIL (e.g. foster child, uncertain relation) can be processed. This serves to distinguish between "main parent" (these are the biological parents - only these are used for Ancestors + Descendants) and "secondary parents" (all other categories). At tab "Gedcom Profile" > "Relations" > "Parent-Child Relations" the system default values are listed, which may be expanded as needed, e.g. other language terms. According to my knowledge only the programs Ages, Brothers Keeper, FTM, Gen_Plus, Legacy, PAF, PHP GedView, TNG, WebTrees/KiwiTrees are using these tags.
- Checking for multiple identical record-Id's and erroneous CHIL <> FAMC references. Differences foung are listed in the log-file. The process will be cancelled.
- Modified: For Parent-Child Relations always the biological parents will be used (see above). So far, in case of multiple FAMC tags the last one was used.
- Complete revision of the selection of persons and related families.
- Corrected: Transfer of NOTE records in _LOC records and other minor fixes.
3.0.2c - 03.11.2015

- Elimination of "Privacy protection individual" information in a reduced ged-file.
- Fatal error in case of FAMily records without any person referenced.
- New: For the persons to be transferred into a reduced ged-file now the data elements can be defined. This allows to transfer only a part of the data of a person or family. For this the programm directly scans the ged-file for additional record types than INDI and FAM, and for level-1 and level-2 tags and for TYPE information of NAME, EVEN and FACT structures. From the data elements found, those to be transferred may be selected. This is especially for those of interest, which would like to exchange with others their information, but only the data of a few tags (e.g. names, births, deaths, marriages, or no NOTEs).
2.2.5 - 03.01.2015

- Option "Transfer FAM with 1 person" allows the transfer of families with only 1 person to the reduced file. Standard is min. 2 persons.
- For persons protected by the privacy protection criterias "Replace given name" or "Given name initials" all sub-tags of NAME, alternative given names and the tag "_RUFNAME" will be deleted without substitution.
- The number of families with 1..20 persons will be written to the log-file.
- Corrected: Partly erroneous data transfer if ASSO/ALIA is selected.
- Index error during selection of the partner of the proband.
- Modified: Behavior during transfer of FAM data to the reduced file. Also for less than 2 parents all FAM data will be transferred.

2.1.1 - 04.11.2012
- New: The number of generations to be selected can be defined separately for ancestors and descendants.
- Modified:
So far only 5 persons could be selected at the proband selection screen for ancestors and descendants. This number now can be defined more flexible at the tab "Options". If this number will be exceeded during the selection process, even then the number may be increased there.
The layout of the main screen slightly modified to better reflect the logic of the data groups.
2.1.0 - 15.09.2012
- New: Option "Tag 1 ALIA" at the Gedcom profile "Relations" to link 2 potential identical persons, where ALIA pounts to a 2nd individual record -> "1 ALIA @xxx@" (xxx = INDI-Id-Nbr.). At selection of persons this relation will be processed like "ASSO". The output will be processed according to the original.

2.0.0 - 29.01.2012
- New: Privacy Protection rules can be defined to be used for the reduction of a ged-file. There is a "Standard Privacy Protection", where all persons are treated in the same way. In addition a "Privacy Protection Individual" is available, where the persons will be processed according individual marks within the ged-file, e.g. if the standard process has been obsoleted by an individual special agreement (in writing). 4 different codes (of sharpness) can be processed. These are:
"1" = No restriction release of all data
"2" = Reduced publication (1st character of the Given Name, the full Surname, the gender an the years value of * ~ + =)
"3" = Anonymous publication ("Anonymous" for Name, the gender and, if applicable, the death sign)
"4" = Suppression of person (will not be selected).
- The "Privacy Protection Individual" is only available, if the Standard Privacy Protection is activated and has priority. For processing by the OFB these codes have to be stored by the ged-file for the concerned persons. As a standard data field no genealogy program is providing this. However, most of the programs provide the capability to create "user defined" fields. These allow the input of such codes. Alternatively an existing field not in use may be mis-used.
- In addition to the INDI record nbr. the names of the person will be added to the log file.
- For occupation a 3rd methode to store the data in the ged-file added.
- At the main screen a grsd-file may be loaded by using the 10 recent used grsd-files as an additional option.
- Modified: Reading the DATE for selection process, in addition to the Gedcom conform attributes, dates in the format ##.##.####, ##.#### (d.m.y resp. m.y) will be accepted. Day and month may also be 1 digit. For years in the format ###x (x may be any character for an unknown end digit) the "x" will be changed to "5" to allow a calculation.
- Starting conditions for the reduction modified. A reduction is possible only, if at least 1 of the options "Select Person", "Select Places" or "Privacy Protection" is selected. In case only "Privacy Protection" is selected, it is not allowed to select "Ancestries" or "Descendants" in addition and all persons of a genealogy will be processed.
- Redesign of the main screen and the tabs.
- Reading of the ged-file optimized.
- The name of the ged-file no longer will be stored in the ini-file but in the grsd-file.
1.2.0a - 16.10.2011
- Corrected: Index error during selection of marriage date.
1.2.0 - 01.07.2011
- New: Some Gedcom files contain for death the data "1 DEAT Y", if date and place are unknown. To consider these cases during "Person selection", they can be found using the data field "Death place", the comparison "=" and the search text "Y". By this feature also such persons will be found with a DATE, PLAC oder SOUR sub-tag of DEAT and therefor they will have the status "died".
- At tab "Options" theoption "Date aligned" searches for the longest name and aligns the dates accordingly.
1.1.2c - 30.03.2011
Corrected error in select persons if no person found.
1.1.2b - 13.11.2010

1.1.1 - 01.04.2010
Due to the new setup of the ged-file exported by FTM2010 (at the beginning of the family records all families with only one parent are located) the logic for reading the FAM data had to be modified.
1.1.0 - 01.03.2010
Search for event/fact-locations corrected and extended to all events/facts which are not standard (birth, christening, death, burial resp. marriage, divorce as well as living location and location of citizenship).
Improvements for the selection and the output of data: in addition to the found persons their parents can be selected and the output of family data and associations data can be switched on/off. If ancestors and/or descendants are selected, the number of generations for output may be specified.
Reconstructed the main screen. Adaptation to Win7.
Additions for "Selection of Persons": A 3rd date field can be selected, to allow a simultaneous selection of all 3 date fields. For persons, never married, the marriage date "0000.00.00" will be applied.
1.0.1 - 10.01.2010
The license owner will be listed at the head of the screen.
Preparation of date values improved: For suspicious data the original value and the used value will be listed at the log-file. Then corrections can be made in the genealogy program accordingly.
