Documenting my family-history

Having been digging around my family history, I really need to get it documented…
I have been keeping notes in an LibreOffice document, and pondering how to link the tree into, my notes and various media…
and am looking at Gramps 4.1.0 (running on Ubuntu Linux) – as this looks like a possible solution

to build all that into into a web/html solution that I can then stick on a CD for the family (in a portable XAMPP solution)…


My Family history

I have added a page on this –

I will add some posts about family history –

* some as links to use for others to find me on other sites

* some as items about Python and/or GEDCOM.

EG: I have been using simplepyged ( to look at the GEDCOM exported from Family Tree Maker (FTM 2005).
Note that the GEDCOM must be in the “abbreviated” form for simplepyged to recognise it – and FTM’s default is not “abbreviated”.
