The tree of the information
The GEDCOM standard defines an elevated number of labels (tags) for the cataloguing of the events and the details. It is also defined which labels can be connected among them. The number of the possible combinations is very high (virtually infinite). This situation generates some problems in the import of the GEDCOM files and in the successive visualization.
We suppose to import a GEDCOM from a program that allows inserting an image relative to a document, (a sampling executed with the scanner). To the tag of document (SOUR) will be connected the tag of the image (OBJE).
Importing this information with a program, that manages only images of individuals, this part of the information will go lost.
This situation is common, since the programs, normally, do not use all the tags of the standard and, still less, they use all the possible connections among them.
A problem exists linked to the use of the windows with boxes for the insertion and the modification of the information.
These windows would have to become very large and complex for being able to view all the tags and their connections.
Genealogia takes advantage of a not usual solution, considers a tree also the information.
This particular approach concurs to import any structure of the information proposed from the originating program and to modify it to pleasure.
We suppose of having created a new individual, and to have assigned the name.
In the tree of the information, acting with the right button of the mouse on the code of the individual, we can add an event, as an example a sacerdotal ordering. Acting again, with the right button of the mouse on the event, we can refine it with a place and with an image of the same event.
We can also proceed beyond, attributing to the image a reference to the book (source) from which the image has been draft and connecting the source to the archives in which it is conserved.
You can 'carve' the information.
