Enquiring about a Facebook group and if there is a whakapapa programme for recording our research
Kia ora. It has been a while since I have come into this site so my questions may be somewhere on this site. First question...Does this site have a Facebook Group?
Second question. I use Legacy to record all my information but was wondering if there is a similar programme where we can record the Waka, Awa, Iwi, Hapu, Marae etc that is pertinent for us. The other programes that are available do not have a place other than recording it in the notes area
There is a new facebook page - [url=Whakapapa Club] https://www.facebook.com/WhakapapaClub/[/url] that has just been started.
I know what you mean about not being able to record waka etc except in notes. There used to be a Whanau Records here where we could do that, but after the crash that disappeared. Seeing as the site is being recoded maybe that could be revived 😀
I use Geneweb which I like as it will draw the "bramble bush" trees and not just the pedigree charts. So if you have the lines from say 4 children of a captain of a waka down to you it will draw all of those lines, showing where they join. If they join multiple time it will show that as well 🙂
One way I get the waka in is I do I create a "Title" for people. For example Rangatira o NAME OF WAKA then I can look up all of the people for that, or for the Rangatira title. So using the same idea I suppose you could create a title Uri o te Waka NAME OF WAKA or for those who were on board Tangata o te Waka NAME OF WAKA. Not sure if that would work in Legacy though but may give you some ideas of how to work around it 🙂
Nau te raurau,
Naku te raurau,
Ka ora ai nga tangata!
Together we will get there!
