I feel I belong to the last generation which still knows by memory where
our ancestors graves are located.
In order to help the followers to
occasionally visit our families graves, I started surveying graves with
I am experiencing difficulties to specify in which grave such ancestor
was buried. I could not update the location of the burial. It is
systematically reverted to the prior location.
Should I cancel the burial
event and recreate it with the grave location?
Did any of you met and solve
I never used coordinates up till now, but I just tried adding them, and
found that Gramps does seem to save them properly. That means, that when I open
the same location later, I see the coordinates that I entered. I tried this with
the Windows version and the latest 3.4 development version on Xubuntu.
There is a scenario that can easily go wrong however, and that one occurs
when you have several family members buried in different graves on the same
grave yard. Now, when you have one location entry in Gramps for that grave yard,
every time you enter coordinates for a grave on that yard, you actually change
the coordinates of the grave yard itself. So, when you enter coordinates for two
graves on that same yard, in sequence, you will find that when you check the
position of the first grave, you see the coordinates that you entered for the
second one, which makes you think that it is somehow reverted. And the answer
then is, that it was reverted, by yourself!
As far as I know, Gramps can only store coordinates in the location table,
so you have to make sure that each grave gets its own entry in that table. That
means that you are sort of forced to use location names that include a
grave number, or grave name, so that you can keep those entries separate.
I hope that I guessed right, and that this solves your problem. If it does
not, please tell us exactly what you did, so we can reproduce the problem.
