Jim, a question for you below ;-)
I am coming over to Gramps after too many fights with Windows programs. I am
not against Windows as such, but nothing except Gramps seems not to make my
father the root person and reshuffle everybody else. I am not a Mormon or a
professional genealogist, just a hobbyist. I found the procedures not
intuitive, but easy to learn.
Two quick questions:
(a) I am using the Mandriva package under KDE. What is the spelling checker
that is referred to as not enabled, on starting up in a terminal?
(b) Setting deceased people as deceased. I used Y on the DEAT tag. Gramps
has moved them all to the DEAT/PLAC tag, so I can't delete the place "Y". Is
it done differently under Gramps? Or do I leave it like that?
