More on SVG Family Trees

Following my previous post on 'Interactive Trees in Blogs Using SVG' (http://parallax-viewpoint.blogspot.com/2017/05/interactive-trees-in-blogs-using-svg.html), a number of people have signed-up to try the free utility for designing and generating their SVG trees.

These people have explored the possibilities and made valuable suggestions, including some with developer experience, and including one person running it under the WINE compatibility layer on a Mac (it was designed to run under Windows).

This post announces the release of v4.0.0.

Good job, +Bill Barrett -- both the article and the SVG trees. V3.0 of the utility will be a fully-fledged product and should make it much easier for you.

Northamptonshire Archives and Heritage Services have announced that, from 21 August, they will charge £31.50 per hour to visit the Archives Service on Tuesday-Thursday afternoons, and on Mondays to Fridays. This raises some questions about documents in public ownership that they have a duty to make available.

More on Margaret Hallam, née Astling

Back in Impediment to Marriage, I made a case for Thomas Meads, of Epperstone, Nottingham, having never married Margaret Hallam because (a) she was born Margaret Astling and was already married to Thomas Hallam, and (b) that Thomas Hallam was a prisoner of war in Napoleonic France, so absent but not deceased. I now want to follow-up on some the suggested further research, and show how this became an exercise in correlation and visualisation.

Searching by Blogger Labels

If you use Blogger and you employ labels to categorise your posts according to their content, then here's a useful tip for enumerating the articles in one or more of those categories:

To find all the articles matching a given single label -- say 'History' -- then you can append that label (in conjunction with the options /search/label) to your blog URL. For instance:

http://parallax-viewpoint.blogspot.com/search/label/History

If your label contains spaces -- say 'Local History' -- then replace each space with %20. For instance:

http://parallax-viewpoint.blogspot.com/search/label/Local%20History

Now if you want to find all the articles that have a given label combination -- say 'Narrative' and 'Research' -- then you need slightly different options on your blog URL. For instance:

http://parallax-viewpoint.blogspot.com/search?q=label:Narrative+label:Research

If you normally use labels to tag surnames and/or place names, then these options would allow you to create a single URL to send to someone in order to show them relevant articles.
