Objectives and general guidelines of the project

Ambition:

"MAKING ANCESTRIS THE SOFTWARE REFERENCE FOR THE QUALITY OF DATAS AND THEIR LOSSLESS TRANSFER BETWEEN GENEALOGISTS"

Objectives which show and materialize this goal:

(to be validated after the satisfaction survey)

  • A gedcom file produced by Ancestris is 100% compatible with the standard
  • 100% of the Ancestris data file are in the gedcom
  • Ancestris can store in any genealogical data (social, scientific, etc.)
  • With ancestris, the data in a gedcom file are clean (syntactically) and consistent with each other (semantically)
  • Ancestris can help genealogists to catch up with the standard gedcom file that does not come from Ancestris
  • Ancestris has the basic functionality of genealogy softwares (no glaring lack)
  • The french genealogy celebrities recognize Ancestris
  • The best genealogy sites are referencing Ancestris Genealogy
  • Over 500 genealogists use Ancestris in France by the end of 2010

Areas of work

(to be validated after the satisfaction survey)

  • Knowing what our users and nonusers think of these objectives
  • Ensuring that Ancestris have useful tools to make the gedcom information of quality (clean, consistent and normalized)
    • detecting automatically, searching manually (search module), correcting
  • Ensuring that Ancestris have tools to recover gedcom, also losslessly
    • imports from the famous softwares and competitors (heredis geneatique, gramps, geneanet, etc.)
    • imports directly proprietary formats or gedcoms produced by many of these software
    • duplicates / assisted files merge
  • Allowing users to know how the files produced from Ancestris Gedcom are likely to be imported by software competitors with the least possible loss
    • document the "failures" of other softwares
  • Capturing many users for whom this benefit (quality and transfer without loss) is important: sites and celebrities
    • construct an argument: "the great benefits that only Ancestris can bring you"
    • Professionals:
      • identify them, select them, approach them, convince them
    • fans:
      • reference sites to identify
