Re: Medieval Research and Sy
- I absolutely agree with all comments so far. Accurate information for European royalty is very hit and miss. My connection however is fairly well documented historically. Of course there is a lot of mythology and legend too, especially when one of my research lines included King Arthur and Uther! My medieval work is mostly curiosity since almost everything before 1500 in my family appears to have temple work completed. I just hate loose ends, so I really want to have all work in sync. I have tons of cousins since 1500 that I have been steadily submitting and doing work for. I don't know if the statistics are accurate or not, but our Temple President said that 94% of the earth's population has been born since 1820. If this is so, then it is easy to see why we all tie together within 6 generations (or so they say.) My high school students freak out when I tell them that they will marry a cousin, and that given enough time for research, I will be able to show that everyone in the classroom is related, with very few exceptions.

I think I was able to create your situation, and I didn't see any
problems. It took a while for this record to load, but I was able to
link KN8N-JG7 to my record, then exchange data with the record using AQ.
My guess is that when you saw a "not responding" message (which means
that AQ is waiting on NFS to provide some requested data), that you gave
up rather than let AQ continue to work with NFS. Waiting a little longer
should have allowed NFS to complete the requests made by AQ via the API
and provide you with results you were expecting.

If you look this one up in NFS and ask to see the combined records for just this one ID, the system says that 1195 records were combined. If you click on this particular record, it just sits and spins until you end up with a no response message on AQ. The unfortunate thing about European royalty is that this is more or less a universal problem. I currently have about 516 names that give the same frustrating result. Unfortunately the ID I would like to add is already on the list so hitting the search button and entering the PID didn't do anything. I have the latest version of AQ. Don't know if it matters or not, but my file is PAF. Why? Before I purchased AQ, I was using another 3rd party product (which will remain unnamed) to synchronize PAF to NFS. I liked it because of the abilit
