I am looking for a software to create a family tree going back to 1600s. I cam across Gramps and think this would be a good place to create my data. However, my end goal is to have the family tree online on a website where others can additions/changes (still family, but could be x cousins removed). I have a few questions regarding Gramps:
Is it possible to have names in multiple languages? For example, if a person’s original name it in a different language (Arabic script), I would like to add them in both Arabic and Latin Scripts. This could also mean they have two different first and last names.
If there a way to see all of the person entries on a single chart or can I create a custom chart that will show all of the people (showing both latin and arabic names)? There could be families that are not related to other families (unknown relationships from some great grande parents).
Is there an easy way to export the charts (like the one I mentioned above) to a website?
Is there a way to group families with some code rather than by last name? For example, in some families, boys will take their father’s last name while in the same family girls may take their father’s first name as their last name. Same can be true for the last name. Some women may take their husband’s last name as their last name while others may take husband’s first name as their last name. This will could put them in different families.
Sorry about the long msg. I have a long journey ahead in the project so want to start properly.
Thank you in advance for any help.
