Hi guys I made a mistake, Daniel Spencer Sr. is the son of Peter, not Matthias, can you please fix tree? Heres Daniel Spencer Seniors profile:

Daniel Spencer, Sr.

8/15/2012 at 5:00 PM

Also he needs to be merged with main daniel spencer.

8/15/2012 at 5:54 PM

Hi, Matthew Gregory Cox -- could you give the links to the specific profiles involved? It's not obvious to me in looking at the tree.

e.g.: *Daniel Spencer*, should be son of *Peter Spencer*, not son of *Mathias Spencer*. Daniel should then be merged with this *Daniel Spencer*

... where each *xxxx* is a hot link.

FYI: you may find it easier to compose such a note by knowing that [[ the-geni-id-number ]] puts in the profile's link (with no spaces between the square brackets). That also prevents any problems with names which may have special characters in them. The "geni-id-number" is that (usually long) number right after the last "/" in the URL of the profile.

For instance, Mathew's ID above in this note was entered as [[ 6000000014764753766 ]] (without the spaces, of course).

8/15/2012 at 7:56 PM

FYI some IDs will have 1234 thru 6789 , you only need to copy the first half of the ID.

I once believed (with a burning faith) that the thru was an indication of merges taking place but i have seen IDs with a "thru" that i have created and never had merges and also many profiles that have been merged do not have the "thru".
Perhaps someone can explain the reason?

The low profile ID's is from the very beginning of Geni which is not merged with newer profiles yet - usually Geni staff, invited beta testers and their family.

Profile index #1 is for example one of the key developers. Mike who frequently help us in the discussions was out on an external lunch when they started up, and got only #54 ;-)

8/16/2012 at 7:00 AM

Aside: re: "Thru" and other things after a "?" or "#" are links for Geni to know what to "return to". That is, looking at profile with URL of .../XXX?thru=YYY means that you are at profile XXX but you got there from profile YYY.

More generally, if the URL contains .../the-name-you-want/NNNN.... it is the "NNNN" value you can enclose in the double square brackets. That's the profile's ID.

8/16/2012 at 7:19 AM

The "through" param on profiles is a clue to the system for how to extend a known relationship path (the profile you came from) to a potentially unknown relationship path. In this way, you could follow profile-to-profile links all the way through the big tree and be able to see that path that got you there, even if it's much too far for the system to calculate it otherwise.

8/16/2012 at 5:22 PM

Wow, if i read you guys right its possible to visit Uncle Bob's profile [[ XXX?thru=YYY ]] from more than one direction and result in different URLs being displayed where XXX will always be constant for Bob but the YYY will change depending on which relative you approached him from?

8/16/2012 at 5:41 PM

Correct. And for sufficiently distant Bobs, that may result in a different relationship path being shown at the top of the profile.

8/16/2012 at 6:06 PM

LOL, are trying to suggest that Bob is not always your uncle?

Your Uncle Bob is also husband to his wife, son to his father, grandson to his grandfather, cousin to others....he is, like many people, related in different ways to different people....

8/17/2012 at 5:30 PM

Yes!!! love it.... lol
