Network of family trees
Members in family tree are connected together with red lines. A red line presents an atherosclerosis. People who are connected with
red lines are descendants. Spouses are not connected with red line, but a heart, i.e. they are not descendants. They come from other families.
However, they marry members of family tree to be ancestors of new descendants under their red hearts.
A spouse comes from other family so she/he is a connector to connect two family trees together.
"Jirusya" was born in family ID 26. Her personal ID is 3.
Jirusya married Songklod. She becomes a daughter-in-law in family ID 31. She gets personal ID 4 in her husband's
Personal IDs in every family tree are running 1, 2, 3, ... So there are personal ID 1, 2, 3, .... in every family.
When you refer persons in different families you have to use both
family ID and personal ID in order to make them unique.
A person who is in two family trees is a connector of those two family trees
Send a request for family tree connection.
Personal ID 3 in family ID 26 and personal ID 4 in family ID 31 are the same person.
So "Jirusya" is a connector to connect family ID 26 and family ID 31 together.
Two steps to connect two family trees :-
Step 1 : Admin of the first family sends request to admin of the second family or vice versa.
Step 2 : Admin of the second family accepts request of admin of the first family or vice versa.
Admin of family ID 26 and admin of family ID 31 have to communicate each other to know family ID and make decision who is a requester and who is an acceptor.
The admin of family ID 26 send a request to the admin of family ID 31 using "Jirusya" as a connector.
So the request is sent from "Jirusya". Click of "Jirusya" and specify that this request is sent to family ID 31
After the request is sent.|
Connection icon of "Jirusya" becomes . This icon informs that it is waiting for acceptance.
If admin of family ID 31 accepts the request, the connection icon becomes
If admin of family ID 31 rejects the request, the connection icon becomes
Accept the request
When admin of family ID 31 login to his/her family tree, request from family ID 26 is shown and wait for acceptance or rejection. |
Admin of family ID 31 looks at picture and information of connector
If admin does not know the connector, he/she rejects the request because this request is sent to wrong family ID.
If admin knows the connector, he/she accepts the request. Admin has to enter personal ID of connector
in family ID 31 to accept the request.
"Jirusya" gets personal ID 4 in family ID 31. So admin fills in personal ID 4 into the request form.
After the request is accepted. |
The connection icons of "Jirusya" in both family trees become
i.e. members of two family trees can click to enter each other.
Types of users
There are 3 types of users which get different authorization :-
|1) ||Admin enters family tree via login with admin password. He/She gets ||
|2) ||Member enters family tree via login with member password. He/She gets ||
|3) ||Visitor enters family tree via click . He/She gets ||
When an admin or a member click to enter other family tree, he/she becomes a visitor.
Although he/she click back to his/her family tree, he/she is still a visitor.
He/She has to logout and login again to be an admin or a member.
Family trees network
Several family trees are connected together to be a network of family trees. Every member can click to enter every tree
in the network. This feature helps all of them in different family trees know one another.
To take care a big family tree is complex. An admin do not have enought life to take care people in various generations. It is better to split a big family tree into several family trees. Each
family tree is in medium size and has its own admin. Then connect them together to be a network of family trees. When an admin pass away, another admin in next generation builds
his/her family tree and connect it to his/her ancestor's family tree. Family trees network is extended indefinitely.
Sample of family trees network
This family tree is too big. An admin do not have enough life to manage it. It should be splited into a main family tree and 4 sub family trees. The main family tree is composed of
great grandfather, great grandmother, 3 sons and a daughter. The 4 sub family trees are family trees of 3 sons and a daughter.
There are 5 admins to take care 5 family trees. Then connect these 5 family trees together to get a family trees network.
The connectors are 3 sons and a daughter of the great grandfather.
Email to login to great grandfather family tree is email@example.com member password is star.
Email to login to the 1st sub family tree is firstname.lastname@example.org member password is star.
Email to login to the 2nd sub family tree is email@example.com member password is star.
Email to login to the 3rd sub family tree is firstname.lastname@example.org member password is star.
Email to login to the 4th sub family tree is email@example.com member password is star.
Moreover, the first sub family tree has another connection to the family tree of a daughter-in-law named "Jirusya".
Email to login to the family tree of daughter-in-law is firstname.lastname@example.org member password is star.
All members in these 6 family trees can view profile and diary of every member in every family tree. Everyone logins to his/her family tree then click
to enter other family trees.
The height of family tree
The height of family tree is limited to 4 levels. It supports people in 4 generations. The last level (the lowest level)
does not have and so it cannot be extended.
People in the fourth generation (4th level) have to register as admins to build their own family trees and connect them to their ancestors' family trees.
