many different programs that set out to record your family tree and present
it in an attractive format. But how accurate is that tree? If someone were
to check your tree, how certain can you be that there are no glaring
discrepancies lurking in there? If there was such a discrepancy, how much
work would need to be done to rectify the problem?
Precision Genealogical Tools is a product that aims to take
the problems out of sharing data, should you wish to share it. Apart from
using cryptographic techniques to encrypt data before sending - which we
feel is a critical issue that is not sufficiently addressed by other
programs; the program has the ability to identify data that has been
exported elsewhere, modified, and then brought back in.
The program can be used also for family reconstruction
projects, and for one-name studies where collaboration is important. There
is no predefined structure within which Precision Genealogical Tools tries
to constrain your data, and there is no necessity to enter data that relates
to existing data. The program can be used to test Multiple Candidacy
theories you may have, and to reverse and reapply the links if further
research proves a theory to be false - without disturbing the Primary data
that you have collected. Precision Genealogical Tools can also be used to
import GED format files and present your data in a way that is much more
relevant to researchers than is possible with other programs.
To demonstrate the effectiveness of the program in finding
errors, the Royals GED tree is included as a Tutorial within the program.
This GED has been circulating on the web for many years without amendment,
and many sites seem to treat it as being correct. This is a fantastic piece
of research by Denis R Reid, but it was never intended to be treated as
finished by its author, by the look of correspondence embedded in the GED.
