How does this work?
Your web browser usually displays information retrieved from the Internet.
However it can also read information from your disk and show it in the same way.
The files you downloaded from Family Echo are used by your browser to display your family. These files must be kept together
for your family to display correctly.
Note: Internet Explorer might display a security warning after you click
from your hard disk, instead of from the Internet.
To fix the problem, simply click the message at the top of the window
to allow blocked content.
How can I add this family to my website?
- Create a directory for the family on your web server.
For example, you could call it familytree.
- Upload all your family files to this directory.
There should be 25 files in total, including this one.
If you are uploading by FTP, ensure you transfer the files in binary mode.
- You're done! For example, if your site's domain
is www.my-family-website.org and you uploaded to the familytree directory,
the family can be viewed at: http://www.my-family-website.org/familytree/
Where is my actual family data?
The main data for your family is stored in Family Echo's
format inside the file "index.htm".
You can view the data by opening "index.htm" in NotePad or another text editor, and scrolling down.
Photos are stored as individual JPEG files within the folder.
What about long term archiving?
Keep all the files you downloaded together in a folder.
For backup, burn this folder to a CD, email it to other people, or place it on a server.
The files are in HTML format, which should be readable by computers for a long time to come.
