Hi. This seems interesting, but clicking the link only tells me that "An error occurred while processing your invitation. Your invitation to view the family tree cannot be found." Is there a way for you to make your tree public?
You can use this page ( www.ancestry.com/family-tree/pt/uploadfile.aspx ) to upload the file, maybe you need to make an account, but that's free. Sorry for the struggles. The only problem with a file is that you dont see updates, but I can post a new file like once a week
Well, okay. I had look at it. I really like that the relatives go way back to the medieval ages. However, I find the Ancestry-site hard to navigate. The lack of images in combination with me not being familiar with the Dutch names of the characters also really confuses me. I'm sure there are a few relatives in the tree that I haven't heard of before, but there's no way for me to know for certain. For more obscure characters, an Inducks-code to their story of origin would be useful! Because of my lack of understanding, unfortunately I don't have too much more to say.
If you intend to share trees with others, I'd suggest using another site/program in the future, as Ancestry seems to be inaccessible to non-invited people. Family Echo seems to be sort of popular on this forum. I myself simply use Photoshop. I would really like to fully understand your tree, and I'm sure others here agree.
I've been able to see it, and while it is definitely massive, it raised me some question.
I guess it is a mix of official stories and fan theories, right? Taking for example the descendants of Scrooge, I guess that Duke and Fergus "Fergie" are fan creations (like Rhiannon Opal Prudence Zella, but I can see her plausible if you don't want to connect Dickie Duck to Scrooge and Goldie)?
One other things that I noticed (made by a lot of comics-genealogists, not just you) is to connect the costume stories as ancestors of the modern cast. Taking for example the serie Paperina di Rivondosa. In the story (at least in the original version, I've no idea if the translation change this) there are no indication that the characters are real, while is more time hinted (but in the articles, not in the story) that it is the modern cast "playing" the roles (since it started as a parody of Elisa di Rivombrosa, a sit-com). If you want to keep it, no problem, I don't want to oblige you to do anything. I only wanted to point it out because is the second time seeing this connection between Brigitta and her Rivondosa counterpart, and was thinking if maybe was I that was missing something where they confirmed the connection between the two.
Just two correction if you think to keep that section on the tree: Martino, Pasquino and Pinguino aren't "van Ducker Beauville", because Amelia van Ducker Beauville lies when saying that they are her nephews, only to make Daisy depressed. Instead they are "the secret nephews" of Donald, at least according to a list written by Daisy. But since all the other list worked, maybe this is true too.
One other thing that probably isn't right in that tree is giving a descendance to Filo Sgangherati and Brigitta Castori. At the time of the story the are shown having no children and being only fiances, and during the story Filo is sent trapped on the moon, so it would be a little difficult for him to have kids
I hope to not be sounding too harsh, I don't want to destroy your work, it's just that Brigitta ancestry is a theme that I'm researching too, and seeing those errors often repeated make me wondering if is me that is missing some content where they officialize the lookalikes as ancestors, or is just a game of chinese wispers where people bases their tree on other people trees and so perpetuated the mistakes, a plague as much in the real genealogy world as in the comics-world (for how much I love the work of Gilles Maurice, some errors in his trees show how much he had to rely on translations and inducks descriptions, and some of the errors are still carried in ducks-tree today).
I too love makes family trees, and I've definitely made my fair share of trees where the only things necessary to appear was sortly reseamble the character on which the tree was based on, but I'll try to make clear when the tree is based on in-story or official evidence, and when is pure speculation.
So I just wanted to know what was your line of work, the former, the latter, a mix or something completely different?
(Sorry for the wall of text, I've been carried away by my rants )
It is indeed a mix of fanfiction characters and characters from stories. About the Brigitta thing, I saw it on Xanderares Brigitta tree. Later I got the story myself, but not complete because it was published in parts in the Netherlands. I think I will keep them in, but I'm going to change the nephews.
