There are many dedicated genealogy software out there. I have tried more than 15 of them. Unfortunately, none of them work for my purpose as they always assume Western naming convention.
In the two areas I am interested in, Scandinavia (Iceland, old Norway) and East Africa (Ethiopia), sure-names are not used.
In Norway, names go like this:
Given name, Father’s name, the name of the land (farm)
In Ethiopia, names go like this:
Given name, Father’s name, Grand father’s name.
After many attempts with a lot of great and interesting genealogy software with no success, I am now thinking to use Tinderbox for this purpose.
I was thinking if anyone has an experience of this kind of practice.
