WISH-LIST: gender display/sort for '<surname> Genealogy' page

+4 votes
90 views

On the '<surname> Genealogy' page (e.g., STRAEHLE Genealogy), it would be helpful to have a way to divide the results by gender.  Either a sort-able column, or by visual separation into two (or three) blocks.

Why:

1) We know that ancestors often named their female child to honor a male relative, and vice-versa: daughter Christiane honors her Uncle Christian, son Frederick honors his Aunt Frederike.  When I'm looking at the list to find a person of known gender, inclusion of the other gender is simply a confusion.

2) Identifying gender-free profiles would show users which ones need correction (and not wait for the [awesome!] error-report).

The profiles on that page are color-coded: blue shading for male, pink for female, and green for no gender assigned.

Are you not seeing the colors? Note that private profiles have no shading, so you won't see shading on all profiles. .

I see no colors on any profiles, including open ones.  Here's a link to STRAEHLE Genealogy.  Do you see colors on it?

Yes. In the first column, there is a pastel background on most of the profiles. Your profile has no shading, but then Albert and Theodore are blue, Rose is pink, Charles is blue, Clara and Mary are pink, etc.

If you aren't seeing color on pages like that one, there's probably a technical issue related to your browser, display settings, or Javascript, or ???

Small workaround download to a spreadsheet see ImportHTML 

Problem seems that data is not available in special columns..... maybe XML interface would make your day..... or do the same as the Database Error project and used the WikiTree dump
