Slovenian Sources:


Aleš was born on 24 September 1969 in Ljubljana, Slovenia to Mišo and Jelka.

I got married on July 7 2004 in Santorini, Greece


Aleš was featured in a Meet Our Members Post on the WikiTree Blog!

Interest for genealogy started in 2015. I started with my tree in various programs and websites. Best one that I found was MyHeritage, but my tree quickly expanded beyond free hosting. So I continued my search and found the WikiTree. I registered on 29 Jun 2015 and transferred part of my tree to here,

Then I played with API and noticed, that I often forget to enter gender, locations,... So I wrote the program to search for errors on my tree. After I corrected all my mistakes, I asked myself if others are doing the same mistakes. So in april 2016 I asked for access to the database dump, and I couldn't believe, that others made even more mistakes than I did. So shortly after, I prepared the first error reports and Data Doctors project started.

In July 2016 I was asked to become the Leader and in September that year I also became the WikiTree Team Member. Since then a lot of things were done, mostly documented in G2G.

DNA Tested
Aleš Trtnik's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Aleš or other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA. Y-chromosome DNA test-takers in his direct paternal line on WikiTree:
  • Aleš Trtnik: Family Tree DNA Y-DNA Test 37 markers, haplogroup R-M198, FTDNA kit #MK32808, MitoYDNA ID T12872 [compare]
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Aleš:

Hi hun.

Just a quick message to remind you that tomorrow starts the Clean-a-thon. I am so very happy to be so blessed as to have you joining me for it. See you then.

Like I didn't know that. I will be there to set things up for Clean-a-Thon.
posted by Aleš Trtnik
Hey hun,

Yes I knew you knew. I was sending the message out to team members to say when it started and how glad I am to have everyone with us.

Thank you for being on the team again.

Would it be possible to do a global search and replace for source urls beginning to be changed to beginning as in the profile of Gagnier-79 for example? I'm sure there are 100s of them. If you can I'd be curious how many are changed.

Thank you!

Is there a way that I can get the wikitree+ search to return a list of unconnected BRANCHes starting from the most number of unconnected profiles it contains & descending in size ? (preferably American branches but worldwide if necessary) Thanks

Nevermind Ales, somebody else showed me where to see your report.

The DD Challenge Tracker is stuck and no longer updating ...

Ales, have you see this problem about user IDs not found ...

I contacted the Connectors Project but they had not defined it before. So I tried it and am hoping it will work now.
posted by N Gauthier
I have never defined anything on the calendar and am not in any way administering the Connectors Challange, so I don't know if I have permission to do that. I don't know who's job responsibility that is in charge of doing that.
posted by N Gauthier
The Feb 15 Connectors Challenge has not been posted yet so I can't leave a message there ... and I can't get the Connectors Challenge Tracker webpage to load. Could you please check it & thanks ...

posted by N Gauthier
It is not defined on

Define the event there and it should be working within the hour.
