In this post, I want to explore the Statistics and Calendar Converter options. Clicking on the Statistics link in the left-hand column produces this page:
I clicked on the link for The 20 who lived the longest, and it showed this screen:
That's a nice list to have. The next item on the Statistics list under Frequencies is the Surnames - and clicking Surnames produces this screen:
If you click on one of the Surnames (I picked Carringer, which had 186 names in my database), you get a Descendants Chart for the surnames - if there are unconnected persons, then you get more than one tree, as shown below:
This is a pretty nice set of information - you can print off the Descendants Chart if you wish.
Back to the Statistics page, I clicked on the First Names link and received this screen:
This is a list of First Names. For instance, my database has 1,310 John's in it. I chose Isaac, which has 140 names in my database. The screen below shows some of the persons named Isaac in my database - each has birth and death years with the names of their parents.
Lastly, I clicked on the Calendar Converter link in the left-hand column, and received a screen where I could enter a date in either the Gregorian, Julian, French Republican or Hebrew calendars. I entered 11 December 1620 in the Gregorian calendar and clicked on the "=" sign at the right of the line, and the equivalent days were shown in the other calendars, as shown below.
This is a very neat feature - I don't recall seeing something similar on any other family tree web site, especially for the French Republican and Hebrew calendars!
As a Wizard, there are added categories in the Statistics of:
* Last events - 20 latest births
* Last events - 20 latest marriages
* Last events - 20 latest deaths
* The 20 oldest perhaps still alive
* Foundation pyramid - a graph of number of persons alive in each age grouping (male and female) for a given year.
I didn't want to show some of those because they list living people.
In Comments to an earlier post, Jean-Yves suggested I explore some other areas of GeneaNet, so I will!
