the data come from?
The data in the on-line pedigree search system is taken directly from
the database that the Registrar. uses to run The on-line data is updated
from the master database periodically. The date and time it was last
updated appears at the bottom of each page of the pedigree search system.
What if I notice a mistake in my animal's
If there's a mistake in the data, inform the Registrar by sending and
email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be sure to specify your animal's registration number in your message.
The Registrar will change the master database, and the on-line database
will be corrected the next time it is updated.
How do I get data added to the database?
If you want to add data (for example, missing animals to fill out your
animal's pedigree), send the relevant information to the Registrar.
Information like this requires supporting documentation.
Why do some animals have pictures?
The pedigree search system can display pictures of the animals in the
database, but the pictures do not come from the database. The animal
owner must provide them to the web site administrator, Ray
Delaney, who can add them to the site.
Photos should be emailed to web
administrator, in JPEG, GIF, or BMP format. The size of the image,
if you click on the sample image on the right, it will show you the
appropriate size and shape. The actual size of the image should be 360
pixels wide x 240 pixels High with a Resoulition of 72, you can also
email the picture to the ADCA web department and they will size your
picture for you, this is a Free service to our members.
Each pedigreed animal can
have up to three photos displayed, one main pedigree profile photo which
will be displayed at (360x240), the other two smaller photos which are
optional, are to be used to highlight an animals unique markings or
attributes, such as horned, polled, scrotal, udders etc. if
these photo's are provided, they will be displayed below the main photo
in a smaller frame size (174x116). Please indicate to web
admin, which photo is to be the main one.
Can I sort the search results by something other than the animal
Yes. Each column heading in the search result is actually a link. If
you click on a column heading, the search results will be redisplayed,
sorted by that column. If you are several pages down in a multi-page
result, the display starts over with page one. The
symbol indicates which column the report is currently sorted by.
When I sort by Owner or Breeder, why are the names in alphabetical
order by first name?
The names are in the database in a first-name/last-name arrangement,
and thus that is how they are sorted. When you sort by Owner or Breeder,
all the animals of a particular Owner or Breeder will still appear together,
Why do some animals not show up when I search by Owner?
When searching by owner, the pedigree system only lists those animals
that are still alive. Deceased animals do not show up.
What does the Progeny column mean on the Progeny report?
The Progeny column in each row of the Progeny report shows the number
of Progeny of the animal in that row. If you click on the number, you
will get a Progeny report for that animal.
