Where does 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 IMZA. 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 data?If there's a mistake in the data, inform the Registrar by e-mail. Be sure to specify your animal's IMZA 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.
Why do some animals have pictures?The pedigree search system can display pictures of the animals in the database. One official photo comes from the database, and you, the animal owner, can upload two additional pictures to the system. If the official photo for one of your animals is missing, please contact the Registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How can I get my animal's pictures on here?To upload pictures, click on the Upload Photos link which appears at the bottom of all the pedigree search system pages.
How do I upload more than one picture for my animal?There can be up to three photos for each animal. The official photo from the database is displayed large, and two others that you can upload are displayed smaller beneath the first one. Once you are on the Photo Upload page, use the "Photo" field to select which photo position (Lower Left or Lower Right) you are uploading.
Why do only some of my animals' names appear when I log on to upload photos?If only some of your animals appear when you log on, it is most likely because you have more than one Member ID. For example, you may have some animals registered under your name, and some under both yours and your spouse's name. So if you can't find one of your animals under one of your Member IDs, try the other Member IDs. If you still can't find all your animals, please contact the Registrar at email@example.com.
Can I sort the search results by something other than the animal name?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.
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.
