Re: Witnesses and Where Used Record Links

Whether any new entry has a Citation depends on various factors. If added by using AS then I suspect AS adds a Citation , so perhaps the Godparents & Vicar were added as Associated Individuals on the Other Info tab, when you captured the Baptism document using AS . Alternatively, if the FH Autom...

Re: Witnesses and Where Used Record Links

Remember that the Plugin is showing where the Source record Baptism Ramsgate, Kent is used. So the Baptism Event itself ( INDI.BAPM.SOUR ) is linked to that Source as you have verified. The two Witness (name only) tags ( INDI.BAPM._SHAN[1/2].SOUR ) are linked. The two Witness tags with Godparent Rol...

Re: creating a file for Ancestry with no facts for living individuals

David, that would be better in 14697|Clean Living People plugin question , which I notice you already did on Saturday.

Re: Marriage Witness Info Missing

Re: creating a file for Ancestry with no facts for living individuals

Something in the Merge is not reliably matching the Individual &/or Family records for that example. Cannot explain why it should be inconsistent. Ideally Jane should adopt my Clean Living Persons plugin and integrate its ideas into her Clean Living People plugin. She may want to add options for...

Re: Fact sentence

To add popular facts such as Birth, Baptism, Census, Marriage, Death & Burial are you using Ancestral Sources?
If not, then see that topic in Knowledge Base > Key Features for Newcomers which also takes you through Diagrams and Reports, etc.

Yes, I second that advice. Even if you use a plain text editor, as your earlier comment about CHR & BAPM alluded, it is all too easy to corrupt the Gedcom file if not extremely careful and knowledgeable. BTW: There are Plugins to make that kind of CHR to BAPM fact tag change safely, and other se...

Re: creating a file for Ancestry with no facts for living individuals

You could use File > File Statistics on the Gedcom before you run the Export Gedcom File Plugin.
You can run FH on the Export Gedcom File exported Gedcom with some caveats.
Switch off Auto-Save and do NOT use Save, not even when you Close, then the Gedcom should stay intact.

Whether you need to change either database is your decision ~ FH won't mind what you do. It is simply a matter of whether you want to make the two databases consistently the same, and if so, which of two formats do you want to use into the future for all such BMD Witnesses entered via AS .

Re: creating a file for Ancestry with no facts for living individuals

If all your Living people have the Living Flag initially then add that Flag to the Query Columns.
Then when you sort & select, include the Living Flag Column in the sort & select process so only those Name Sources are deleted.

For counting records use File > Statistics.

Ralph, after installing the Plugin you need to Run it so it can make the necessary changes.

Use Tools > Plugins, select the Fix Date Fields Plugin and click Run button.
