Re: Lookup Missing Census Facts: Determining Factors

Mike

Thanks again for the guidance. All worked OK to safely change 4237 residence events in census years to Census events and the Census Plug in now gives me a much more manageable list of just 120 Missing Census returns to locate

Thanks

Re: Lookup Missing Census Facts: Determining Factors

Mike

Thanks, for the very helpful guidance.

My dates for residence at the moment are all just plain year date of eg 1861 or 1871 etc. Do I need to find a way to convert them into eg 31 March 1861 ( or whatever I can see from Ancestry Sources is the correct day and month?

Lookup Missing Census Facts: Determining Factors

Mike Sorry for another question, on a different topic. I see the Plugin for Missing BMD Records FAQ has a list of the factors which determine if a BMD record is missing. Is a similar list available please for the missing Census Facts Plugin? Do you have any quick hints or pointers to help me resolve...

Re: Unable to load object

Just thought I would offer an update for those following this thread, in case they are having similar issues. I have reported the problem to Calico, who have responded positively. They have reviewed my database and replicated the issues experienced in their offices. An update version 6.2.3 will be f...

Re: Retaining Individual record ID's

Mike Thanks for the heads up, and prognosis. I did as you would expect earlier today work through the Knowledge posts I could find re importing/exporting etcbefore raising a question, and the guidance, which from memory I think included use of one of your plugins. But as much of the discussion seeme...

Re: Unable to load object

Chris Thanks for quick reply. I think I have a solution now as below, but think that it may highlight a need for a tweak to Calico's software or an idea for a Plugin. First thing I did was eliminate any hardware issues as the cause of the large diagrams with media content not loading object images, ...

Re: Small images in Diagrams

I agree entirely with the underlying principles of focusing on building a tree with multiple series of corroborating and cross refernced facts and sources with citations, wherever possible with the media attached to the facts. Am ...

Re: Listing all individuals in a Diagram

I can probably work round this OK just from knowledge of the surnames of the lead family branches. But just wondered if ther...
