Re: Add GRO Source plugin

David, could you run some testing with as many varied option combinations as possible please. You could use the FH Sample Project that has three suitable GRO Index Source records. Either use Edit > Undo Plugin Updates or reset the FH Sample Project afterwards. Are the tooltip popups helpful and coul...

Re: pictures import into report

So just to be certain, you have set all three Max Pics numbers to a large value such as 9 . Are all the other Pictures tab settings the same as in the earlier screenshot? All the pictures will be in a column down the right-hand side of the pages. How many pages are there in your Report? The Total: p...

Re: Relocating Census Image files

I download all Census images along with BMD Certificates , et al, into the Project Media folder, but organised into subfolders for convenience. I am a 'splitter' so each source Media image & record are directly associated with a Source record on its Media tab. As David says, I'm not concerned with d...

Re: RESN gedcom tag - how to implement in FH?

What are you hoping to achieve Colin?
FH does absolutely nothing with RESN tags except retain them in the GEDCOM file.
They seem to only be associated with managing LDS FamilySearch records.

Re: Media re-input into 'reset' Sample Project of FHv6

Hi Gordon, that is a common misunderstanding, because there are two data items involved. Media record within the GEDCOM file with a link to the file. They are listed in the Records Window along with all the other record types. Media file in the Media sub-folder within the Project structure. When the...

Jan, this is related to the Report > Options that you discovered earlier.

Re: Add GRO Source plugin

I think the attached Add GRO Source plugin version 1.3.1 dated 25 Feb 2020 should work OK. It has several tweaks: The initial dialogue requesting GRO BMD Index Sources has been revised to allow one generic GRO Index Source for all types, or 3 separate sources for GRO Birth, Marriage & Death.

Re: Change Any Fact Tag question

I don't understand your point about " skip a lot of them and then do it manually ". The ones you skip don't get changed, but the ones you accept do change and thus all the Citations & Notes automatically migrate to the Departure fact, which is the whole purpose of the Plugin. If you are only doing t...

Re: RESN gedcom tag - how to implement in FH?

It only applies to FAM ily records in GEDCOM 5.5.1 but not in GEDCOM 5.5 that FH complies with. Sorry Jane, but I cannot see it on FAM ily records in the All tab of FH nor in GEDCOM 5.5 on Page 24 . [ EDIT: I've just notice that in GEDCOM 5.5.1 the RESN tag can also apply to any specific Facts . ]

I guess you are talking about the Sources tab in the Records Window .

You can set RESN (like many lesser used tags) via the All tab. Only applies to Individual records. Right-click on person's name and select Add Miscellaneous > LDS > Add Restriction Notice then Locked or Privacy . I don't think FH does anything with such RESN tags except reproduce them on Export .

So those 100 Emigration facts are associated with at most 100 Individual records. I imagine that most of those Individual records have only one Emigration fact. A few may have multiple Emigration facts. So add those 100 (or fewer) Individual records to a Named List. Run the Plugin and use Record: Pi...
