Whoops, sorry, forgot about the way the Status: affects Diagram partnership connecting lines. :oops:

Re: Step Son showing in Descendants

In the All Individuals standard Query, the Relationship to Root column shows the relationship to the File Root person. I assume that your Individual record is the File Root and not your wife's Individual record. If your wife is the File Root then your stepson will be shown in the Query correctly as ...

Re: Importing and TITLE

Hi Glenn,
That imported Divorce event is perfectly OK and is standard GEDCOM.

The FH Status: Divorced is only for when you know they are Divorced but have no Divorce event Date or Place details.
It is a non-standard GEDCOM extension invented by FH so will not be supported by any other products.

Re: Step Son showing in Descendants

By default, FH does not differentiate between blood relatives and step, foster, or adoptive relationships. Anyway, unless you have definitive DNA/blood proof, you cannot be 100% sure that blood relatives really are such. The parent Rel ationship details can identify the relationship to each parent, ...

Re: Importing and TITLE

Yes, if you are always the researcher then it is hardly worth preserving.
In FH it could be recorded in a Source Citation Note, or by using the new Source Templates, metafields could be defined to hold that sort of information.

It sounds as if you are really getting to grips with the RY3 migration. I think you are saying those 120 entries are 2 PLAC without any subsequent placename. Yes, they can be ignored.

Re: Relationship expression for a query

Yes, it is a bit tricky. Function parameters such as that are typically dependent on context. In this case, the Query type is Individual, so any blank parameter that refers to an Individual record will default to %INDI%. However, as you found in the Sentence Template context that does not work. Simi...

Re: Relationship expression for a query

This is related to your recent posting 20881|Relationship expression . The syntax is =Relationship( Record(9999,"I"), %INDI%, TEXT, 1 ) as before but no { curly brackets } and %INDI% not %CUR_PRIN% in this context. Where 9999 is your Record Id number.

Try the =Relationship(...) function or =RelationCode(...) function but I'm not sure how they can be used to identify direct versus indirect relationships.

Re: Relationship expression

Unfortunately the %INDI% data reference does not work in the Sentence Template context and %CUR_PRIN% must be used. Also, the function needs to be enclosed in { curly brackets } . i.e. {=Relationship( Record(9999,"I"), %CUR_PRIN%, TEXT, 1 )} The full Sentence Template would then be: {%CUR_PRIN%} is ...

Re: Simple Citations Templates for Family Historian 7

IMO, you should consider two forms of Simple Citation Template for FH. The current template is very much a Simple Citations Lumper Template because so many details are in the Citation. In FH if there are multiple identical Citations derived from one Source there will be multiple copies of a lot of d...

Re: Help with an expression

OK, what confused me was you said that it "worked to get an icon for anyone that had a note".
So at some stage, you must have entered a valid expression and I thought that was the one with a missing comma.

Re: Help with an expression

I'd be interested to know how you managed to omit that comma.
If I do that and then click OK FH automatically inserts a comma.
I've tried all sorts of edits and either FH corrects the typo or says 'Expression not valid'.
