Re: Get Year from event when contains BEF, AFT etc

Dave, the fact is that Date values are potentially a complex data structure and need careful handling. Qualifiers like :YEAR only work for simple Date formats. See the Help for General Topics > Date Formats that illustrates how qualifiers behave. In the case of Before and After , etc, check the Date...

Re: Should I Eliminate Most Witness Facts?

Yes, that makes sense.
If you have a lot of those 'superfluous' Fact Witnesses, then they can be bulk deleted via a suitable custom Query.
We can advise how to build such a Query.

Re: Fact Set file structure

Apart from noticing the numbers, I have ignored them. The Extended Set has probably not been updated since it was introduced many years ago in FH V6, whereas new facts have been added to the FH V7 Fact Sets. I've not noticed any obvious features that differ between versions. I think some other custo...

Re: Source Records

John, you can more easily use the Tools > Work with Data > Addresses... command and Edit... the entries there. If you hold down the Alt key on your keyboard while you click on a Part 2 or Part 3 column heading, that will bring long Addresses to the top where you can then Edit... each one very easily.

Re: Audit RM Direct Import plugin

There appear to be two misnomers there! Firstly, the quoted "Superfluous sort dates..." only apply where Range Dates are used and I doubt if any Census event uses Range Dates. Secondly, there is absolutely no problem with a Sort Date of the year 3850 or 3860 . They are not "free-form dates". FH is p...

Re: TNG and FH event witnesses standoff

You have a valid point regarding the word 'Witness'. It is coined by FH but does confuse users. Most other products use the term 'Shared Fact' that is consistent with the _SHAR tag. Let me think about an alternative. However, did you know that in the Export Gedcom File plugin you can customise the W...

The plugin creates them because that is the option you chose. It is trying to recreate the Fact Witness similar to the FH Facts tab entry for a Fact Witness. i.e. It is similar to the Principal Fact but from the Fact Witness perspective. I would prefer that TNG worked like FH and other products that...
