Re: Private Trees

Today, having collected a big Data set of PRs about one name (Rusby) I started working them up into mini trees to see how they fit together. Having reached a conclusion about a group of them in the early 1700s, with PR and grave inscription evidence I thought I'd see what conclusion others had come ...

Re: My Father in 1939 register

People who were already part of the War effort tend not to appear on the 1939 Register. I know 15 sounds a bit young for that but it is just possible that he was maybe in training at the time.

Re: Are English parish record images online?

For Lincolnshire have you tried Lincstothepast.com? It is the Lincolnshire Archives website and has made images available free for years. Granted it is very fiddly to use and FindmyPast has all the images anyway, but on subscription. On FindmyPast it is best to use the A to Z of record sets > Lincol...

Re: Is it safe to delete very old Snapshots?

Sorry for the delay! Mike, my settings are exactly as your image shows. I have never altered anything in there. Also, while I do have several projects, I have never renamed any of them. I didn't really know anything about snapshots (except through reading about how they can be used on this forum). I...

All done. I deleted 21 snapshots from one of my Projects and 42 from another! The other Projects did not have so many.

Thanks Lorna. I have no idea why they are there. I do have several Projects but have certainly used them all within the last year or so. I'll delete the old ones. Thanks

Is it safe to delete very old Snapshots?

I have noticed that I have quite a long list of snapshots in my FH projects. For some strange reason there are a lot from 2016. Is it safe to delete those old ones? I would like to do so because, added together, they are quite large. I save my Projects to a free Dropbox account (and three other plac...

Re: GRO Death Index now upto 2017

It doesn't include those years because they weren't digitsed in the Dove project. Think they got as far as 1957 and stopped. The later ones were always digitised, hence the gap. Unfortunately the date of birth is not given in those later ones on the GRO website, only the year.

Re: Census entry if away from home

For the last 2 weeks or so, I have had to sign in every time I come to FHUG. I never used to have to do this! I'm using an iPad and do tick the Remember me box each time.

Re: Everyone v All Relatives chart

I just made today a one page PDF following the instructions in Knowledge Base. It worked a treat even though I use a different PDF application (Primo PDF). I had never tried it before because I wrongly assumed it would be barely legible, which is not the case!

Re: Ancestry, Find My Past or My Heritage?

As I understand it, hints do not come from some Ancestry (or other site) algorithms but are produced by the number of subscribers who attach them to their trees. There are many, many times when I have gone and easily found the record I need but it has not been produced as a hint because no one else ...

If most of your family are From Scotland, then you can't beat Scotland's People, which you pay for in a different way. Non of the other three sites you mention have the details because they were not allowed to. Getting hints is NOT the same as searching for the records yourself and could lead you se...

Re: Can Family Historian be simplified?

I should have also mentioned that when I started with FH from a different program I spent a few days working through the Sample Family tutorial. This showed me the basics and was well worth the short amount if time spent doing it.

I have examples like this from parishes in several different parts of England. Sometimes the clue is in the page heading.
