Re: Find My Past

Hmmm .. that'll be why the site gave me 'Whoops error 500' notices all afternoon just as I was on a roll with some research. Incredibly frustrating for those of us who have paid. I had to give up and do housework!!!

Re: Census entry if away from home

I have quite a number of instances of children or young people recorded both with their parents AND somewhere else eg, grandparent, aunt, cousin or as a servant. I also have a wonderful 1911 census where all the numerous children are recorded at the parents home even though some of the have already ...

Just in case you didn't realise .... this has been available for a few years. It is a great resource and I've used it a lot.

Re: Can't stay signed in

Thanks for the suggestions. This is something that has only just started and I've been using this iPad in the same way for a couple of years. I did wonder if it was something to do with the recent move?

Can't stay signed in

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 ...

Re: Ancestry, Find My Past or My Heritage?

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.

Re: Can Family Historian be simplified?

I'm another one just saying ... just use the bits you want to. Enter yourself, parents and children and continue from there. No need to use any queries or plug ins (but you might find them useful one day in the future). I don't use the focus window either, just the list of people and their property ...

Re: Claverdon & Norton Lindsey parishes, Warwickshire - duplicated records?

I have examples like this from parishes in several different parts of England. Sometimes the clue is in the page heading. For example 'Baptisms in the chapel of ...' , the chapel being (at the time) a daughter church or chapel of ease for the main parish church. The baptism records then seem to have...

Re: Comparing trees without merging them

You could make a copy of each with different titles and merge those copies into a 'disposable' file. It would be completely separate from your 'real' files and could be deleted if it doesn't work.

Re: Workhouses and Census's

Workhouses and other institutions such as large schools or mental hospitals often had a schedule of their own with separate headings and a separate cover page. For this reason they may not show up on the street where you know they are situated. It can be hard to search for people too, because they c...

Re: Change Focus window to that shown in property box

I don't use the Focus Window at all. Just couldn't get on with it when it was introduced so always turn it off if it inadvertently puts in an appearance (which is not often!)

Re: What will we do with our research?

Thanks for the ideas. Lots of food for thought. A number of people have mentioned about family history being a hobby like golf or gardening and, of course, we leave little of those behind us!

I have volunteered to write an article for our small Family History Society about what might happen or what provisions we can make for our research when we are gone. My suggestion for the article was met with a resounding 'Yes please!' so I think it is a topic at the back of many peoples' minds. My ...

Hmmm! I don't recall giving the GRO permission to publish my birth and marriage on their indexes? I don't suppose any of us have. Not that I'm bothered but it raises interesting questions.
