Re: Research Log

I retired Genquiry a long time ago, but you could try the Research Planner plugin. The plugin is available from the plugin store and there's an overview here:

For users who are not logged in, the default is UTC. Registered users choose their time zone at registration and can amend it in their Board Preferences thereafter.

Re: Grandchild, parent unknown

I'd add an unknown daughter to the Salt family, add a Neville husband without a forename to that unknown daughter, and make the granddaughter a child of that couple. All with copious notes explaining why. Then when you track down her parents,you just edit the relevant individuals -- or merge the Sal...

Re: Multifact

Did you just delete the file? Or did you delete the fact set from within FH (which would also have updated the index file for fact sets which is at C:\ProgramData\Calico Pie\Family Historian\Fact Types\Standard\GroupIndex.fhdata?

Re: Multifact

Colin, have you made any changes to fact definitions?

Are you able to run the plugin in debug mode, add a breakpoint at line 1800 (it should only go there a few times and tell me what the value of filename is just before the error message?

Re: Multifact

Thanks for the feedback, Colon.

The Tasks Created pane is closed by default for those people who have very small screens -- it allows them to maximise the area available for data entry. In a future release, I'll think about how I can make it more obvious.

Re: Alternatives to Ancestral Sources?

If you've been using it to enter data, what Gedcom file have you specified to save the data? You don't have to use FH with AS but you do have to specify a Gedcom file for AS to function. a unitary, standalone package Have you tried FH? There's a trial download of FH available at https://www.family-h...

Re: Alternatives to Ancestral Sources?

I'm not aware of any alternatives, currently. When you say 'trying to use it as a database for the family records I've so far been able to accumulate' what exactly are you expecting of it? It does no data storage of its own; it provides a data-entry front end to Family Historian for the most commonl...

Mike, thanks -- I'm a bit concerned about inserting text that might also occur naturally (e.g. in an Auto-note or a template sentence -- might be unlikely but 'users do strange things'! I shall keep thinking.

Re: Multifact

No -- I rebuilt from scratch and reinstated all my customisations manually; there aren't that many of them -- custom facts sets, queries and reports (pulled off a nightly backup of the whole PC).

Re: Multifact

The PC I'm typing on was completely wiped and rebuilt a couple of months ago and only had FH V6.2 and the update to 6.2.7 installed... so I only acquired those lines in the installation process. One possibility is, I suppose, that Colin copied the standard.fhf file from C:\Program Files (x86)\Family...

Re: Multifact

So how have my files, and the files of everyone who tested or used the plugin before Colin, acquired the Hidden lines? I haven't adjusted the Hidden settings for all those facts, nor do I suspect the others users have done so.

Do your 'active' fact set files have the lines present of missing?

Re: Multifact

That's odd -- Standard.fhf is delivered when FH is installed, with the 'Hidden' lines in place -- even the old V1 file which isn't used has them in place. And there isn't any way within FH to remove the 'Hidden' lines -- you can only toggle them off and on. Likewise, if you create a custom fact set,...

Re: Multifact

Mike, the Progress bat code shouldn't be doing anything because the data set in question is too small for the progress bar to be triggered... In the New Year, I'm going to provide Colin with a version without the progress bar to see if it makes any difference.

Re: Multifact

That's useful -- points more and more towards either the symlinks or the contents of one of the fact set files.

I'll add getting you to uninstall your custom facts and reinstall them one set at a time to try to narrow down where the problem lies, when we resume.
