Re: Weekly Bulletin

Well done Jane, excellent as always. One extra step in the process, after clicking on 'profile' it takes you to View Profile, you need to click on 'edit profile' to get to the appropriate screen for the Weekly Bulletin option. Thanks again.

Re: AS Error message

I renamed the existing Log files and AS created a new one ok. However for an entry update, as distinct to a new entry. AS needs to change/delete Backup files which again it could not do as access was denied. I believe that it is a folder/file permissions problem but I do not know what they should be...

AS Error message

The first time I have used AS since moving across to a new Windows 10 PC I received an error message when AS tries to open its log file. The date shows that this file was last used with Windows 8.1 PC. Not sure what to do to resolve the issue. Screen capture attached.

I have started experimenting with exporting to Tribal Pages as I have some distant relatives using it. I have noticed an issue. If there is a 'root'person setup in FH it does not get included in the export. I have moved my 'root' person around and each time the export to TP excludes that person. If ...

Re: FTAnalyzer information

If like me after 30 years of records cannot remember what is missing then not quite so good. As per the attached screenpr...

Re: FH 6.2 - FindMyPast Hints

The idea to be able to see who has hints is implemented in Ancestry on their tree layout. It also allows you to view all hints or selected types from a menu choice option. Similarly it should be possible for Calico Pie to introduce that in FH.
