Re: Interpretation of Marriage Witnesses etc

Hi Mike,

Looked at the tutorial.

What is the next step please?

Re: Interpretation of Marriage Witnesses etc

Hi Mike, Thanks again for your help. Having read Jane's response, about the Witnessed Event in the Records Window / All Tab, it made me think on which way is the best way going forward. You mentioned that there will be changes to Witnessed Events in a newer version of FH. I assume these changes will...

Re: Interpretation of Marriage Witnesses etc

Hello again, I suppose I am trying to find the best way of standardising the way witness events are entered in my database. Something must have changed without me really noticing the difference. Anyway, we are where we are. I have run a Witnessed Events Standard Query and I have the following: Marri...

Re: Interpretation of Marriage Witnesses etc

Hi Mike, Thanks for trying to come up with a solution. Does this mean that I have to run a witness query for all Marriages and Deaths and then convert manually? I have had a little look at trying to set up an marriage witness entry in the individual's record by right clicking the name.....where does...

Re: Interpretation of Marriage Witnesses etc

Thanks Mike, The convert case 1 to case 2 might be interesting. If I experiment with this plug in, does this remove the entries under the marriage in total i.e. no witnesses remain, even those with just a name are removed (or do they stay) and what about the Minister entry is that separate, so it re...

Interpretation of Marriage Witnesses etc

Hello All and Mike T, A couple of years ago, I started a thread about this in the main Forum and Mike T kindly tried to help me. I love using AS to input information. I have entered marriages through AS over the years, since my first purchase of version 3 way back when. I have been using version 6 s...

Re: Ancestral Sources Template ~ Electoral Register UK

I'm not sure yet unfortunately...… I have an Electoral Roll / Poll Book for 1853, so I tried putting that in the 1832 option (as it does not give an 1853 option). Doesn't work because when you change the Census Date to 1853 it won't let you store the entry! Is there any way around this? As you know,...

Hello again, Just an update......I removed vers 1.4 and reinstalled 1.5. On my laptop (screen resolution, 1600 x 900), it appears exactly the same as in vers 1.4. Too big for the screen, I cannot see the bottom of the window and I can just drag the margins to make it wider but not narrower or smalle...

As an addendum, I can drag the window around, but I cannot see the bottom of the window and unlike Mike, I cannot even adjust the width. Hope it helps.

Re: Occupation entries after burial

Thanks for your suggestions.....in general, the occupation is the same as expected. I think I added most of the marriages via Ancestral Sources, so I already have a Source, but the actual marriage date is entered for the deceased father's occupation etc. Most of these discrepancies come from marriag...
