Re: Export Gedcom File - TNG - Nicknames

That seems quite clear to me Mike.

However, if you make the label *AKA, as you pointed out to me, this moves the search field up the list of 'Other Events' in the Advanced Search.

Re: Export Gedcom File - TNG - Nicknames

Yes to displaying the names.

The search using the Advanced search works, but it's not the most instinctive thing to do.

Thinking about adding a bit of text to the home page to point people in the right direction.

Thanks for the input.

Re: Export Gedcom File - TNG - Nicknames

I've had a reply from Darrin at TNG:- Under Admin/Custom Event Types, you can edit the "Display Order" for each type. Event types with a lower value should be displayed first, so edit the NAME event and assign it a display order lower than all of your other events types (I think negative numbers wil...

Re: Export Gedcom File - TNG - Nicknames

Hi Mike I tried the TNG mod that you suggested and it worked as you describe. Unfortunately it still leaves the additional names (*AKAs) down at the bottom after all the other events. This means that it takes some scrolling to find them. I might have to try your suggestion of concatenating them into...

Peter, Mike

Thanks for the feedback.

I will try the *AKA method tomorrow.

I went to bed last night with snippets of code in my head so wanted to try it out.

Thanks

Re: Export Gedcom File - TNG - Nicknames

Back to the drawing board I think :cry: I managed to get my code working and it replaces the FIRST additional name correctly. However, it appears that FH only allows one nickname per name. So it seems that red-headed William Smith can have a nickname of "Billy" OR "Red", but not both. So whilst you ...

Re: Export Gedcom File - TNG - Nicknames

Hi Mike Many thanks for the quick response. It may be that other users don't have as many alternative names as I do, hence it isn't an issue for them. Two of my trees contain a lot of Jewish people and have approximately 450 people who have alternative names, either through Anglicisation, or for oth...

Export Gedcom File - TNG - Nicknames

Hi Mike I use TNG for my web database. Unfortunately one of the issues is that TNG is not very good at handling additional names. TNG loads the first instance of NAME into the 'tng_people' table. Subsequent instances of NAME are loaded into tng_events. This means that, whilst additional names are di...

Hi Mike Many thanks for your prompt response. I double checked the file paths in File Statistics and elsewhere, and they all matched. However, as you say, it wasn't seeing it as the same project.

Every month I run a set of queries looking for various errors. One of these checks that I have a valid Country in 'Places'. Now because the country name could appear in any of 4 levels I need to check each of those places. e.g. Brazil Essex, England Liverpool, Lancashire, England Beckside, Kirby Ire...

FTM to FH - Citation to Source

Hi I've been given a gedcom from FTM 2012 which loads OK after following the guides on this forum. However, the originator has used a blanket source for events such as 1881 Census. They have then added a citation to each person's event, with attached media. Is there a way, either simply or using cod...

Re: 'Text from Source' in a Source entry for an event

Many thanks for that Jane, it solves the problem. However, how do we determine the correct data references? ptr:MoveTo(pi4,'~.DATA.TEXT') To use that method I need to discover the references for the other items. I looked in the various Help files but didn't see (or I didn't recognise) anything that ...

Does anyone know if it is possible to pick up, in a query, that a place's Geocode is flagged as 'Tentative' ?

Thanks

Re: Mysterious doubling of file size

Hi Bill

Many thanks for that, it solved the issue.
Because my own files are relatively small I have never had reason to notice.
It was because the new file was so much larger that it jumped out at me.

Many thanks
