Sharing Facts?

Is it necessary to share a Birth Certificate with the 'Mother' and 'Father'? I share the fact with the 'Informant' who is usually one of the parents, but do others also share with the parents, it seems like a lot of extra work when child is automatically joined to the parents, unless I suppose Adopt...

Re: Marriage Icons in Charts

Thank you Mike, I'll just leave it as it is, I doubt if it'll crop up again as I haven't found very many second marriages and certainly none that I'll have a certificate for, it just puzzled me that is all.

Thanks

Margaret.

Re: Marriage Icons in Charts

Thank you Mike, I don't have any multiple marriages so far where I have certificates for either or both and normally the 'M' appears under both boxes, just as long as that is the way it is meant to work and I haven't done anything that I shouldn't!!!

Thank you.

Marriage Icons in Charts

I have just noticed something strange (or more probably I have done something silly!!!), I have my charts set up to show BMD icons under the boxes in the charts, but only when I have the appropriate certificate. I have just noticed that my great uncle who married twice doesn't have the 'M' icon unde...

Re: Alternatives to Ancestral Sources?

Have you tried Custodian 4? That stores information but doesn't integrate with FH the way that AS does.

Re: Birth and death registrations.

Re: Can Family Historian be simplified?

BTW Rusty: You don't need to close the Property Box window before moving on to another person in the Diagram.
Just single-click that other person and the Property Box contents change.

Thank you Mike, I'd forgotten about that.

Re: Can Family Historian be simplified?

I usually enter people directly into the diagram which I think is wonderfully simple and you can see your tree grow and how it is shaping as you add people. Double clicking on a name brings up the individuals box right in the centre of the screen though you can move it around to suit yourself, when ...

Re: Shared Census Sentence

Thank you Mike and Brent, I've spent the afternoon trying out AS as well as tinkering generally with my database and I'm still undecided what to do, I think that a few days quiet reflection might be the answer.

So thank you both for your input and thank you Mike for your patience.

Thanks Mike, this afternoon I’m going to sit down and have a serious look at my file, it is in a muddle where I’ve tried out various things with varying success (or in my case failure!).

Thank you for all of that Mike, I really just wanted to keep households together but obviously my ideas aren't possible or feasible.

Thanks for your reply Mike, sorry I'm not very good at explaining.

I'm getting in a tangle again, I want to use the Family Census Fact and share it with the other people living in the house, I would like my sentence to read something like:- 'William Chilcott appeared in the census in the household of George Chilcott and Elizabeth Lawley on 6 June 1841in Moorfields,...

Short Fact Type List

Sorry to be a pain, I'm sure that I've seen this on the forum before, but, I'm obviously searching using the wrong criteria. When you go to add a fact to someone you are presented with a short list of facts then you have to click on 'More Fact types...' to get to the one that you need, I would reall...

Old Discs

Not sure if I am in the right place for this question, if not apologies. I have the old Discs from Version 2 through to V6, do I need keep them all or is it just necessary for me to keep V6?

Thanks for any advice.

Re: 1939 Icon creation

Hello Mike, oh dear I do make life difficult for me (and you who manages to work out my problems and rescue me), I have 633 Citations in my custom fact, is there an easy way to convert all of them into a Census Fact perhaps keeping the sentence wording which substitutes 'Census' for '1939 Register'?...
