Re: FHUG on the move

Thanks Jane, back to the old skin which I prefer.

This server seems much quicker and so far no issues accessing the board. Thanks for all the hard work, I know that it is no simple task transferring servers.

Re: FHUG on the move

Thanks Jane, I presume one of the tweaks that will happen in due course is the ability to change the forum skin?

Re: Add a new source

Yes it is dead easy to do.

One way is menu Add > Source

You can also create it from the Auto Source Citation icon on the tool bar.

Re: Export Gedcom Plugin - Ancestral Quest

Thanks for the suggestions. I did mention Mac in my original post, you probably missed it Mike. We looked at Gramps whilst she was here and didn't like it. AQ is an evolution of PAF which I used before I found FH but now realise why I changed :D I will take a look at Ancestris thanks for that Mervyn

Thanks for that I hadn't realised that Heredis was free, the Mac is the issue. Just checking it is only free for 50 people to that is no good.

Thanks for that, the family are going back tonight, that's why i haven't been back about this. I now have AQ loaded on my Mac so I can play around until I get it right and then send the file over to her. I will let you know how I get on tomorrow once peace has descended.

Re: How to download Ancestral line of one Surname

I don't know about V5 but in version 6 I do this using the Export Gedcom option, select the root individual that I want and then say add using query and use the all relatives query as the source for the remaining individuals.

Export Gedcom Plugin - Ancestral Quest

I see that there is no option for Ancestral Quest in the plugin. I have just exported my DIL's tree for her and she has the free version of Ancestral Quest. On import it threw up a multitude of errors mainly to do with not liking the ADDR tag and also for ages it doesn't like 35y. Needless to say it...

This is just and independent user to user help forum, there is no direct link to Calico Pie the authors of Family Historian. What you suggest is something only they can add to the help file within Family Historian so you should pass this suggestion direct to them.

Re: Cheap Wills

You can do this in the same way that you can set markers on diagrams for the Census or BMD certificates etc. You will probably have to create a BMP image that you want to use.

Re: Surname list and count per project

You can do this and more in FTanalyzer which is a free download. It just reports on your Gedcom it doesn't change any data so it won't mess anything up.

Re: Can you copy a Record from one Gedcom file to another Gedcom File

Yes

All you do is select export a gedcom and choose the records to export and then fill the options in. If you want more options than available in the standard export then take a look at Mikes plugin.

@Mike

The only problem is that Catalina, the next version of OSX, is in public beta which means its delivery to live is imminent and there has been no update from Codeweavers for 12 months.

Re: FH 32bit or 64bit?

Mervyn I think that you are mistaken Crossover v18.x is a 64bit app and OSX Mohave does not complain about it. It is FH inside Crossover that generates the warning.
