Re: Creating a Custom Query

But Mike I have never understood that sentence

"If the first filter is 'Add If' or 'Add Unless' it initially makes the result set empty."

Re: Creating a Custom Query

I think one answer is that in fh one doesnt add people with certain characteristics.
I start with everyone and then remove people "unless".

So I can go through removing people who dont have a particular birth place
And then remove further groups according to the dates of birth

Re: Closing panes in V7

Mike, I have just opened my son in law's tree and am so relieved to see the source pane there, with the source titles displayed, just as they used to be. I think I caused the problem by squashing fh up to one side of my large computer screen so as to view the images of ancestry documents on the left...

Re: Closing panes in V7

Thank you Mike. Very helpful. The dragging the column in the source pane does not work for me. It springs back. But using the side bar of the source pane and dragging it to the left widened that column. This is what I want. Is there a way of remembering and saving the width of these panes in horizon...

Closing panes in V7

I have for the first time been using fh7 for entering longer lists of people. To be exact about 145 deaths. So back to the issue of sources in fh7. I notice that where a source is cited for an event, the source pane shows only its number. Is there any way of setting this pane so the title of the sou...

Re: Date Phrases

Thank you for your help. I asked just to make sure that the experts did not have a way of speeding it up. I decided against adding a death period. Although most post war USA deaths and some German are on line, Polish post war deaths are I think not, due to different data protection. So it is current...

Date Phrases

I am working on place studies for World War 2. In order to look at survival rates, I need to search for death records. On the Eastern front where civilian death rates were high, there are few registrations, and to record the lack of a findable death record I have been typing nf in the date field (No...

Re: Automatic Source Citations for Names not working in V7?

I can only say what happens to me. I set the automatic source citation for the Online German Census of 1939. And make that automatic source active. Then I click Add unrelated person.

Re: Automatic Source Citations for Names not working in V7?

I just tried it. I use German and UK censuses for 1939 a great deal. So I use auto add source a lot. Automatic didnt work for Name. but I then added a place of birth and it added the source for that and fh then added the same source to the name as well. Same happens as soon as I select a gender.

Re: RE-use Sources across different projects

I have four large place studies and keep them separate. To copy the sources. Following Mike's instructions when I was new to fh, I copied the fh project with the sources. Created a dummy person to facilitate deletion of everyone else. Then deleted all the people in the copy and was ready to start ag...

Re: Tracking an Individual's Names

Name change is an event or can be, using Deed Poll.
That is what I do on my trees. Even if there is no actually a deed poll. For instance German Jews who were refugees from Hitler later had British names given them when serving in the British army.

Re: Two people as Pedigree Chart Root Person

I gave the twins a child called West Twins Tree. Then one doesnt have to delete the Dummy; it acts as a title.. But I still get all the ancestors of the twins duplicated, So need to add some joining lines and delete others. I am rather surprised as I had thought fh made Treedraw redundant. Sorry to ...

Re: Two people as Pedigree Chart Root Person

I wanted a single dummy person at the bottom. One needs a single person as the root of any tree.
But once you have the tree you can deleted them from the diagram.

Re: Two people as Pedigree Chart Root Person

Apologies. But could one not do the same by adding (and then deleting) a dummy child instead of a dummy parent? Apparently not in fh, as it seems that fh wont let me marry two sibblings. I dont create trees using fh (I use Treedraw software) and you are the expert Mike, but I thought one could add a...

Re: One Name Study and personal tree: how handle together

I had the same problem, although I was using TMG at the time. In the end I extracted most of my own relatives and retained the other Project as a research database, one of my four place studies. I found it inconvenient to have my personal tree swamped by names added from on-line databases.
