Relocating Census Image files

How do other people organise their census images? And do other people download every census image, as prompted by Ancestral Sources? I am concerned about potential disc space. The census images are currently 615 MB. My census images are cuurrenty linked to fh from an external folder called Census. I...

Re: New Computer Help & advice needed please

I just moved to a new computer too - lots of us need to move away from Windows 7. You can install the fh software by downloading and then instaling the latest version from the Calico Pie website. I too ran into trouble. The user names and numbers for 5 and 6 I had carefully kept in an email from Cal...

Re: Save and Restore

I am very grateful to you Mike, and particularly for your patience with me on this thread. I havent actually much clue what I was doing. And have benefitted more than I deserved.

Re: Save and Restore

Mike - They are identical on both computers with my custom columns there on the new computer. One of those columns in my earliest Project shows people marked with a certain flag. This was something I used when I started my first historical project in fh but abandonned when you taught me about Querie...

Re: Save and Restore

Mike - I am your worst guinea pig user as I am not sure exactly what I did or whether I did use the restore properly. Is there any way I can tell? I had no saved custom diagrams. However, the icons are showing on the new computer on the diagram tree in my main project. I added that all my picture li...

Re: Save and Restore

The Error message if I try to restore says that the back up folder has no Family Historian back up data saved.. will go back to the old computer and re copy the Projects folder.

Re: Default folder for Project files

I have done it. Thanks David - tho not quite as you suggested. When you close a Project and are offered Browse for Project, and select that, there is the option below to set the new location as default. The location on the D:/ drive is shown in blue so all one has to do is click on that. At least I ...

Re: Save and Restore

Mike, Forgive me. In the end I did things in my old simple way by copying the App data file from the old computerr to the new. I know that has worked as Jane's DNA query is there on screen. In the project folder itself, I can see the settings file created by your plug in. One reason it wont run to r...

Re: Save and Restore

The present impasse is that to do any restoring with the plug in one needs the same version of fh on both computers. One cannot update the trial version and since my pin is not recognised the trial verrsion is all I have just now. I just have to wait for a new key from Calico Pie. Looking back at th...

Re: Save and Restore

I guess this is irrelevant as the final frustration is that my pin and name are not recognised, Even though I have found the original email for the upgrade to Version 6.

Re: Save and Restore

I am still in the dark. Am I to download fh trial version and enter my key and then use the sample Project to download the plug in? Must I avoid copying across the Project folder and data? How can it restore anything if the data folder is not there? It is a rum world where I can buy and set up my ow...

Re: Save and Restore

Mike. Thank you for your patience. I have run the plug in and copied the resulting file to my external hard drive. However the title page of the plug in, in red, warns one that one must back up one's registry before using the plug in. I dont know how to back up the registry on the new Windows 10 com...

Re: Save and Restore

Thank you so much Mike. I will do that now. I assume this means I dont need to copy the other folder with all my queries etc? I am a bit fed up with public discussion on the public email list telling me to upgrade my Windows. I do not intend to reply there. As I have explained on this forum, MS advi...

Re: Save and Restore

Re: Save and Restore

Mike, You are correct - I may not be able to access sites from within a software program. McAfee may be blocking access. However, I decided not to alter anything as Windows 7 is now vulnerable. I could not decide yesterday whether the problems were due to our internet connection or the 8 year old co...

Save and Restore

I have reluctantly followed advice here and bought a new computer running Windows 10. I do not have the save and restore Plug in and the Plug in site happens to be unavailable this morning. But I read the Plug in Instructions yesterday and did not understand it. (Sorry Mike) I am accustomed to copyi...

Re: More query help please

That does help Mike - as I have found it and run it. Thank you. Your query gives me 86 unexpected missing husbands copied from film - and now hopefully on databases now on line. So it will be interesting. I am so sorry to have forgotten so much. I made massive databases and am now hopefully writing ...

Re: More query help please

Mike, All my queries are in a right muddle. I have 10 queries starting with the word census. Because every time I edit one, I save it as a custom query. I should have marked the one designed by you. I now see that I may already have what I need. One that compared the actual address of (assumed) husb...

Queries - further questions

Mike I apologise for coming back on this. You helped me write a query showing women listed on the census film with children but whose husbands were not shown on the census. i.e. the husband had no entry - in the query their census was Null. That census has now gone on line. So some of the absent fat...

Re: Family Group Report

Peter, Thank you.
I have always used those arrows for separate pages - I was complaining that one couldnt see the whole report. And on this I was wrong - it needed that scroll bar.

Re: Family Group Report

Thank you. No, I didnt realise that the far right scroll bar would give me subsequent pages.
In some things which I dont often use, I am still an fh beginner.

Re: Family Group Report

I too failed to see the little arrow tucked up at top right - and even forgot it again last week when doing a person report for my brother.
Surely most software allows one to view the full report without saving it in another format first?
