Re: Naturalization records

Have just seen this. I too have been working with these records. And even in the 1930s women lost their nationality on marriage and acquired that of their husband. I think that when a German naturalised here , his wife and children were naturalised too. It is very annoying as the certificates dont a...

Re: FH Version 7

Thank you so much for posting that -

I always buy every upgrade of the genealogy software I use. I can afford to and it is done to support the designers.
I would have bought Verson 7 any way. But lots of things here please me very much.

Re: What to do with Trees of DNA Matches?

This is an example of how I used the TMG system. The overall Project can consist of one or more data sets. You have to open the Project and then select how many of the data sets within it you wish to open. The multiple datasets mean that, if someone related sends you a tree connected with your own f...

Re: What to do with Trees of DNA Matches?

Thank you. Even now I am not sure I understand unrelated additions as constituting a sub tree. I used add unrelated person hundreds of times to build history research projects in fh - emigration and deportation lists etc. So have added many thousands of unrelated people. I also do the same with DNA ...

You can keep as many unconnected subtrees as you like in one FH Project (just like TMG I suspect).
Mike sorry. I cant find anything about sub trees in the fh help. I didnt know they existed.

What to do with Trees of DNA Matches?

What to do with Trees of DNA Matches? One of my ancestors arrived in UK about 1785. Many of my most interesting DNA matches have the same or similar surnames but their researched trees do not reach as far back as the actual DNA links. My difficulty is what to do with the trees made available to me b...

I also have a 5 year old Sony Vaio laptop (not my main computer) model VPCEC3SOE. Updated from Win 7 to Win 10 with no problems at all.
As a matter of interest did MS prompt you to update from 7 to 10?
Or did it advise you not to but you ignored the warning?

Re: FH Version 7

I am repeatedly advised to upgrade to Windows 10. Please accept that my lovely Sony all in one desktop is not compatible. Bits and pieces may stop working if it is upgraded.
I may well continue to use it as I have virus protection and we dont do tax or banking on line.

FH Version 7

It worries me that people who went to the recent genealogical show were given details of fh 7 which the rest of us dont have.
Will fh 7 run on Windows 7?

I had to abandon windows XP because fh would no longer run on it.

Re: Sorting dates with before and after?

Mike I need to sort who died before June 1945 from the people who died after June 1945 so the difference between before and after is vital.
Same goes for November 1918.

Sorting dates with before and after?

I use fh for historical research. Listing war dead from WW1 or Holocaust deaths, there may be no exact death date so many involve a date including the word before or after. When I sort a named list by date of death, the sort order ignores the words before and after. And sorts both according to surna...

Export spreadsheet from Named List

Can one export a fh Named list with its columns as a spread sheet that someone can read in Excel?
Or a query result as an alternative?

There may be instructions on this but I have tried to search and cant find any export that is not a GEDCOM

Re: All addresses in an area

I am rather slow at understanding techniques in fh. Is a query always better?

Why should one not simply use the binocular text search?
Tho I see on my project that search also brings up Kentish Town and Kent in Washington USA.
