Re: Time Lines

I just downloaded this and ran it for one person. In spite of the warnings about google chrome, it looks good. Though the image needed dragging.

Re: Export GEDCOM File - Roots Magic - standardized place names

I regularly use the export GEDCOM plug in to export to Rootsmagic. I own the software. Version 7. I didnt ask deep questions, Mike, and have had no complaints. I keep one or two of my family trees in Rootsmagic anyway. RM is my regular software for sharing because the free version of RM allows anoth...

Re: Recording DNA matches in Family Historian

Jane, I may have missed something here. However what happens if an individual with whom one has one match also has a second match to another person on one's tree. As set up, I think your query shows each match only once. Can the query be adapted so one sees every instance and one gets that person li...

Exporting without living people

When sending gecoms to ancestry and fellow researchers, one often needs to remove living people. This was very easy in TMG. I cannot understand the two sets of instructions in fh. I have not used flags in fh. and when I look at the glossary of terms in fh help, Flags is not even on the list. To run ...

Re: Sending a list of people

Thank you both. I will now do this.
I observe that in both cases the solution involves running a query. Which did occur to me but it seemed a bit odd to concoct a query that would include everyone.

Sending a list of people

I have a project listing 145 people mentioned in the correspondence of my uncle who was killed aged 20 in WW1. It holds little data, For some men I have date of birth, date of death and the odd note about regiment. What is the best way of sending this list of names to a military researcher who knows...

If your numbers are not working, I would contact them as Calico Pie are the people who handle subscripti...

Re: Individual Records List

There could be several reasons. Depending on your data entry. Punctuation and spaces will disturb the sort order.

Re: Tools or Tips for Patterns in Research Data

What do you want to discover? I have never tidied up my place list but yes I do query my data. Regularly. I was helped by tuition from Mike Tate when I began and I use no tools or tips except for using fh Query. To select a place in a census or a b.m.d. involves one line of the query. I keep some qu...

I have a named list of about 85 people. I want to send their details to someone who doesnt use Gedcom. I want to send details with their parents, spouses and children (if any) and census entries which would normally be in an individual report. A list report doesnt give complete information.

Double clicking on child

If I double click on a selected child, hoping to make them the focus person, it has no effect. One has to move the mouse and click on the focus icon. And then the same as one moves to the next sibling. It could be that fh does not provide this link. But it annoys me. So I think it worth asking wheth...

Averages and Show Project Statistics.

I am sorry to bother you Mike but yesterday I was looking to see whether fh allows one to find the average age of a group of people? I think fh lets one see the average age at death? So logically it should be possible to find the average age of people at a census. I adapted the fh query to find the ...

Re: Add media URL short cut

How kind of you Mike to go to that trouble for me and to explain. Thank you so much. The back history of that video and who is who may still be fraught and the singer is still living. I am content to leave it as it is.

And I have now found and added two more. Thanks you so much for this plug in.

Re: Add media URL short cut

That is very helpful Mike thank you.
I had not understood that (like the Joe Wicks You tube exercises we follow) a you tube link to this song will lead to an initial advertisement.
But slow of me. I am sorry. Will now do this.

On line video as media exhibit?

There are various musicians in my family - classical and pop.
Where there is a surviving video of them, sometimes only on line, I have wanted to add it (as a file or a web link) to their media tab.

But how does one do this? One can only drag and drop still images there?

Re: Introducing myself and a little (or maybe big) question

I seem to remember that the split in your sources is due to the dates at which the indexes were gradually put on line. They would also indicate whether or not the maiden name of the mother was in the original birth index, and was thus for the first time, also provided on line. Initially the on line ...
