Re: Born out of wedlock

Hi Not exactly the same topic but I think related. My cousin's natural paternal grandmother, Christina, was the daughter of a German immigrant and an English lady. It is not known if his first wife had died or returned to Germany. On all the records I have found they are referred to as married. On C...

Naturalization records

Hi Does anyone know if there are any on line records for immigrants who have become British Subjects please. I am looking at a German citizen who came to Britain in the 1850s and on consequent censuses he is recorded as naturalized British Subject. Presumably his British wife would not then become G...

Re: Unmarried parents

Hi
Under the spouse you will find a section labelled "status" this gives you the option to record the relationship.

Father on birth certificate

Hi,
For some reason I have mislaid my list of dates for rules governing birth certificates. Does anyone know the date on which a father had to be present when registering an illegitimate birth please? Just can't find it on the web. Thank you.

Re: Can Family Historian be simplified?

The beauty of FH is that you can use it at whatever level you choose. I have had the program since it first came out and still only use it on a very basic level.

Re: FHUG on the move

I do not see it on any other web page.

I had not noticed before but have been away for a couple of days and not been really paying a lot of attention just having a quite read of all the posts. It was this morning when I looked and noticed the Not secure part.
Sorry to be a menace.

Thank you for getting back. I think I might have solved the having to log in problem as I have re saved the new forum to my favorite's bar and having tried it a couple of times it appears to be ok but the "Not secure" has not gone away. I will contact Jane when she gets back.

Re: Who Do You Think You Are - Whitehalls

That is really interesting, not being from "down south" I hadn't thought of that.

What I did notice was that when a relative supposedly presents a certificate, which was presumably in their possession, it had been purchased around the time the programme was made.

Re: Unlink from one parent

Hi Mike Thank you for the reply. Now you put it like that it is logical to make the extra steps. (Just me being in a rush!) At the time I just thought that why didn't I have the option just to unlink from father but of course the child needs to be linked to another family even if there isn't a fathe...

Unlink from one parent

Hi Probably a very basic question but could not see an easier method. I have just found out that 2 of the children of my great aunt were born several years after her husband died. I therefore needed to unlink them from her husband. I clicked "unlink from" but it only gave me the option to unlink fro...

Re: 1939 Register

David, that was what was my problem, you get one from FMP and a different one from Ancestry. I totally agree with you about how the locations are recorded. Stoke on Trent is a nightmare as only Stoke is used and not the individual towns and there are lots of streets bearing the same name in each of ...

1939 Register

When the 1939 Register was only on FMP the transcriptions gave a ref. RG101 etc, However when it appeared on Ancestry the ref was totally different and not with the usual RG101 then a string of numbers and letters. I do find the images on Ancestry clearer and sometimes they cannot be found on FMP. H...

Hi David Newton
Yes thank you I have looked at it. Not been working on that line lately so will look again when return to it. I did have a DNA match who had Wildgoose but he said he had got to a Viking and when I asked him if he had looked at it I never heard from him again!

Hi, I would appreciated any thoughts on the following situation. My 2x gt aunt, Ann Yale, had an illegitimate child. I have given her an unknown spouse with status, "never married". She then married George and had 5 children. I have made George spouse no. 2 in the usual way. George died in 1874 in S...
