Re: Ancestral Sources Version 5.3.0

You can ignore that message as AS is perfectly safe. It is a false positive. It is true that it is not commonly downloaded, just like most genealogy software. It is true that it is not signed because that costs significant money and Nick Walker is quite reasonably not prepared to spend that on a fr...

Re: Ancestral Sources Version 5.3.0

I see that the link for AS has changed to 5.3.0 on FHUG but it throws up this message on Microsoft Defender Smartscreen.

Re: Insert today's date

I am not disagreeing with you Mike, I am just pointing out that if it is wrong as Nick and you are stating then AS should not be encouraging it by giving it as an option.

But entering today's date has no genealogical significance.
Obviously Peter has a use for it and many others who use Ancestral Sources, or the option would not be in AS.

Hi Mike, Yes I have been registered for the bulletin since I purchased FH6 and have had emails from them before (No change of email address). Just to make sure I have re subscribed today, in case my email address has been deleted for some reason. Doesn't excuse not having the information on your web...

Re: FH7 Looks?

Please calm down folks. There is no need to make false assumptions and get hung up about release dates. FH7 will be ready when it is ready, not before. It is not prudent for developers to release much detail about future improvements as doing so would put them at a commercial disadvantage. Calico P...

Re: FH7 Looks?

HMMMMMM!!!!!! I agree that FH6 is a great program, but whether I would recommend it to someone just now I am not so sure. Imagine buying FH6 seven months ago when you were being offered a free upgrade to FH7, you learn how to use the program and CP release FH7 and it is so different that you have to...

Re: Build description.

I agree with Propor(tionate), not for any other reason than that was how I was taught to write at school (Except for the capital P). So the ropor part would be identical to how I would have written it.

Re: Who should you add to your tree?

Mike L As I said, I had always thought about this in the back of my head. It came to the fore a month or so ago when I watched a video and the person on it kind of described her tree as being similar to the way you have yours. My tree is similar but with the parents of the spouses (to help identify ...

Re: Entering information

Mike, It is not really the close relations that are the problems it is the slightly more distant, say a son-in-law registering a death when you don't know the daughter or as in my example a cousin as a witness (you have the parents from marriage cert, you have to add the grandparent, their daughter/...

Entering information

I know I asked a similar question back in August last year, but not the same. So here goes, when entering information into FH (or any other genealogy software for that matter) is it better/easier to add the names you have then adding the sources/citations afterwards or do it one person at a time. I ...

Who should you add to your tree?

Hi All, I have always in the back of my head wondered this. Who should I be adding to my family tree? When I first started with FTM and Ancestry I went a bit mad and added anyone (probably like most peeps), just because I could. Once I settled in and thought a bit more about it, I realised I wasn't ...

Websites will be a bit further down the road for me. As I said earlier I am just looking to put up some basic information for some of my relatives to have a look at. Thanks very much for the suggestions though, I will keep them in mind for later, once I complete the re-do of my tree. Hopefully in FH...

Re: Step sister

Thanks Lorna, It is actually my step-sister, I had never noticed that FH said No Direct Relationship until today. I was sure FTM did say step-sister and actually imported my tree back into it just to check I was right before I posted my question. I thought I was maybe missing something. Thanks again

Agreed Mike, I don't use the same passwords anywhere, either.

There are many out there who do use the same password and not too strong either and as Salted SH...
