Re: Wall Charts

Hi Richard, Yes, FH can print similar charts, although I am not sure if it can have a background like the one you have in your example. I am sure someone will come along and confirm that. You could download the 30 day free trial and give it a whizz to see if it suits you and whether the charts are w...

Re: Is FH As Good As We Think

Helen Please don't take this the wrong way, but in MY opinion you should not totally ignore the software that is earning you money and keeping your customers happy even if you are developing a new version. This software will be used by many people for years to come even after Version 8 arrives never...

Re: Is FH As Good As We Think

Since May 2018, you jest me. I suppose if it takes 2 1/2 years and counting to update a program, how did they ever manage to write version 6 in the 2 years from the release of version 5 :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Re: Is FH As Good As We Think

I know you would say you are happy with FH , but most of you have walked away from other software to end up here. You are only as good as your next upgrade. As for b...

Is FH As Good As We Think

Hi all, Now don't take my subject heading as a criticism of FH, I will explain. I have been looking around FHUG and began to realise that to do a lot of things on FH you require to use things that are actually not in the FH program eg plugin's, companions or the goodwill of some very knowledgeable c...

I was faced with this problem when I found that I had added an ancestor who had his son at 40, not impossible but unlikely!
I have friends who just had their first born age 42 & 43 so not as unlikely as you might think

Re: Mapping Locations

Mike,

Thanks, that fixed the problem. I don't know why it did that, as I haven't changed these since importing them from FTM and they are in the correct format. Hey Ho, problem solved so I will just have to wait for FH7 and then I can get started on the redo.

Hi All, I have just been having a look at some of the locations of facts in my tree. I have noticed that many of them are way out and am now wondering if I have done something wrong while inputting locations. Two that stood out for me was that I stayed in Dunstable, Bedfordshire, England just after ...

I had this problem and solved it by just opening the image rotate it and rotate it back then click save. This cured the problem for me.

Re: Private Trees

Using the information in other people's trees is very dangerous as many trees contain errors. The copying of trees perpetuates these errors. The worst case I have found of this (so far) is an obvious error which has been copied into well over 350 trees on Ancestry alone. This demonstrates that the ...

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...

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.

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.

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: 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.
