Re: Census entry for a widow

Just to clarify, I never suggested that Married surname was used in any circumstances. Further, the topic is in the AS forum, and I did say that it was AS that I was querying, not FH, so not sure my arguments are inaccurate.

Anyway, thanks Nick for agreeing to look at it.

Re: Census entry for a widow

Sorry for the delay in responding, yes, my original example had no marriage date for George & Jane. I fully understand that the existence of what FH calls a spouse does not mean there is a marriage - although in the 1800s this is likely to have been truer in most cases, whereas today it is far less ...

Re: Media images linked to people

Thanks, for confirming my thoughts. The reason for including both views is for reports sent to family members as the wider view often has much more information than just the face. They have no way to view on screen.

Re: Census entry for a widow

Ok I see that (partly). But AS knew she was married in 1891, so with no other info regarding a 2nd marriage should it not default to the married name? After all putting in the marriage date, does not mean she is still known by that surname in the 2nd census. The logic for using the marriage date to ...

Census entry for a widow

On entering a census using AS for 1891, the entry screen shows the wife's maiden name in the entry, but shows the married name in the text. AS query.jpg By 1901, with Jane now a Widow, her maiden name is shown in both sections. AS query2 .jpg I've never noticed this before, but is it intentional tha...

Media images linked to people

When a photo is added to the media tab on the property box, I often want to use the image twice, once as a link to the face, and separately the whole image. So far I have been adding the same image twice, once as a new image, then secondly as an existing media image, then setting a frame on one of t...

Emigration Fact

I've been doing quite a lot of editing of the Emigration and Immigration facts. Now that I've finished, I've spotted an issue I just want to check. I've created an emigration for a lady, and added her husband, and her brother as fellow travellers. In the Individual Records window, the lady has an em...

I made nor make no comment on the number, I was just interested in what size the company was.

Is there any way for the Focus Window (or the Property Box) to display any AKA names. Whilst many of these aka's are obvious (eg Bob for Robert), many are not (eg Dick as an aka for George, Bobby for Henry as two brothers out of 6 all but 1 with obscure aka's) and I can never remember who is who in ...
