Individual Records List

This is probably a very silly question but why are certain individuals not in the main Individual records List, but mostly above the alphabetical main list, or occasionally below it?
I find this list very useful when moving directly to other families.
TIA

Re: Y-DNA test

Hi Mike

Yes I did try that route some years ago but unfortunately the Paddington records did not go back as far as 1878. It may be worth trying again now though.

Than you

Y-DNA test

I have a major brick wall, in that my surname is probably not strictly correct going back to 1878. My grandfather, who died before I was born, was born in Paddington Workhouse in 1878. I have the Birth Certificate which shows only the mother (with my surname), showing her as a housemaid. I know that...

Re: Family Relationships

So sorry Mike. I didn’t read your reply closely enough. I index by name currently but I’m thinking of doing it on a generation basis. That way all the relationships such as second cousins, twice removed, for example, will be in the same area. Thank you btw, I did print out that list as you suggested...

Family Relationships

Like many FH users I expect I tend to print out lots of information before inputting to FH. I am trying to organise my folders, specifically for indirect relatives, cousins and the like. I don't like paper chaos! Can I produce a list of relationships from FH so that I can label my folder indexes, i....

Producing a list of each generation

Is it possible for FH to produce a list of each generation?
For instance a list of the Great Great Great Grandparents, which should be of course 32 names?
Or the 64 4 x Greats?
Many thanks

Re: Use a single census entry for whole family

Many thanks to all responders. Much appreciated and I have printed off your solutions. However in this particular instance I do think that Legacy has a much simpler option in that you enter all the census details, the whole page, for one family member, usually the Head of course. There is then a SHA...

Use a single census entry for whole family

Hi all
Not a newbie to Family History but new to FH
When entering a census fact how do I avoid making the same entry to all family on the census page.
In other words can I apply that one fact to all the family?
Many Thanks
Paul
