Re: Exception log question after gedcom import from RM7

As Mike says if you post the section we can see the error.

A good rule of thumb if there is nothing you recognise as notes or other information it's nothing to worry about too much.

Re: Splitting a Gedcom file prior to reassembly for TNG?

Ah the joy's of One and One, I remember why I have always avoided them, so it's a memory limit you are hitting when importing the file rather than an upload issue. Something like Fatal error: Allowed memory size of x bytes exhausted (tried to allocate x bytes) in /path/to/php/script I assume you mea...

4/5 The shared couple is the first shared Ancestral couple. You can find this easily using the How related diagram with spouses and children turned off.

Re: Import from UFT (Ultimate Family Tree)

When you imported to Family Historian, you will have got a report of any exceptions, did you review that carefully? As mailing addresses and emails are not valid Gedcom 5.5 tags, it's possible the data has been imported as "Uncategorised Data Fields" or UDFs If so they would have been reported as su...

Hyperlinks only work with Web servers so would not work for this. Any linking would, as now, rely on other programs allowing command files to be attached.

Re: I have duplicates that I'm having trouble merging

I suspect when you did the Merge you did not check and Merge the Family Records as your people have the same Reference number.

Re: Recording DNA matches in Family Historian

Not looked at that yet, you can't add Facts to places, there are a few ways off the top of my head, as there is nothing to stop you putting private notes against places or adding another Labelled text to the notes against the DNA Marker.

To detail the Source of your information you should create a Source for your Birth Certificate and then attach that to the event as a source citation.

Just to add to Mike's notes that I am pretty sure you need V6 of Nova when using V4 of Family Historian, I'll update the Knowledge base to state the 7.7 Nova only works for V6 of FH which is shown on the FAQ on the Family Historian site.

Prior to V6 you could not use extended characters, so what people used to do was add a media image with the name in non ascii script, would that work for you in the meantime?

Re: Find My Past appears to have the new GRO Index

Not sure, I just noticed this week that most of the entries I was working on had the information. I have just managed to find 4 more children for one couple all of which were born and died between census and all fit neatly into the gaps in the existing children.
