Re: Old Discs

If you have V6 as an upgrade you need to keep your V5-V6 upgrade CD and the licence sheets for both V5 and V6, you do not need any earlier CDs or licences.

Re: Technical Question on Generations 5.2

Family Historian will let you move your Project folder or any other gedcom data files to any drive you want. Just move them using Windows explorer. The folder which normally lives on C and is more tricky to move is the Program Data folder which contains Queries etc, as Microsoft does not make it qui...

Re: Property Box is Frozen

When you click on the three dots in the centre of the separator bar and drag it left does the right hand side of the property box stay still?

If you click the dock property box icon and dock the box does the source pane stay on the right?

Re: Change layout of family tree to fit a book

Have you tried:
In diagram options turning it to left right format
Cutting the box sizes down and minimising the text in the boxes
If doing All Relatives try using flat format
Using the book option to get book sized pages?

You are welcome, 25 years ago was probably the last time I actually wrote a bubble sort from scratch. Not very efficient, but I think it does the job OK.

Re: FH vs others

Of course that solution assumes you are happy to give Ancestry access to everything in the tree and as their new terms allow matching for DNA even for non public trees this could be a problem for some.

Re: A simple to-do list

Have you experimented with Named Lists, this is what they were designed for, remember you can add Note Records to lists to hold stuff if you don't want to assign it to specific Family or Individual records.

Re: Recording DNA matches in Family Historian

All you need to do for this is to add an extra label to your template in front of the data Personally I would call it Overlap So Overlap: 96 cM across 4 segments You can then add a column to your Query with the following =GetLabelledText(%FACT.NOTE2%,"Overlap:") to include it on your Query.

Re: Media image placement in Summary reports

I have put together a very quick plugin for this. Please test carefully on a COPY of your Project.

It will prompt for a single record, but once tested it would be easy to change to work on multiple records.

Re: Media image placement in Summary reports

I don't think there is an option for that, but you could write a plugin to sort the Individual media by date if that is the media you mean. I assume you are talking about media attached to the Individual on the media tab rather than attached to events or sources.

Re: Fact Types imported from TMG

You can use the Change Any Fact Tag plugin to move all your custom facts to standard Burial Facts and you can then customise those standard Burial Facts to match your requirements.

If you simply trying to get the number of generations away someone is? If so why not use the RelationCode function to get the number of generations.

Re: Running queries from code or another query

Why don't you simply use the Expression in the Diagram rather than setting a flag first?

On the Box tab add an Expression and put

%INDI.CENS[year=1841]%

in and then set your icon preferences.

The best way is to export the subsection and then create a project which will copy in all the images you need to send.

Remember there are NO images in a gedcom only links to them.
