Multimedia Query Filter Bug

Jane, what is the recommended method for registering bugs such as this one? There does not seem to be a 'Known Bugs List' on either this FHUG website nor the Family Historian website. I know there is the Articles category of 'Bugs' , but it does not appear to be well maintained. Apart from the V3-V4...

Property Box Custom Download

I assume your filename now looks like PB-INDI.txt or perhaps PB-INDI.fhdata.txt
Simply rename the file to be PB-INDI.fhdata
Ignore the warning that changing the file extension may make it unusable.

Property Box Custom Download

If you carefully preserve copies of your two PB-INDI files, and open them with a simple text editor such as Notepad you will see they are simple text files with a fairly obvious format. The [S-1] and [S-1B] sections near the end define the Main tab top and spouse sections. The [C-1] to [C-n] section...

Deleting data for Living Persons

There is a twist in the tail of this technique. Although all the Facts have been excluded from the Individual Records for Living people, there may still be Source Records containing details of these Living people. For example, the deceased parents of living people may still have Occupation , Residen...

BMD Query and Icons on charts

In summary it lists individuals WITHOUT a complete set of Birth, Marriage & Death Certificates. Excludes individuals with no surname...

Places - same number of levels for all?

For the GRO registration period after 1837 I use the Registration District and County to formally identify the Place for each Fact , especially BMD and Census Records. Then the Address field records the House/Street/Town postal address. For example the GENUKI web site records the Barrow-in-Furness, ...

The preference in the Focus window depends on the order of these two Family records in your Gran's Individual record. Open the Property Box for Gran and select the A...

Renaming Living People as ';Living Person'

Unfortunately, phreplace does not work on Windows Vista as documented on the developers website, and probably explains why I cannot get it to work on Windows 7.

Unless anyone knows a workaround.

Another question re adoption

It is partly personal preference.

If do not add the adoptive parents as a second set of parents then FH cannot create a family tree diagram with the adoptive parents linked to the child.

Renaming Living People as ';Living Person'

Deleting the NAME of every Living individual is easy, but replacing is more difficult.

Create an Individual Query that lists the %INDI.NAME[1]% of everyone who has %INDI._FLGS.__LIVING% set.
In the Results, select the entire Name Column, then press Delete key, and OK the warning.

Adoption and Name Change

The popular convention is to enter the Individuals main Name as their given birth name as on their Birth Certificate.

All other names such as married women changes of Surname, adopted names, deed pole changes, titles such as Duke of York, etc, are entered as Alternate aka names.
