Re: Backing Up

C:\Users\Jane\Documents\Family Historian Projects\Back Up\Family Historian holds the Backup and Restore FH Settings Plugin backups in various folders.

Re: All in the Family

A pointer is always a pointer, but you must always consider what it is pointing at. Is it pointing at a FAMC tag or at a FAM tag? The confusion is that a FAMC tag holds a pointer to the FAM tag. You don't have a problem with a pointer to a DATE tag where it holds a Date value. You just have to think...

Re: All in the Family

You are missing the point(er) :D They are pointing directly to the %INDI.ADOP.FAMC% and %INDI.FAMC% tags respectively. That is why they are shown as Link to Family record (...Gordon Andrew CARLSTROM and Neva Elaine POTTER) It is the links within those two tags that are pointing to the %FAM% records ...

Re: Census Dates

Tony, there is no easy solution to that scenario. Even if such a Date were added to AS the problem is where to save it in the standard FH/GEDCOM data structure. If you chose to enter such Census records with the Enumeration Date instead of its Census Date that would work in FH , but tools like the A...

Re: Change census date from Year to full date

Mike, Jane's proposal of ^1841 will only match OCCU that have just 1841 as the Date . Any more complete Date such as Jan 1841 or 6 June 1841 will NOT match the criteria. Also, if that still needs further filtering, then use the Named List technique mentioned earlier, and then Select Records allows t...

Re: Is it possible to add a new Source Type

Just enter it into a new Source record.

It is just like creating a new Address or any of the other Tools > Work with Data lists.
They are not really lists, but simply a summary of the values used.

The standard Descendant Diagram does include Spouses of your bloodline Descendants . It does NOT include Spouses of those Spouses .

Re: From Windows 7 to Windows 10

Can you post the laptop version so we can see the difference.

What about the top borders on other desktop apps? Are they like FH, or like the laptop?

Like Peter, I suspect you customised Windows 10 on laptop (and have forgotten), so need to do the same on desktop.

In the Plugin just restrict the Scope to Census Events (CENS) and filter on Dates.
