Re: How to split or copy an individual

Thee is a Plugin called Clone Any Record (which I wrote over 5 years ago); it should be suitable for this purpose. Obviously take a backup first in case anything goes wrong.

Re: Is there a ready made way?

Use Ctrl-click to select the two Individuals in the Records window and then use How Related… on the Tools menu. Then you can click on Display Graphically.

Re: Plugin Help

The original is clearer if posted as CODE:

Code: Select all

str=string.gsub(str,'"','')
In other words:
2nd parameter is two primes ' enclosing one string quote " i.e. '"'
3rd parameter is just two primes ' i.e. ''

Re: Death certificate

Thus the Informant is NOT a Witness to the Birth/Death itself (unlike a Marriage Witness ). Of course I agree with the above, but there may need to be a distinction between the possibly dozens of people who witness the marriage ceremony itself, and the (usually) two Witnesses who sign the marriage ...

Re: Brand newbie - rename imported Gedcom

The Project Window… (via the File menu) has on option on the More Tasks… button to Rename Project…. This is important because, as well as the GEDCOM file itself, the associated folders (that contain media files, etc.) must have exactly corresponding names.

Re: How can I map individuals from a Named List?

As I said earlier, you can select one or more Individuals in your Result Set, e.g. by dragging with mouse, and then click on Map Places for Selected Individuals.

Re: How can I map individuals from a Named List?

You can select any number of Individuals from the Records Window or from a Query Result Set or from a Named List (of Individuals) and then click on Map Places for Selected Individuals. I don't think there is any way to map Family Records directly.

Re: Family Media Doesn't Show Up in Narrative Reports

Another possibility, which avoids the use of Witnesses, would be to use a Family Custom Attribute such as Co-residence from the Kinsfolk Fact Set. See Knowledge Base > Fact Set ~ Kinsfolk Facts & Sources.

Re: Gedcom Export Without Notes and Sources

The Split Tree Helper… on the File menu has an option to "Delete all note fields within records". I presume you've already used the Export option to exclude Note Records.

On the Facts tab of the Individual Property Box you can use Add Fact to add the Marriage Event and can then add a Source for it.

Re: Given name used

Have you seen what's in the FH Help for "Given Name Used"? “Given Name Used” is for cases where the name a person was known by was one of their names, but not the first. For example, even before she was baptised, her parents may always have intended that Jean Clare Smith should be called “Clare” say...

Perhaps because Family Search has 7 June 1841? The National Archives and Genuki both have 06 June 1841.
