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.

Re: How to add a line into Diagram boxes

Your Text Scheme can have a Custom Item consisting of m-dashes (————), which you can type with the sequence Alt+0151; this can be aligned and coloured by the usual options, but the length will be fixed.

As you can see in the All Individuals Query, the column named "Relationship to Root" uses the Function =Relationship(), not a Data Reference.

Re: Set Individual as Deceased

For any Record in the GEDCOM file a Flag can only be present or absent. A Record where the Flag is present will have a tick in the box. A Record where the Flag is absent will have no tick in the box.

Hi David.

Sorry I wasn't clear earlier. Like many others, I believe, I use "Method 2" for BMD Index entries and record the Event-specific details in the FH Citation.

Re: Sorting Citations based on Surety Assessment

For some Individual Birth Events you may have a Birth Certificate, for others you may have only a Birth Index entry, and for others you may have ...
