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.

The GEDCOM Standard includes: The MARR tag could be subordinated with a TYPE tag and EVENT_DESCRIPTOR value of Common Law.

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. I think there may have been understandable confusion between what data are actually stored in the GE...

Re: Sorting Citations based on Surety Assessment

Hi David. In some cases I have two different birth certificates for the same person, issued on different dates and with different amounts of information (in several cases a "short-form" birth certificate issued long after the birth registration, e.g. when starting work). I am quite happy with multip...

Re: Sorting Citations based on Surety Assessment

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. In most cases this is the only Source I would have for a Birth (I certainly cannot afford to buy certificates for every event). In cases where I...

Re: Sorting Citations based on Surety Assessment

I would say that the Birth Certificate and an entry from the GRO Birth Index are two separate and distinct Source s, even if they are for the same Event . 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 ...

Re: Custom queries - Tuition needed

I used the Data Reference Assistant and obtained the following

Code: Select all

%INDI.~SPOU[1]>NATI[1]%
which worked perfectly.
The absence of MARRiage information per se would not matter.
