'Spouses & Children' question

Post by redx593 » 22 Sep 2017 15:07

Hello folks,

I'm using version 5 of FH and have a question regarding the "Spouses & Children" view in the main focus window.

The children of a family are shown in the lower pane of the window. Does anyone know if there is a way of highlighting or marking your particular family member child from his siblings in the list? For example I add the details of the my grandfather and his siblings in the property box and they all appear in the focus window ok, sorted by birth date, but there is nothing to show clearly that my grandfather is the link to his descendants. Is there a way of doing this?

I hope I have explained this clearly enough.

Thanks.

Welcome to the FHUG.

The easiest solution is to upgrade to FH V6.2 which uses a blue arrow in place of the usual focus magnifying glass icon to indicate exactly what you want.

See Knowledge Base > Family Historian Version 6.0 under Enhancements to the Focus Window.

Alternatively, change the Rel. entry for Relationship to Parents to b=birth or d=de facto.
Then a b or d in that column shows your descendant blood line.

"....change the Rel. entry for Relationship to Parents to b=birth...."

Hi Mike,
Unfortunately I've got to stick with V5 because I can't afford to upgrade. So the 'Relationship to Parents' fix you suggested will have to suffice.

Thanks for the help,
Regards,
Barry.
