Downloading a Custom Query

Introduction

How do I download a Custom Query?

The Downloads and Links have a large collection of Custom Queries created by Family Historian users. Researchers have found the Related How and Census - The Missing Years - 1911 queries of particular value.

To download a specific Query click on the Query of interest and then follow the Download link. You will be asked if you want to open or save the file. Click on Save and you will be presented with the Save As menu.

On Version 2.1 and Below

Browse through your file list and select the Family Historian Program Data Folder\Queries\Custom folder. Then press Save and the Query will automatically be saved in your custom queries folder.

You can go back to the custom queries folder and rename the query if you like. When you next open Family Historian the Query will be found by clicking on View > Custom Queries in the toolbar at the top of the page.

In Version 2.2 and Above

Later versions of FH have an automatic installer built in, so you can simply choose Open with Family Historian and it will be installed into the correct folder.
