Re: Progenitor, Finding

I think you need to define precisely what you mean by "progenitor". One definition is "an ancestor or parent". But ancestor of who? File root or anyone else? Perhaps you mean anyone who has children. Perhaps you mean earliest progenitors who themselves have no ancestors. There ar...

Re: Map Life Facts question regarding use of brackets

Bill, that is a very good question, and I was looking for the answer too. The Plugin is designed to detect search strings that are entirely white space and punctuation characters (such as [[ and ]] ). For those, it automatically forces Part Words search mode, because they are NOT words. This is beca...

Re: Second spouse printing before first spouse on Narrative Reprt

Try and remember how long you took to become familiar with FTM and devote that much time to FH starting with the features for newcomers. It is a common mistake for new users to plunge in and start using FH extensively only to later wish they had spent a bit longer understanding its features and have...

Re: Map Life Facts question regarding use of brackets

Some users employ the [[ ... ]] format in Address fields so that part is automatically excluded in Reports to avoid duplication with Place field contents. The Plugin currently excludes any part enclosed in " string quotes " . So this seems to work which combines the two mechanisms: Provide...

Re: Address / Place in Maps

The Abbey plots in my screenshots are entirely automatically geocoded by the Plugin, and automatically updated into the FH Map Window. I was simply pointing out that it can be nudged in the Plugin in a similar way that it can be dragged in the FH Map Window, and either will update the other.

Re: Second spouse printing before first spouse on Narrative Reprt

Welcome to the FHUG George. Those spouses are probably not in date order in the database. You say they appear OK in Focus Window but I suspect they are in reverse order there too. The simplest solution to correct that and other similar chronological errors is to use Tools > Re-order Out-of-Sequence ...

Re: hebrew

Yes, the FH database is a Gedcom text file.
But the Hebrew Name is only saved once in that file.
So that does not explain why that solitary Name appears both forwards and backwards in different places of the same Report.

Re: Set Individual as Deceased

To complete the picture, it is a part of the standard Gedcom specification that demands the Y on any Event tag (not just Death ) that has no other subsidiary details. It simply confirms that the otherwise empty Event should not be purged. It does not apply to Events with subsidiary details. Since it...

Re: Set Individual as Deceased

The Gedcom standard is not flawed, because as I said it does NOT specify Flags at all. If the Living flag were tri-state then it would have to be saved in the Gedcom as tri-state, otherwise when you next open the Project the tri-state value will have been reduced to two-state, because the Gedcom is ...

Glad that is sorted out Paul.
I did mention the suffix in my last reply on Saturday, and suggested you looked in the project with the suffix such as (1) or (2) matching the New Project Name given in the dialogue.
