Re: Quarter Format

Yes, I second that advice. Even if you use a plain text editor, as your earlier comment about CHR & BAPM alluded, it is all too easy to corrupt the Gedcom file if not extremely careful and knowledgeable. BTW: There are Plugins to make that kind of CHR to BAPM fact tag change safely, and other se...

So attached is Clean Living Persons Plugin Version 1.2.4 Date 21 Feb 2017 (note the temporary new name). If any of the Living Names: options are chosen e...

Re: creating a file for Ancestry with no facts for living individuals

You could use File > File Statistics on the Gedcom before you run the Export Gedcom File Plugin.
You can run FH on the Export Gedcom File exported Gedcom with some caveats.
Switch off Auto-Save and do NOT use Save, not even when you Close, then the Gedcom should stay intact.

Re: Marriage Witness Info Missing

Whether you need to change either database is your decision ~ FH won't mind what you do. It is simply a matter of whether you want to make the two databases consistently the same, and if so, which of two formats do you want to use into the future for all such BMD Witnesses entered via AS . Again tha...

Re: creating a file for Ancestry with no facts for living individuals

If all your Living people have the Living Flag initially then add that Flag to the Query Columns.
Then when you sort & select, include the Living Flag Column in the sort & select process so only those Name Sources are deleted.

For counting records use File > Statistics.

Re: creating a file for Ancestry with no facts for living individuals

The Plugin script does delete all unused Sources and it does with my test on the Family Historian Sample Project . But it is a moot point as the subsequent Split Tree Helper step does Delete Source Records left with no links to them . Are you saying some Sources are left with 0 Citations ? The Queri...

Re: Quarter Format

Ralph, after installing the Plugin you need to Run it so it can make the necessary changes.

Use Tools > Plugins, select the Fix Date Fields Plugin and click Run button.

See Knowledge Base > About Family Historian Plugins for further details.

Re: Marriage Witness Info Missing

It sounds like you may be talking about an Individual custom Marriage Witness fact, as opposed a Family record Marriage event Witness . I believe either can be created by Ancestral Sources depending on the options chosen and how long ago. The Marriage event Witness option was only added after FH V6 ...

Re: Winzip

Victor, since you do not subscribe to WinZip, then uninstall it and its icon association with ZIP files will be removed.

If this is your only use of ZIP files, then you do not need 7-Zip either.
