If you choose the option Show in folder you will then see the downloaded .exe file in Windows Explorer. There you can right-click and select Run as administrator.

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 w...

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 cas...

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've dug a little deeper, and it is quite easy to obtain the OP's original expression using the Data Reference Assistant: %INDI.FAMS[1]>~SPOU[1]>NATI[1]% I used it beside my original expression and got different results. Unless I am mistaken (I hope others will test to confirm) the above, apparently...

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.

Re: Dates Gedcom 5.5

The GEDCOM Standard does not support quarter dates per se and an FH GEDCOM file stores a date such as Q1 1899 as follows:
n DATE BET JAN 1899 AND MAR 1899.

But if the Query results are copied to a spreadsheet or a word-processor table, the relevant cells can be formatted to text-wrap their contents.

Re: Named lists window?

And a Named List can contain Family and Source records, as well as Individual records; Flags can only be on Individual records. It is possible to expand the Named List pane and effectively hide the main Records window pane, and to define additional Columns for the Named List pane. This provides quit...
