Knowledge Base Home
Welcome to the FHUG Knowledge Base, covering everything from simple how to's and getting started guides to research and recording suggestions.
Follow the menu on the left to the main sections to see what we have available. There is a selection of How To Guides including Family Historian and of course Nick Walker's Ancestral Sources, both of which now have many video tutorials, plus a comprehensive set of Downloads and Links provided by members.
Following the release of Family Historian Version 5 the Knowledge Base now contains a whole new section on Family Historian Plugins, which is well worth investigating as it contains lots of hints, tips, and sample code for them.
If what you are looking for is not obvious in the main sections, then try the Search box. Simply enter a few keywords from your topic, feature, or message into the box and click Search. Much the same options work as for a Google Search, such as prefixing a keyword with a minus sign will exclude it, and enclosing keywords in "quotes" will search just for that phrase. See also the Google Site Search advice in Site Searches.
Alternatively, try the Glossary of Terms or Frequently Asked Questions or Knowledge Base Index. Remember that any text highlighted like this is a hyperlink to that topic, and to return to a previous topic use the TRACE: at the top of the page.
