How To Guides:
Flags are a feature of Family Historian that allow Individual records to be marked. You can test for the presence of a Flag in a Query, or Record Window Column, or Diagram Text Scheme, or Diagram Box Condition, etc.
Ancestral Sources allows a Flag to be assigned to any non-Census Source Type.
Using Flags and Icons explains the simplicity and benefits of testing for any non-Census Source Type using a simple Expression instead of a Flag, and from Family Historian Version 4 onwards, this also applies to a Diagram Box Condition to set an Icon. Thus the ability to assign a Flag to a non-Census Source Type is now somewhat redundant.
For Census Flags see the Census Flag & Date Tools tutorial later.
Open Ancestral Sources and ensure the Family Historian Sample Project or the Sample.ged file opens by default. If not then repeat the Ancestral Sources Tutorial ~ Configure Initial Settings.
Use the menubar option Tools > Flag Assignment.
Ensure the Source Type is Baptism and in the Flag Name field type in Baptism.
Click the Save button and then the Close button.
Henceforth, whenever a Baptism Source is saved to Family Historian a Baptism Flag will be assigned to the Individual Record of the key person.
All other non-Census Source Types will work in the same way, except that for a Marriage Source both spouses will have the Flag assigned.
To remove the setting, use the menubar option Tools > Flag Assignment again.
Ensure the Source Type is Baptism and set Flag Name to Baptism from the list.
Click the Delete button, OK the warning to remove the setting, and then click the Close button.
Close Ancestral Sources by using the File > Exit option.
If Baptism Flags need to be added or cleared for all existing Individuals with Baptism Events, then use Family Historian as follows:
This Query can be re-used for other Flags by updating the Rows Filter to use another Event.
An alternative way to clear a Flag is as follows:
