Re: Citations from Legacy are not shown in FH

If you remember, I raised a CP support ticket which identifies discrepancies between direct import and GEDCOM import from Legacy for not just the Citation-specific details but also the omission of Name Citations entirely and the omission of Alternate Names. CP just responded saying: "Thank you ...

Re: Query: Add if Descendant of

The Help for IsDescendant says it returns TRUE if the 1st is the descendant of the 2nd. =IsDescendant( A, B ) is true if A is the descendant of B. I know the example in the Help is misleading. i.e. If the record with Record Id 897 is the descendant of %INDI% current record. So if %INDI% is the fathe...

Ok, it was not clear that you were referring to two different index pages in the two postings.

Re: All media files listed twice

OK, since those duplicate Media records have no Links they are completely isolated from all the other data. Therefore, they are invisible from your main project data and that probably explains why the website displays no anomalies. To delete all the duplicates, open the Records Window on the Media t...

Re: All media files listed twice

It is not immediately obvious to me how that could have happened! Are you adding the same Media File but not using Link to Existing Media Record on subsequent additions? Don't make any changes for the moment and let us just examine the evidence. Does the Updated date-time stamp give any clues as to ...

Re: Citing Marriage Banns

The OP mentioned "the bans for the groom (principal 1) and the bans for the bride (principal 2)" as two events. So presumably there was some evidence to suggest only one fiancee was involved at each event. The default Marriage Banns sentence says: "{couple} had marriage banns publishe...

Re: Merging a large gedcom file into a large project

The first question I have to ask is where did that 'additional GEDCOM' come from? Have you carefully reviewed, cleaned & validated its data so that FH is entirely happy with it? What is the overlap between the 95K and 15K individuals who are expected duplicates? Can the 15K be split into separat...

Re: Citing Marriage Banns

But that would not allow the two parishes to be recorded in the Place and Address fields. Also, if they were different dates as well then two events are needed anyway. Even though the Banns were read in different parishes, and possibly on different dates, they 'involve' both the bride and the groom,...

Re: Unable to re-order facts

The items are out of order datewise as shown on the All tab which is what matters. The Facts tab is just a sorted display, not the actual data order. When you use its up/down arrows it is the All tab data that is being moved. The facts displayed come from many different records: Spouse Family, Paren...

Re: Unable to re-order facts

Obviously, I cannot explain how the two events became separated by the Death event. I suspect it may be caused by the way AS edits the GEDCOM file when adding facts. However, the random database order of the facts confuses FH when trying to move facts up/down in the Facts tab because it is actually ...

Re: New Page - Writing Plugins Compatible with Mac/Linux

Perhaps How to Add Content to the Knowledge Base under Glossary Entries needs to explain that there are 'undocumented quirks' and that "If you use a term or phrase that is in the Glossary, it will be highlighted the first time it occurs on the page." does not always happen.

But if you did use a Sort Date then it would resolve the problem. That is what we are both saying. However, the All tab explains the issue, which shows the facts as recorded in the underlying GEDCOM/database. They are in a random order. The two facts dated 7 Apr 1861 are separated by a Death event w...

In the example you give all the sources essentially corroborate 1 Aug 1897. I would not be concerned about the Marriage Certificate suggesting one year later.
