Modifying profile to include a website

I thought I would update my profile, but when I try to enter my website address I get the message: 'The field “Website” has an invalid url.' If I copy the address I have entered in the box and paste it into my browser the website opens correctly. I have tried entering the address with the http:/ and...

Australian death certificate -1935

Can anyone tell me if this is the only information that will be available if I obtain a death certificate? I am assuming that this is not the 'official' death certificate. The subject was my great uncle who was a stoker in the Merchant Navy, it appears he ended up 'down and out' in Sydney as an alco...

Re: 'O.S.P.O.VY.M.S Raconia' - What does it mean?

OK, for my two pennyworth, how about 'Ordinary Seaman, Posted Overseas' ? i.e. not elegible for drafting to other work as he would not be in the country.

Who Do You Think You Are - Whitehalls

Didn't know where to postulate this, but it has been nagging at me ever since I watched the programme on Monday. Granted that not all family rumours are true or accurate, but usually I find there is a grain of truth that has been stretched to make the person more important or to cover up a misdeed. ...

Re: FH 6.2.6 FMP Hints

Thanks for your help Mike. IE changed to 11 on plug in but still not working, so I did as you suggested and changed to external browser which is now working. The sequence if anyone else wants to try it is: Tools> Preferences> Internet data matches> Location to display matches> change this to'Externa...

Re: FH 6.2.6 FMP Hints

Thanks for that Mike, I hadn't relised that FH was using IE internally - my miniscule computer knowledge assumed that as I use Firefox, FH was using it too. I have cleared the browsing history on IE and downloaded the plug in suggested, and run it as administrator and re-started the PC - I used the ...

Re: 6.2.6 Released

Sorry if this goes off thread slightly, but I can't log into FMP from FH. It has worked well in the past. I'm using Firefox. FMP on line chat suggested clearing the cache on Firefox to cure the problem. I have cleared the cache but but to no avail. When I try to log into FMP I enter name and passwor...

Individual reports - order of info.

I'm running v5.0.7 on XP. When I get an individual, report the facts are not in order e.g. the details of the 1881 census come before the 1841 census. However when I get an Individaul narrative report the facts are in the correct order.   The facts are in the correct order on the 'individual' - 'fac...

Duplicate family following merge of individuals

Help please, I realised that I had entered the some members of the same family twice.  I merged the duplicated individuals, and the ID numbers changed to the lower number, but on the focus window two marriages have appeared, albeit both with the same ID numbers for husbands wives and children.  How ...

Unmarried Couple or Never Married?

I like the idea of being able to make an individual as having never married, I have just tried to enter this for a maiden aunt and it now shows 'Spouse (-)' which suggests that she did marry but I don't know the name.  It would also be useful if it were possible to enter 'no issue' somewhere, as if ...

Jon Thanks for your help.  I imported my data from PAF as a Gedcom 5.5 file, and when I printed my first individual report the notes appeared under 'Notes on Individual' at the bottom of the report just as I expected. However, somewhere I have done something to cause the imported notes to become unc...

Individual reports - Notes missing! Help please!

Gerry, Thanks for that, unfortunately it didn't work as it was already set up as you suggested.  The problem seems to be in the notes records. When I look at notes the 'N' in the box shows 'no text', and when clicked on, the next box down: 'text' has nothing in it, the box below this is a 'sun' with...
