Re: Name Suffixes in Records Window

How do you have these names defined?

Do you by any chance have the "jr" in the name field rather than in the suffix field?

For example:

Thomas jr /Howes/
Thomas /Howes/ jr

Re: Note field Citations disallowed in 5.5.1

Lorna, Thanks for the reply. OK... I see how that works. I'd never paid attention to that arrow because with local notes it is grayed out. I sure prefer local notes to shared notes. Everything is much more visible when you can see it property box and source pane. Also, with local notes everything sh...

Re: Note field Citations disallowed in 5.5.1

I did go back and read through the thread and saw these. I guess the first time through I was just so confused that it didn't sink in. Thinks for summarizing the options. I understood from reading through this thread again that citations on shared notes are OK. I have never used shared notes before....

Re: Note field Citations disallowed in 5.5.1

Wow... I use this all the time. I must have thousands of notes with citations.

If you can't have citations on this type of note, how are you supposed to document where the info comes from?

Re: Place Details - Where can I put them?

I have considered something like this however I have thousands of places that would require me to manually edit them. Before I do that, can you share how all of this prints out in the reports? I am assuming you somehow combine the address and place for your output? Mike beat me to it. As he explain...

Re: Place Details - Where can I put them?

There are many discussions on the forum on how to do this. I personally put the address and "name" of the address into the address field and reserve only the city and higher level items into the place field. In the address field I would put the name of the building, company, church, cemetery, etc. f...

Re: How to add Nicknames & Suffix to the names in this view

That field on the Individuals tab can not be changed as far as I know. What I did was add a new column which I called Full Name . I defined it as INDI.NAME:ADORNED_FULL . This column shows any prefix or suffix with the name. It does not show nicknames. I'm not sure if that is possible. Bill

Re: Highlight complete selected row in Records Window

Just my two cents... I would really love to have something to make it easier to scroll right and left and not lose track of the row I am interested in. Highlighting of the entire row would be a very useful thing to have. I have often wished for this. Locking of the first column might be helpful, but...

Select your cousin. Then use the menu command Add > Parent... and then select Yes on the pop up window that says that your cousin already has parents so that it will add one of the adopted parents. Fill in the details. If desired you can mark your cousin as adopted by the new parents by selecting th...

Lynn, I just had a thought. If you go to Tools > Preferences > Map Window > Preferred Map Type, what is yours set to? I have always had problems with using "OSM Roads". It can't seem to even bring up a map for most places I plot. I use "OpenStreeMap". Not sure this would have anything to do with the...

Re: Mapping places from new, large TMG project

Lynn, I also live in the US so I thought I'd give it a try and see if it was still working for me (it always has in the past). I created a place called Warwick, Rhode Island, USA and tried to plot it. It worked just fine. So it doesn't look like the problem has anything to do with being in the US. I...

Re: Double Dates Format Quoted & Not Recognized?

USMC7312,

I believe for old style/new style dates you have to use two digits after the "/".

In your example, try using 12 Feb 1798/99.

The format of the name in the focus window can not be modified. The best you can do is display the adorned name in the property box caption.

Re: Census entry if away from home

That is correct. For that particular census the child was not with the parents so would not be connected to the parents by the census record. They would still be connected via whatever other facts you might have such as birth or baptism records, etc. The census is only a record of who was at a given...

I agree with Mike. I also enter the census for the individual exactly as it shows on the census form. If I feel that I need to, I enter a note on the individual's census record pointing to the information for the census record of the family of that person. Sometimes I also add a note to the census r...

Have you tried deleting the Family Historian User Group cookies and then refreshing the page and signing in? I have had several websites which have had problems like this that were resolved by deleting the cookies for that site. I think somehow the cookies were getting corrupted.
