Re: FH7 Looks?

Personally I don't really like the new UI's that some software have gone to. I like FH just the way it is. I hope it stays the way it is in version 7.

Re: US or British Navy ++

The Navy Air Force didn't come into being until October 1919 and only in the Pacific Fleet. The Army Air Force also existed at this time, but they of course would not have had the word Navy or Naval on their hats. The US Air Force did not come into being until after WW II ended. If this person is in...

In the picture the man's pea coat is coming across from his left and is buttoning on his right. That is the way US pea coats of that era did button. If indeed it is a wedding ring on his right hand, that would be unusual in the US as we wear the wedding ring on the left hand. There is also a ring on...

Re: Change Any Fact Tag question

Mike,

Yes, this will work very well. Thanks for continuing to explain it to me. I finally understand what you saying.

This will be much easier than adding the Departure and deleting the Emigration.

Thanks!

Re: Change Any Fact Tag question

Actually quite a few do have more than one emigration fact so the named list won't help all that much. I would have to skip a lot of them and then do it manually by adding the Departure fact, adding all the citations, copying over the notes to the Departure fact, and then delete the Emigration fact....

Mike, I didn't realize about the restriction on selecting whole records (by this I assume you mean all records for an individual). My problem is that for any given individual I don't want to change all occurrences of the fact type. For this same reason I can't add the individual to a named list. Unf...

Re: Data entry for pre-1850 USA census

I enter only the HOH in the grid, but in the notes I add something that lists who the counts might be. For example: Free White Persons - Males - 5 thru 9: 1 (Randolph) Free White Persons - Males - 20 thru 29: 1 (William) Free White Persons - Males - 50 thru 59: 1 (Uriah) Free White Persons - Females...

Re: In a shipping list but not a migration.

It isn't a big deal or anything, but I prefer to use an event for things that are really events like this. I don't need the extra value field as I put the 2nd place, the ship (or whatever transportation is used), other people traveling in the group, etc. into the notes as labeled notes.

Re: In a shipping list but not a migration.

Those appear to be attributes rather than events. Is there any way to change an attribute to an event?

Bill

Edit: Never mind... I figured I couldn't change anything in the extended set so I just went ahead and defined my own events in the custom set.

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

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.

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

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
