Backtracing Links

Hello, A newbie question. I've migrated to FH from Legacy Family Tree and there Notes are an attribute of an Individual and not an independent entity that can be linked to. In Legacy I've made quite a lot of Research Notes like "Verify his birth in Church Records". As these notes in Legacy are an at...

Re: A question on Sources

Thank you, Jane and David, for your very detailed and comprehensive explanations. I now know what to consider when making my choices on what to register where. I’ll experiment with the different fact and record types and work out what suits me best.

Re: A question on Sources

I’ve been doing genealogy for about twenty years. In the beginning, when records became available online there were some instability, but at least for the last five years or so, I haven’t observed any changing URL’s for existing records. Of course, I do agree with you that private copies of all reco...

Re: A question on Sources

I see your point regarding the splitter approach with census, and any other sources pertain to more then one individual. I'm not sure how this is handled in the UK or US, but in DK all public records (church record, census, probates, deeds, land records, etc.) are all managed and digitized by the Da...

Re: A question on Sources

I agree, both approaches can come into play, depending on the situation. In regards to Census records, my idea at the moment is to define a 'lumper' source representing the entire census for location in question. I'm Danish national, and our census are organised as County | Shire | Parish, so the Ti...

Re: A question on Sources

Thanks all for you answers Mike, Adrian and Ron. It was all very helpful. I can't say I'm completely decided on wich approach I'll take, but at least I now know the pros & cons with the two principal approaches, i.e. 'splitter' and 'lumper'. The Ancestral Sources plugin also sounds useful. Unfortuna...

A question on Sources

Hello, I'm working with a trail version of FH 6 (until now I've been using Legacy Family Tree). In general I really like FH compared to LFT. FH is mush more intuitive and supports my workflows much better, i.e. quicker and easier to work with. However, I struggeling a bit with Sources, and find i ha...

Import non-English characters

Hi Jane,

Thanks for your answer. The lack of Unicode support is rather disappointing and unexpected of a upcoming and awarded product like FH, and effectively blocks its use in most of the world, i.e. outside native English speaking countries. But that your choise ....
