Re: Using FH Family Trees on Independent Website

Thank you. Very interesting. It looks that it does exactly what I want to achieve. Do you use a PDF "handler" within Wordpress? We are looking at installing https://en-gb.wordpress.org/plugins/pdf-embedder/ .

Coincidence that your example is just down the road from me at Biggleswade.

Using FH Family Trees on Independent Website

I have a one-place history study of Steeple Morden, Cambridgeshire, which involves 500+ families and I use FH to record data for people and generate diagrams, notably “standard” family trees. I want to use the trees, some are very large especially width, on my WordPress based website, www.steeplemor...

Recording Late Adoption

I have a child born in 1890, whose birth and baptism were registered in the normal way with details of father and mother, including surname. However, from birth the child was brought up by an uncle and aunt who had a different surname, although the child retained her own family surname in census rec...

Re: Relations by Marriage

Many thanks Mike for your guidance. I have tried a little play around with creating a mini tree and will see how well it fits with the main tree.

I really appreciate the help I receive on this forum.

Relations by Marriage

With the various family diagrams, the second or third or more spouses are displayed for members of the specified family. So if my family is Pye, anybody born a Pye, has all their spouses displayed. However, if a "stranger" marries a Pye and then has subsequent marriages, those subsequent marriages a...

Re: All Relatives Diagram

Thanks for that Lorna. Surely, though as Florence Knight has no ancestors on the tree, why move the whole family and descendants to the right? Even if she did have ancestors they would fit on the left? The Knight and Crockford families would still meet in the "middle", albeit on the left of the tree...

Re: All Relatives Diagram

OK, I understand why that small part of the tree might be like that, but why does John Turner Crockford not stay on the left of the whole tree, where there is plenty of room for him and wives and families?

Why does he shoot "randomly" across to the right?

Re: All Relatives Diagram

Yes, literally. Re-ordering complete ) etc............

Tried the wife default and layout options. Reckon I am still default.

Not aware I have hidden any boxes, but the attached may suggest otherwise?

Re: All Relatives Diagram

Thanks for the replies. I created the all relatives diagram by focusing on the root person and then clicking on all relatives button. The diagram is fine in that everybody is there, except for the strange layout. I tried all the sequencing, check for order, spouse in order etc that I could think of,...

All Relatives Diagram

This is probably so basic and obvious, but why does the eldest child in a family show correctly on the line of siblings on the left of the tree, but then is taken across to the far right of the tree to display with his wives and children, in the process cutting across the descent lines for children ...

Free Upgrade

Thanks Peter, I appreciate that. So can I 'load' all the CMB from the registers of a particular parish and then allocate the indviduals to trees later?

Free Upgrade

My free upgrade has arrived. Appears to have installed OK. Now I need to play and then I can praise/moan like everyone else. Never realised you had to be a computer programmer to trace your family tree. I started in the old days, with paper and pencil, often locked in churches etc to do my transcrib...

Upgrade confusion

I wonder if the confusion goes beyond that? I bought V3 with the free upgrade as a download via the Calico Pie website. I had a V4 newsletter from Calico Pie, which seemed to contain nothing relevant to me. Indeed if I had followed some of the advice about upgrading I think I would have screwed up. ...

Family Reconstitution using FH

Thanks, Jane. Certainly there are a lot of interconnections, so I will go the 1 file route. Very timely advice.
Have you done something similar for a Dorset parish? Or have a lot of Dorset ancestors?
I guess for my own family a file per surname will work best?

Family Reconstitution using FH

After 30+ years of researching, about to take the plunge and computerise. Trialling Family Historian and it looks to be my preferred choice, because of flexibility and customisation. In addition, to my own families I have vast records on about 300 families connected with Steeple Morden, Cambridgeshi...
