Re: Family Historian won't load

Hi Mike, thanks for the reminder - version duly updated! I think I updated to 6.2.6 about 7-10 days ago and have been using the programme extensively since without problem until today. With imperfect timing I had a spring clean of the PC before Xmas and got rid of a whole load of downloaded programm...

Re: V6 upgrade: Lost all media links

Hi All,

Thanks to everyone for their guidance. I have now successfully created the correct file structure. Now I just have to set about the task of reconnecting all those lost links :-(

Re: V6 upgrade: Lost all media links

Thank for the info. I'm wondering whether the problem might have been caused by the file structure. Currently my FH file structure for my ancestor photos is as follows: 1) Hard drive 2) My Documents folder 3) 'Family Historian Projects' folder 4) 'Family name' folder 5) 'Family name'.fh_data folder ...

Re: V6 upgrade: Lost all media links

Hi Mike,

my base version is FH 2.1.6 and I'd gone through various upgrades to 5.x before this upgrade to v6.

I didn't specifically check work with External File Links before upgrade and I didn't take a back-up before upgrading (doh!).

Nige.

Hi All, OK, sorrrry but this I feel may be 'stupid question time' !! Could some kind soul please take pity and explain to me the purpose of Flags and Icons in relation to Sources?

Source Images

Thanks for all the help....very useful. I have started using Ancestral Sources and am very impressed by the way it handles the details. A quick question for you though ref the 1911 census: 1) The 1911 census has the detailed page that contains the specific info on the family, whereas the Schedule pa...

Source Images

Hi All, It's been a while since I've done any research, but am now picking up the thread again. I've been a user of FH for a good while now but only ever in its basic functions. However, I would now like to start adding images of the sources (census, birth death, baptism records etc) into the progra...

General research

I sometimes complete one-name-searches from the GRO records for future reference and would like to be able to record such generic surname information within FH, but can't seem to find any area suitable for its recording. Can anyone offer any advice, as if not I'll post it to the Wish List as an idea...

Things To Do

Hi Folks, I have been looking but can't seem to find any functionality that acts as a 'Things To Do' (TTD) list. You can obviously enter TTD's against the individuals, but once you get a big tree its difficult to remember where these are. So, is anyone aware of anything within FH that allows TTD to ...
