Re: Web Search Page is Blank

Sorry for my inadvertent transgression by posting on the wrong site. I'd done everything else that had been suggested but your advice on running the plug-in was spot on. It was set to "9" and so I changed it to "11" and, hey presto, all is now OK. One minute to download and install and one minute to...

Web Search Page is Blank

Until about a fortnight ago, clicking on a green matches circle in focus window opened a new web search window that was populated with brief outlines of each match found on FindMyPast. Since then, the web search page is totally blank. However, if I click on cog-wheel (to right of link web address) a...

Re: Ancestry .ged import fails

Wow, you almost answered my query before I sent it! Very impressive service for which much thanks - especially as you had identified the cause of my problem in that I had, indeed used the Family Historian option. All is now sweetness and light; simple when one knows how! :) On the File > Import/Expo...

Ancestry .ged import fails

I have used the Export Gedcom File plugin to try to transfer my FH family tree to Ancestry. However, no matter what I do, the upload of the resultant file from the Export folder into Ancestry fails with the message : "Error: The file you have specified (Stepney ANC UTF8.ged) does not appear to be a ...

Find Duplicate Individuals (All Relations)

Hi Mike On re-reading, your instructions are pretty clear but my sin was not paying enough attention to the paragraph in the Names Assessment page, 'If the score reaches a threshold of 6 points, then the person’s key Events are also assessed'.  I'm afraid I concentrated on  'Name' and overlooked the...

Find Duplicate Individuals (All Relations)

Thanks Mike. Your speed of response and its content were very impressive. I had read the Help & Advice page but had not fully grasped what was being said.  On your advice, I used the Enable Diagnostics Mode and all became clear; my 27 points came from my anticipated 13 points Individual Name plus 10...

Find Duplicate Individuals (All Relations)

I should have added in my post a few minutes ago that there are several other matches where similar Individual 'higher scoring' discrepancies appear to occur - and where they are not abated to a maximum Individual score of 20.[llama-banana]

Find Duplicate Individuals (All Relations)

Many thanks. This is an excellent piece of work which has helped me find and resolve a few duplicates with the minimum of fuss and effort. There is though something I don't understand about the scoring....and I'm quite content to be told I've overlooked the obvious, but here goes with my puzzle: I h...

Notes and Occupations Problems (v4.0.2)

Wow Jane, What a speedy reply - and before 7am! I can see why you get all the rave reviews on the posts - to which i unreservedly now add mine. It's amazing what a night's sleep can do as I'd sorted a few things out for myself and sort of reached the same coclusions that you've set out. The change i...

Notes and Occupations Problems (v4.0.2)

For me as a relatively new FH user, all has been going well until this evening. I've now got problems with notes that have begun to attach themselves to the summary of the identified individual in the focus window. Previously, I've been able to insert a general note and it has not appear here. Any i...
