Re: Rearrange Address and Place Parts Plugin - usage

Mike, I have done a quick test on this and it seems to work as expected.

I had previously written a custom query to list the Address and Place parts in a similar fashion so that I could select them for the Plugin.

Thanks,

Graham

Re: Rearrange Address and Place Parts Plugin - usage

Mike, the plugin was working, but I am now getting an error:

Other plugins seem to work.

Re: Rearrange Address and Place Parts Plugin - usage

Mike, I have tested this both for Address part shifting to Place and Place part copy to Address. It works as I would hope and the sort is fine for me too.

Thanks,

Re: Rearrange Address and Place Parts Plugin - usage

Yes, I did see the green Result Set link but that was one that did not work for me.

Because it was Address records I wanted to move to Place I would have preferred an optional sort on Address, accepting as you say, that would not be so good for the Places.

Re: Rearrange Address and Place Parts Plugin - usage

Thanks Helen.

I tried to access the help pages in the plugin but the link to this page does not work from "Help and Advice". In fact, the only page that can be accessed is "Input Filter".

Rearrange Address and Place Parts Plugin - usage

When I use the Rearrange Address and Place Parts Plugin for a selected Address/Place combination I get a spurious entry added of the format {A0}, {A1} to the new places. That is for all the places that share the same place record not just the one selected in the Input Filter. I am trying to move a s...

Thank you. That works well for me and you have added the maiden name too of course. If you have not done so already it should go into the Plugin Store.

e.g.

Re: Columnised Place report

Yes, I have varying numbers of parts. A country, for example, is position 2, 3 or 4.

The issue with "Work with Data" - "Places" is I cannot get that selection into the Plugin.

Columnised Place report

To use the Rearrange Address and Place Parts plugin it seems first I need to be able to select some of the places. Ideally, I would like to run a query to separate the place elements (i.e. the comma-separated parts) in a columnar report that can be sorted to group the misaligned places. Does that qu...

Re: FTAnalyzer information

That's better. They import now, but it has highlighted I still need to clean up some of my locations!

The nice thing with FT Analyser is that you can map against a background of the National Library of Scotland's historical mapping.

Thanks.

Re: FTAnalyzer information

I have used the Export Gedcom Plugin to create a Gedcom for FT Analyzer . It imports OK but reports that none of my locations have Lat/Long coordinates. However, if I check FH my locations do have coordinates. Are the locations not correctly formatted for FTA? Just to confirm, I checked the Gedcom f...

What do you do with a brick wall?

Wondering how others tackle brick walls in FH ? No doubt many of us get to a point where we just cannot identify someones' parents. What do you do? Flag it on your to-do list? Keep researching? Stop!? Sometimes I find that I can actually look over the brick wall. What I mean is, that there are a num...

My specific case is that I have some census sources that have been created using Method 2 ("lumped") that I had created in a previous program that I used (Genbox), and before I knew better. I have ignored them for a long time, but would now really like to tidy them up. The original sources...

Rather than: =GetField(FactOwner(%FACT%,1,MALES_FIRST),'%INDI.BIRT[1].DATE%') these two entries added to the Columns section both worked a charm Birth date: =FieldText(FactOwner(%FACT%,1,MALES_FIRST),'INDI.BIR...

When there are multiple results from the same thread would they be better grouped? Or a "group by thread option"?

My apologies if this question has been asked a different way! I am interested how other FH users handle their research following a DNA test. Whichever provider you use you will typically spend some time exploring matches to other researchers, finding common ancestors on their trees held elsewhere. H...
