Re: Query: Age at birth of last child

Thanks, Mike.

I wanted to get a histogram from my data to give me the profile of age at the birth of the last child. It just might help me clarify the probable mother of a child with no recorded birth event.

Query: Age at birth of last child

There is a custom query to show the age at the birth of the first child of a parent. Query:Individual ~ Age at Birth of First Child

How do I adapt it to show the age at the birth of the last child of a family?

Thanks.

Re: Focus Window and Property Box

Thanks for all your suggestions. They all seem viable workarounds. Do you think this should be an enhancement request for a future release? Having multiple undocked windows would make it more in line with other software.

Focus Window and Property Box

Sometimes when investigating relationships I find myself endlessly switching between the Focus Window and the Records Window, This would be greatly reduced if two copies of the Focus Window could be viewed at the same time. You can already do this between single copies of the Focus and Records windo...

Re: Wills, Executors and Beneficiaries

So can you include names of people that are linked as witnesses in a will (executors, trustees, beneficiaries etc) in the Property Box? I have had a look at trying to find the appropriate entry in the Data Reference Assistant for a custom item, but without success.

Wills, Executors and Beneficiaries

We have quite a large number of posts on this topic already, but I could not quite find the answer to my dilemma. I have started to look at filling out the details on the wills I have in my database. Previously I had only recorded dates of the will and a separate probate event. It seems I have a cho...

Re: Families with Flexible CSV Importer

After some more testing and trying different column headings and looking at the code, I have established a method that gets the marriage ages of both husband and wife attached to the event. I have also successfully entered a second marriage for one of the parties. Here is a summary of my findings: A...

Re: Families with Flexible CSV Importer

It was the syntax for the spouse that was missing

PF.REFN

If I want to add ages at marriage and use

P_S.MARR.Age:P

It creates duplicate marriage facts. How do I prevent that happening?

Thanks,

Families with Flexible CSV Importer

I am trying to use the Flexible CSV Importer plugin. I am having difficulty getting the plugin to recognise my family links and marriage information. I have looked at the notes in the plugin itself and tried several variations without success. These are my current CSV headings: REFN,P.NAME.GIVEN,P.N...

Re: Birth Registration and Mother's Parents names

This is a related issue when working with this type of record. Often the location of the chapel where this event occurred is someway from the place of residence. That's fine at first sight as the place of Residence is captured for the event but a Birth is incorrectly recorded at the chapel. So how d...

Birth Registration and Mother's Parents names

Some nonconformist registers of births include details the maternal grandparents in the register. This is of course really helpful and often this information was recorded well before civil registration in 1837. I am using AS so you could argue I should post my question there... So how to set up asso...

I would like to be able to colour code the boxes in a descendant diagram when a particular place occurs in a specific census year. %INDI.CENS[year=1841]% identifies the year. The place element is in the second part of the place, but I cannot work out how to search for it and combine with the express...

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.

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.

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".

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.
