Converting Sources: Method 2 to Method 1

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...

Keeping preferences and plugins in sync

I have been keeping my project files nicely in sync on Google Drive for some long time which is useful when swapping from desktop to laptop. It works flawlessly unless I shut my laptop cover and forget to close FH properly then open a new session on the desktop a day or two later. Nothing is usually...

Individual details in fact query

The solution in this post 6664|Individual details in fact query did not work for me in V6. 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...

Re: New search for the Forums

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

Re: Recording DNA links

I have created a simple custom attribute and a custom query.

I note that the fact has a field to hold a website {%FACT._WEB[1]%} but how do I make this field visible to enter data in the property box?

Recording DNA links

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...

Re: Query for multiple fact types

Thanks I will give the plug in a try. I have merged some individuals from another file and a few have multiple facts the same e.g births with different sources but I need to review as some should be combined or transferred to a christening. I will look out for Mike's "Row" tip too. Thanks ...

Query for multiple fact types

Some of my individuals have multiple facts of the same type. How could I identify them by modifying say the All Facts Standard Query by adding an additional column?

I only want to show those individuals with multiple facts of the same type.

Thanks,

Changing a source citation

There is a useful plugin " Replace Selected Source Citations " for changing citations. However I only want to change the citation for a subset of all the citations for a particular source. The subset is based on the Fact type (e.g. Birth, Marriage, Death). Is a small modification to the pl...

Re: Family Historian

There is a description of how Cameyo does this here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cameyo . When you run the app the first time it creates an extra folder on the USB with a set of system files and folders. The next time you run the app it starts much faster, in fact not much slower than a desktop ins...

Re: Family Historian

I too had a need for a USB version to use away from home.

Cameyo recommends using a virtual machine anyway. Steps are: 1. Install Oracle VM, good...

Re: Witness roles

This might be a useful tip.

I have found it useful to be able to edit Witness Roles in FH V6 after having previously added the witness in AS. So typically I might add as 'Name Only' and then revised it to an individual in the database when more information comes to light.
