Re: Certificates price rise

From Peter Calver's (LostCousins) newsletter 25/12/2018: "These increases might sound exploitative in an era of low inflation, but you might be surprised to learn that the last change in certificate prices was in 2010, since when prices generally have gone up by well over 20% - and during the s...

Re: RELIABILITY settings

Mike, QUAY (Assessment) and _QUAL are different things. If you only use QUAY, you are basing your assessment on whether the information you're relying on in the source is primary or secondary or something that you're not sure about at all... it says nothing about whether you worked from a dodgy phot...

Re: RELIABILITY settings

Mike, happy to start a new plugin discussion, but I would like to make the point that using the Citation Assessments will deliver unpredictable results in some cases -- if there are multiple sources cited, working out how to "massage" each one to get the result wanted is bad practice as we...

Re: RELIABILITY settings

Jjensen, it should (if what Mike and I are discussing can be implemented) be possible to allow you to do the edit within FH (by adding specific text in the Note associated with the fact) and then export it to Gigatrees in the format Gigatrees expects (using the Export Gedcom plugin) -- that would el...

Re: RELIABILITY settings

Yes, but it's a very poor fallback, Mike -- it sacrifices all the sophistication of the Analysis Process. QUAL only allows you (for example) to mark something as Primary or Secondary, not Original or Transcript or Copy or Derivative (with all the possibilities for error that moving further away form...

Re: Two burial entries

I would create a second source (complete with image and transcription) using FH -- it is a separate document, after all -- and cite it for the existing burial fact and update the fact with any relevant extra details (and highlighting any contradictions if any and which version you accept).

Re: RELIABILITY settings

Mike, relying only on QUAY misses out a whole chunk of the Evidence Analysis process (all the Source Category stuff). You might want to look at the Evidence Assessment Process map that I referenced upstream. Manual editing of the fact note (and ideally the source note to add the Source Category stuf...

Re: RELIABILITY settings

Yes, manual editing would not realistic. I'm hoping Mike might have a good idea -- maybe a bit like Sort Dates and handle them on the export with special Gigatrees output Mike? (Don't worry ir you don't understand this Jjensen -- all will become clearer if it's a viable way forward).

Re: RELIABILITY settings

Mike, The Gigatree reliability assessment relies not just on Source Quality (QUAY) but also a 2 source categories associate with the source (custom fields); it can be overridden by assigning a _PROOF tag to the fact. It sounds as if Jjensen wants to set that _PROOF value to do all the assessment man...

Re: Backup File Size

What format are you saving your FH file in, and has it changed recently? UTF8 versus UTF16 can make a huge difference.... (which is bigger depends on the languages most used in your file).
