A screenshot of the structure of files and folders in My Documents/Family Historian Projects will help.

Re: GRO BMD Index Citations

Just to complicate matters, I'll throw the Local BMD sites into the pot. Online versions of local Register Office Indices, produced by volunteers....

I've found several birth entries in these which aren't in any of the GRO indices.

Re: Basic setup and use of Generic Sources

The plugins that Helen refers to were written before FH V7 and they use an earlier 'template' concept. It would be confusing to continue to use the word 'template' in the context of Source records in FH V7 where the Source Templates are a rather different animal. It would be confusing to completely...

Re: Basic setup and use of Generic Sources

Helen; Thank you for the suggestion. I'm using v7 of FH, so I'll have to wait until you do the upgrade to fully assess the situation and see how to proceed. I had a quick look at the features of the plugin, as well as the code. The code somehow looks familiar to me. I've programmed in many language...

There's a plugin which may be of interest: Add Source from Template (V6 and below).

I'm currenly working on a V7 version which will be called Add Generic Source from Template.

If you know a rough region where he was born in England and Wales, https://www.ukbmd.org.uk/local_bmd might help -- it leads to 'online transcribed indexes to the original records held by the local register offices' and (as Mark said) records could go missing between the local register office and th...

Re: Forcing rollback of changes

More seriously, shouldn't a plugin test for 'foreseeable' errors before it starts committing changes? Get all its ducks in a line first, so to speak -- and (as Jane suggests) report expected errors meaningfully :) There'll always be the risk of unforeseeable errors but in practice, isn't that what t...

Re: Essential source templates not to standard?

P.S. I think this discussion illustrates why the Essentials templates are NOT pure Strathclyde, but templates that can be understood by beginners without venturing into the niceties (if that's the word) of template construction.

BTW: Once you create a Query it is immediately saved. You would have to specifically delete it.
You can use any existing Query to interrogate the Fields DRA without affecting the Query.
