Re: BMD Certifcates and BMD Indexes

I would use it as a reference to the certificate. I tend to only create sources for the indices 'in-flight', i.e. if I havent received the certificate yet or dont intend to order it.

Re: Citing English Churches

Helen; Ok. Thank you. As you likely know, I tend to do splitting, use templates and a longer citation, but keep my source titles very short. I just wanted to make sure I had everything that was necessary. Just as a totally separate example to illustrate how I try to address what you also seem to do...

Re: Citing English Churches

In England and Wales it's the case that paishes and parish churches preceded the registers. The point i was trying to make is that a parish register only identifies the Parish not the church. For the purpose of citing it I take Adrian's approach, e.g. : The Xxx Register of the Parish Church of the P...

Re: Citing English Churches

My point, however, was more to indicate that the sites often indicate a church name when none existed. Parish churches always had a dedication (not a name) although that could be changed by rededication, often after rebuilding. What mattered for custody of the parish registers is that the church is...

Re: Citing English Churches

Just to confuse matters, there's way too many parishes of Weston, and way too many churches dedicated to All Saints. And some All Saints are in parishes named Weston - like the one in Cheshire that I'm working with right now. Which might explain why I started to look. I think that the church consec...

Re: Creating a Correct Place Record

I find a lot of Family Historian users prefer to combine Address and Place as you appear to have settled on. I find the reason they do this is that FH does NOT facilitate the Geocoding of Addresses and people do want to want to do that. If you do combine Places and Address, I strongly suggest adopt...

Re: Is it possible to merge facts for a person?

Helen; I haven't used that many DEAs, because most (with the exception of A.S.) don't handle user templates. If I can find ones that can employ my templates and at least give me something I can use to locate irregularities, I may explore that option. The current DEAs are fairly basic; you may have ...

No, but a well-written DEA (or any plugin) produces a 'Result set' at the end that you can inspect and use to adjust entries.

That's a result drawn from the Family Historian Help pages for FH6, which are out of our control -- we can't edit them or influence how the search engine used indexes them.

Re: Is it possible to merge facts for a person?

Some DEAs check if they would be creating a duplicate fact and offer to cite a source for an existing fact instead but i dont know what AS does or whatever method youre planning to use for GRO indices.

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.
