Re: change settings so dates are circa instead of cal

Thank you all for your contributions! This reminds me of student days when we used to discuss things and wander off topic but it was always interesting.

I wanted to change it to c. because when I print out charts for family members they get confused by cal.

change settings so dates are circa instead of cal

Is there a way to change the dates of birth created from census entries to c. instead of cal ?
If it is amending a date there is a dropdown box with a choice but I can't see where I can change it to be the default

Re: Find my Past... or Ancestry ?

I use both Ancestry and FMP, I think Ancestry is better for census searches, it brings back results even if name is a bit different, FMP is more prescriptive. FMP is better for finding marriages, also as stated previously 1939 Register and Staffordshire & Devon PR which I use a lot. I also use t...

Re: Problems with Find My Past hints

Finmypast are giving free access to records from hints this week, regardless of what type, if any, subscription you have. Response times are very slow at times and there are often messages to say there is a problem, try again. This could be causing the problems you are seeing.

Re: FH6 on a new windows 10 PC

FH now installed thanks to the nice people at Calico Pie. Installation backup has also been done. Thanks for the advice.

One good thing came out of searching for the v5 disc and key, the cupboard in the spare room is a lot tidier since I threw out so much junk during my search!

Re: FH6 on a new windows 10 PC

Hi Mike I backed up all of my projects and settings, and I have the email with the v5 to v6 key, but I could not find the v5 disk - this is really annoying as I have the old ones going back to v2 when I first bought it. I bought a new disk of v5 rather than try to keep updating fom old ones. I have ...

Re: FHUG Latest News

Thanks Nick - but shouldn't the new release of FH be mentioned there too? (don't worry, I know that is not your job)

I just wondered if a few months of posts had vanished or has it not been updated for some time and I just didn't notice?

FH 6.1.4 Source Pane

I have just updated FH this morning, and went to update a couple of items. I keep the source pane docked and if I want to look at the text in a source I just had to click on the source name for it to open. That no longer works.

Do I need to tweak something somewhere?

I can't see anything here about the new version of FH or about AS?

In fact it doesn't appear to have been updated for over a year.

search preview is now showing another name on the results preview. Instead of just the name you searched 'and 2 more people, it gives a second name. That should make searching easier

It looks as if FMP have removed the reference Piece Number from the results. There must have been too many people using this method to see the names on a page

I have just received another 25% offer, it came with the FMP Fridays newsletter, so perhaps you need to subscribe to that to get the discount.
