Re: Splitting my husband's side of the family away from mine

I've checked Lorna, and your correct, my mother and father are not listed, or my grandparents. If I use the "Pool All Relatives Except Partner Ancestors" Plugin will I need to start all over again?

When I run this plugin do I leave all the boxes ticked? I'm reaching for another wine bottle again!

Re: Splitting my husband's side of the family away from mine

Yes, I ran it for my Father's side first, then my Mother's. The individual records widow is showing all individuals including my side of the family (Notes, Sources etc.) At the top it reads Family Tree Project File (records) although my side of the family in the Focus Window is not shown. It's just ...

Re: Splitting my husband's side of the family away from mine

Many thanks William, I've had a play around with the "All Relatives Diagram" which I quite like. Mike, I've run the "Split Tree Helper" and this is now showing just his family, however, when I go to the "All Individuals Tab, all records are still there, it's just not showing in the Focus Window .Is ...

Re: Splitting my husband's side of the family away from mine

Oh I see. Thanks :) Rather than have my tree split, would it be possible to have FH GEDCOM for his side of the family on my laptop so I can show them if necessary? I do appreciate this Mike.

Re: Splitting my husband's side of the family away from mine

Thanks Mike, If I leave things as they are, but want to let a member of the family view his side of the family without having all of my side of the tree. what would be the best option? would this be a better choice than splitting the whole tree? and if so, how would I go about doing this?

Re: Splitting my husband's side of the family away from mine

Hi Mike, Yes, the reason being that my husband is not at all intested in family history so I won't be inputting any more information on his side of the family at all. I just thought it would be easier if his side was completely separate from mine and if/or when any family members express an interest...

Splitting my husband's side of the family away from mine

I wonder if I could ask for help with the above? I've read a couple of topics on the subject of using split tree helper and the plugin "All Pool Relatives Except Partner Ancestors" but not sure which one I should be thinking of using or indeed which boxes should be ticked or unticked. I want to spli...

Re: Running FH on two computers

All my media files are stored within my project and the only customizations I've done are Custom Facts and a plug-in for the back up and restore. I'm a bit concerned about the fact of inconsistant data files though. I did wonder about using Google Drive instead as both laptops are linked up with ema...

When did you order yours Valkrider? Yes, apart from the usual "we will endeavour to provide a response within 2 working days" I've heard nothing. I've sent them an email tonight so fingers crossed I'll get a reply on Monday or Tuesday :cry:

Re: Backing Up

Hi Mike,
Yes, I did see the restore tab in the plugin. Unfortunately I didn't read your reply properly and thought (wrongly) that there was a restore folder contained in the Project/Backup files.

Re: Male child with just a surname on a Birth Certificate

Hi Brian, There was nothing added in the Baptismal Name after the Registration of Birth. To be honest, normally I wouldn't have took a chance and ordered it, however the GRO had the additional extra information that the Mother's Maiden Surname was given in the indexes so I was pretty sure I had the ...
