Re: Uploading GEDCOM files

Just a thought about the opening from the desktop. I haven't got FH on the computer I am on at the moment, so can't test it. If you double click on the icon, it should open the project window as is happening. If you open FH first and use Gedcom tasks... open gedcom, it should work. It is not somethi...

Re: Marriage Licence wording in Records Window

The UK uses both spellings depending on context.

In the US, use "license" for noun and verb.
In the UK, use "licence" for the noun, but use "license" for the verb.

Re: Age Field Missing in Property Box

If you use AS to enter a burial record it bypasses the Global (2) setting that Mike mentioned.

[Mike's comment: Yes, it is effectively using the All tab bypass effect by acting on the GEDCOM file directly.]

Re: Change census date from Year to full date

If you have recorded the census as a census event, then the date checker in AS can do that for you.

See Knowledge Base > Ancestral Sources > Census Date Check.
