Re: Census entry for a widow

This happens if you have no marriage date or details entered for the Widow. AS doesn't know that she has been married.

Re: set flag based on fact

You don't need to add the flag at all. Because you are adding a fact about the disease, the diagram options can be set to test for the existence of the fact itself, and set the background colour accordingly (Or add an Icon). In the boxes section of Diagram Options select add condition add an express...

Re: Ancestral Sources - Remove Flag Support?

I am the same Nick.

Re: Introducing myself and a little (or maybe big) question

When I said FreeBMD mimics Ancestry (Maybe should be other way around), I was referring to the naming convention of the Index with years (And the split at 1915-1916), not the actual content.

Re: Introducing myself and a little (or maybe big) question

On Ancestry, the births are still shown in two catalogues with different date ranges(1837-1915) (1916-2007), FreeBMD mimics Ancestry, whereas on FMP they are both under the one catalogue(1837-2006). I use all 5 births as separate (Lumped) sources to show where I got the info from although I do now p...

Re: 1911 census reference Conundrum

Looking at the front page for the Queens Promenade addresses, the Piece Number should be 34674.

What is odd is that the references are incorrect (i.e. the same) on both ancestry and FMP

Re: 1911 census reference Conundrum

It is images that I am looking at.
By looking at the cover it appears that both FMP and Ancestry have the piece number incorrect for the Queens Promenade address (Thomas Arthur Corlett). It should be PN 34674

Re: Create Records Using AS v5.2

AS does not hold any data. It is just a "Front end" that edits the same Gedcom file as FH directly. This sounds like you are adding to a different copy of your Project/Gedcom file. If you use the Ancestral Sources Data Entry plugin whilst in your project, this ensures that your data will be entered ...

Use the Plugin called "Clone any record" to create a duplicate record.
Compare the 2 carefully, and then delete the appropriate records from each individual as required (I have to do this quite often)

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.]
