Re: Cannot start Family Historian

It also looks like you have several PDF programs installed (Nova PDF, PDF Viewer plus, as well as (Probably ) some version of Adobe Acrobat viewer). Try disabling the view report after creation option (I think 2 programs are trying to open the report at the same time) Also try uninstalling PDF viewe...

Re: Insert today's date

Peter, that is why I use today's date on the citation. To provide me with an "Audit Trail". When I look at an individual's Birth record for example, and can straight away see what dates that I got the relevant sources. Prime example would be if I got 1939 register over a year ago, it would be time t...

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 ...

Re: Splitting an individual record

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: Uploading GEDCOM files

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.
