Re: Female Married Name

With AS and census entries, if you have recorded a marriage event for a couple, then even with the woman on her her own, the auto text will show her MARRIED name.
If you have not recorded a marriage event, the the husband needs to be present for the autotext to show the married name

Re: Show Project Statistics updated plugin

I was just wondering if that was the behaviour that Nigel was also getting. If FH was running full screen he wouldn't be seeing the pop-up?

Re: Show Project Statistics updated plugin

Mike, I have just tried the latest version 1.9.2.
The pop-up window to reset the grid does appear, but behind FH, so it is not visible. I had FH running on half of my laptop screen, so half of the pop-up window was visible.

Re: Problem with Lookup Missing Census Facts

Hi Mike,
I too noticed the speed when using the add relatives method.
Just a point about the Isle of Man on Familysearch. The Isle of Man is treated as a country in it's own right, probably because a lot of higher ups in LDS have Manx roots.

Re: Problem with Lookup Missing Census Facts

It was last web browser page I meant. I agree each search has it's own tab on chrome until you shut down or change computers. Is it possible to include Isle of Man in the UK searches? 30% of my individuals are from the Isle of Man, and about 5% of those have emigration events. The Manx can be found ...

Re: Problem with Lookup Missing Census Facts

Mike,
The plugin now does not seem to allow for the fact that as far as UK census is concerned, the Isle of Man is part of UK (If the use facts option is selected).

Also, would it be possible to have a button to retrieve the last search/results page. I know where to find it, but others may not.

Re: Recording GRO Index Birth/Death sources

Roman Catholic Registers mostly give the DOB as well as baptism, also mother's maiden name. Some may even contain details of a later marriage crammed into the space underneath. If there is a discrepancy between birth certificate and baptism birth record, I tend to use the baptism record. These discr...

I have occasionally had the problem where the computer's clipboard became disabled, so it was impossible to copy and paste any text from anywhere to any where. (Apart from copy and paste of sources or events, which use FH's own clipboard). This was usually cured by turning said computer off and on a...

Re: Transfer gedcom from free trial to purchased v6.2 on another laptopp

If you bought the full version of FH 6, you can also use the same serial number to "Activate" the free trial version to full status (You can have FH on 2 devices) , which will also mean that plugins can be run.

Re: Can I change the default location of the fh. files?

I have discovered that the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update will break any symbolic links that have been set up. It has done so on all of my computers.
After the update the links need to be recreated.

Re: Select Source

The order that sources are displayed when adding a source to a fact is governed by the sort order on the source record tab. At some point you must have sorted that tab on ID order. Just go to the Sources tab and click on the name column to sort in alpha order.
