Re: Ancestral Sources v7.2 Now Available

Thanks Nick, it was only with the last update as I've only made changes to the Auto text templates since using AS on my working project. I will rename all the changed ones and work from there..

Re: Ancestral Sources v7.2 Now Available

Hi Nick, Just a quick question. Is there anyway to find out which "Auto text templates" have been updated? Maybe its an oversight on my part and I should have cloned your templates and renamed the clones and made my changes to them. Then when AS is updated can just update the default changes and com...

Re: Starting FH7

Mike Thanks for the info re the tmp files. I don't use auto backup as that's screwed me up before with AS. I backup manually when I make changes and also backup to dropbox when I close FH. The only program I use to open the gedcom outside FH is Notepad ++ and I've never had this problem before FH7. ...

Re: Starting FH7

Thanks for all your responses and it appears that this is "normal" on startup. As it doesn't seem to affect the operation of FH once everything is loaded I'll leave it as is.

Re: Starting FH7

Lorna, I have my main project already set as the default project so that when you open the FH program it should start with that.

Starting FH7

I've started to get a problem with v7 in that when I start FH it opens with "Untitled Standalone GEDCOM file (limited functionality)" which is empty and then eventually opens my default project. I haven't made any changes to the setup as far as I know but its started to do this in the last few days....

Re: Problem Upgrading to AS7

Hi Nick, Yes I do have .Net 4.8 installed, its version 4.8.03761. I tried a further three times at installing AS7 but still no luck in getting it to open up. Surely I cannot be the only person in the world that is using windows 7 with FH & AS? Even on my Linux desktop running VM with windows 7, AS w...

Nick I've upgraded FH to version 7 with no problems at all, it all went very quick and easy. Now just have to learn how to use the new features etc. But it has been a different story with AS, first I tried to upgrade my present version to V7 everything appeared it install correctly and no error mess...

Re: Recording a Couple marrying twice

Yes Mike and can see where your coming from, but it is slightly different to the situation I have. In the Burton/Taylor situation they had two distinct marriage events that start and end so yes show as two different family couplings. In the case I have it is just one family coupling but they had two...

Recording a Couple marrying twice

I have a couple who have two marriage events, one in Ireland in 1846 and one in South Shields in 1865. They are definitely the same people in both marriages and you can track the family with children around the UK in the 1851 to 1891 census so its is definitely them. The reason for the marriages is ...

That's correct as that is the "Ancestral Source Data Entry" plug-in version no. NOT the Ancestral Source version no.

So as far as your last statement, how do I now add the citation to the ones where I didn't use AS or Automatic source citations. It looks like I could have quite a few to do.

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to put this question, it's either FH or AS, but I'm sure Mike will move it if neccessary. It's all to do with Source and Citations, and just to set the scene I'm mainly a splitter not a lumper. I'm also in the process of cleaning up my data and it was during...

Since being in lockdown :( I've decided its a good time to cleanup of my Family History research both in Family Historian and TNG and to be honest I cannot now see the point in recording children with the "Occupation" of "Scholar" as an event, but will still record it in the "Text from Source".
