Re: Baptism Entry

Thanks Helen for those "Pearls of Wisdom"
Maybe there is a need to have witnesses to the birth, the conception might be a little more difficult.?

Re: Baptism Entry

Thanks Mike for the info.
I have now solved the problem. I thought if you delete something it's deleted but apparently not. You have to use the "clear" link next to the field and not just delete what's in the fields.

Baptism Entry

I'm not sure if I'm missing somethings but at the moment I am entering quite a number of pre 18th Century baptisms, and in those days the mother was not usually Shown. 1. On the AS Main Info page I uncheck the "Mother" box 2. On the AS Residence page I uncheck the "Mother's Residence" box But when t...

Re: Another Deciphering request

Thanks Everyone, I now agree with Mike's idea of it being "Xmas Last", not that I would have even thought of that. The 3 years does fit with the date range for James & Mary's kids being born Mary 1752, John 1755, Elizabeth 1758 and James 1764 so Anne (1761) would fit in the gap between Elizabeth and...

Re: Splitting Family Tree & Excluding Spouse's Media & Place Records

Bob,

On the opening page of the export dialog make sure you have selected the Exclude option - Unconnected Records. Then only media, places etc that are associated with the people being exported will be included.

Re: unexpected Media deluge

In the Export Gedcom file dialog box make sure you enable (tick) the "unconnected records" box. This will then exclude any of the notes, media etc that are not connected with the people your exporting.

Export of named List

I am trying to export a named list so that I can run the Export Gedcom plugin to upload to TNG. My main FH file has 10,000 people, about 2500 locations, 15,000 media items and 6000 source records. The named list has only 742 people, however when I look at the exported gedcom, it has the correct 742 ...

Re: Export GEDcom plugin -- some questions

Mike, Thanks for that explanation and I can see where your coming from, but from your example wouldnt that be the case no matter what software you were exporting to? So to clean up the place records, I would have to use the plugin to export to say RM (as thats not in your exception list) and then im...

Re: Export GEDcom plugin -- some questions

Mike, Not sure what you mean by this statement re TNG:- "Exports to GST and TNG retain Place records that link by unique name, so changing the Place names is not allowed, as tidied names may no longer be unique." At the moment I use you excellent Plugin but then manually remove the extra commas and ...

Re: Export Gedcom File Plugin

Mike

Thanks for that, I didnt think of that method.

Will give it a go, but basically it is the same as I was doing with RM as a "middle man", but using FH twice to do the same thing.

Export Gedcom File Plugin

Mike Is it possible to add an option to this wonderful plugin whereby one can export Named Lists rather than just the whole file. I know you can export Named Lists via the File-Import/Export Opton, but this is just the basic export. Not suitable for loading into other systems. The reason I ask this ...

Re: Sources, Citations, and Methods

Mike, You need to add the {date} code after {abbr} for the Records window listings ONLY as inserting the initial String removes the date. {=TextIf( Exists( %FACT.SOUR>% ), "*", "-" )}{=TextIf( Exists( %FACT.SOUR>OBJE% ), "+", " -" )} {abbr} {date} {place} example for Census in Records Window etc wit...

Re: Pre-release of version 6.1

Mike, David.

Thanks both for the tips. I have Trusteer Rapport installed as my Bank uses it.

I first tried just running it as an administrator and everything installed fine, so I'll leave it at that but will keep in mind the removal of Rapport if I come across this type of problem again.

Cheers
