Re: Multiple instance of birth registration.

Paula, If you found multiple GRO Index entries in the 'old original' GRO Indexes with the same Volume and Page numbers then it's probable that the Registrar's staff were simply trying to cover all bases, i.e. different interpretations of the child's forename(s) and/or surname. In contrast, re-regist...

I would suspect that in that situation, the plugin would just run without any problems, as...

New Multifact plugin - How to get it working on Macs in WINE Builds

I've had a look at the problem Colin reported and can confirm that there is an issue if Mac Users do not have access to a genuine Windows installation of Family Historian with the plugin (or some installation that requires the 'pl' folder and contents to be downloaded) pre installed; i.e. On first r...

Re: 3D trees

Don't want to appear too negative, but you are asking about a very niche area of interest, in my opinion, and I can't, personally, see any great advantage for the vast majority of people who tend to be more interested in how their research can be best recorded and enhanced rather than investigatingi...

Re: FH constantly crashing after every entry in AS

@ KarenMG, Looking at your previous posts, it seems likely that you are using Family Historian (FH) and Ancestral Sources (AS) on a Mac, via Crossover/WINE. If that is correct and you have created separate FH and AS apps in Crossover then using AS on a datafile that is already open in FH will inevit...

Re: Editing source images?

And then there's also the need to straighten many images that have been poorly scanned by data providers which I would consider to be a necessary usability enhancement; as opposed to directly editing an image, which suggests making some alteration to the actual image content.

Re: On linux, Drag and Drop media to source crashes FH6.2

I agree with Colin, but it's certainly confusing that CodeWeavers chose Wine 3.14 (Development) when the 3.0.3 (Stable) was released shortly after and well before the final release of Crossover 18..0. My guess; and it is purely a guess, is that the reasoning behind settling on one specific version t...

Re: On linux, Drag and Drop media to source crashes FH6.2

According to information received from CodeWeavers, the version of Wine embedded in Crossover 18 is 3.14 (i.e. from the Wine Development Branch).

All 'Hints' systems use some form of 'fuzzy logic' which tend to give a broad range of 'matches' depending on the fuzziness of the logic!
