Re: Source Record Template questions

Helen Thank you so much. Its becoming a little clearer. May I ask another please? Ancestral Sources has the day/month date of each census automatically added to it. There is a white text panel to the right of the Source Template. Is there any easy method of populating the top of this template for a ...

Calico Pie resolved my problem

My upgrade from V6.2.2 to V7 hit problems which I hadn't resolved. I was using a download from last October 7.0.0.10.7 The solution for me was this, its version 7.0.1.1.e.

Re: error in import from Rootsmagic

May I add my problem which appears similar in nature or should I raise it as new issue? It concerns moving from 6.2 to 7.0 with a Gedcom that started life in DOS with Brothers Keeper, was transferred to TMG, then transferred to RootsMagic before moving to FH 5 I have 1,768 Individual Records but aft...

Re: Upgrade to FH7

Thank you everyone very much. I think Mike is probably right. Documents and settings contained several very old Projects that had been 'restored' when the PC was rebuilt (but not wiped) I had forgotten about them and I recall that the project window that I was presented with after upgrade contained ...

Upgrade to FH7

My upgrade to FH7 didn't work and I hastily reverted to 6.2. Because my C: drive is an SSD and 6 years ago I experienced a failure that was comprehensive and irrecoverable I don't trust them for data despite having a daily backup regime. Could someone tell me please if on the upgrade, the project Wi...

FH7 License and can it be uninstalled and re-activated

I need to remove FH7 and spend some time resolving problems with my FH6 Gedcom. If I do that, when I do reinstall am I going to hit problems re-licensing? All my Genealogical data is on a separate HDD (i.e. not the defaults that the program expects). I have about 1,500 entries in the FH6 Gedcom but ...

Re: Finding Adopted Children

Re: Merging two projects.

Personally, I would always treat my local Family Historian file as the base, or main version. Whilst all of the data that you need is on the Ancestry website your current system works. As your tree develops I am sure that you will not be able to supply all the information you collect from Ancestry. ...

For a non touch-typist. The ability as in Excel to press (Ctrl ;) and insert today's date would be convenient for Citations. I thought this must be available, but if so it has eluded me.

I just want to post a 'thank you' to Alexander Bissett the developer of FT Analyzer. It is the most remarkably useful "add-on" to FH and it's free.
