Re: Problems with Res Privata

I (still on Windows 7) also have a problem with UTF-8 so I cannot see how “this will be correctly processed by this programme” can be true.

My simple Plugin, in the store, Address Summary Report does something similar, so it might provide a few ideas.

Re: Ancestry DNA tests

Have you thought of using Named Lists? You could have a Named List for each of your Groups, and add relevant records to it; the records in a Named List can be a mixture of Individual, Family, Note, Source, etc. One advantage of this approach is that any record can be in more than one Named List.

Re: Printing Tabs

If you are using a Fact Query you will need the following formula for the RecordId of the Fact's Owner.

Code: Select all

=RecordId(GetRecord(%FACT%))

Re: Website created with FH software - can I include that in a WYSIWYG Website software programme

I found that I could navigate that over-long string of black boxes, but only by using the keyboard down and right arrow keys. I think I counted 32 items, which suggests the need for a more hierarchical menu structure.

Re: Query for lost persons

A possible solution requires two queries. First run a Fact query, for all facts, with the Fact-Owner (e.g. =GetRecord() ) as the only column, and select all rows in the result set and Add Selected Cell Records to Named List… . Then use an Individual query with row conditions to Add Unless… in this N...

Re: Queries. Note fields?

Back in 2012 I wrote a little Plugin Notes List for Individual which I keep in my Tools menu. It shows all the Notes (Local and Record) linked directly or indirectly to an Individual. It also shows the relevant Data-Reference for each, albeit without the Index.

Re: Linking 1st Cousins that Marry

Strictly speaking an aunt has to be a sister of one of your parents, and an uncle has to be a brother of one of your parents. The FH terminology is strictly correct, although different from everyday usage.

Re: Individual Summary Report - Modifying Layout

It seems to me that the 2nd column can contain Notes as well as Addresses, in addition to Dates, and that the 3rd column can contain Attribute Values (e.g. Occupations) as well as Places.

In any one family line, the oldest family is the one where neither husband nor wife has an ancestor (even if you don't know any of the dates). Does this help at all as a starting point?
