Re: Relationship between two people?

The first item on the Tools menu is How Related…. First you need to select any two individuals in the Records window. Keyboard shortcut is Ctrl+R.

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: Date Entry and Scroll Bar fixes

Top , Bottom , Left Edge , and Right Edge all work as they should in my Excel 2010 (Version 14.0.7224.5000 32-bit) on Windows 7 , but not in FH . However, Scroll Here does work in FH , which provides a sort of workaround if you right-click near the top/bottom/left/right edge of the light grey scrol...

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.

Re: Associated People

Retrieving the list of associates would be easy if they were all linked to the same Source; this would also have the advantage that the Source (or another record linked to it) would explain the connection between them. Otherwise, you would have to enter the Associated-Person link twice, once in each...

Re: How to find the oldest families

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?

Re: How to not mark the deceased without dates as living

If TNG needs a Death Event (even with no other data) rather than the absence of a " Living " Flag, to avoid exclusion as if living then, as discussed above, such Death Event s can be added in FH . If the relevant Individuals can be identified (e.g. born before 19nn) than the process could ...

Re: How to not mark the deceased without dates as living

So your primary objective, which was to prevent individuals from being treated as "Living", is achieved by exporting a GEDCOM from FH which contains " 1 DEAT Y ", i.e. a Death Event with no other data, easily achieved and maintained in FH . What we don't know is what in a GEDCOM ...

Re: How to not mark the deceased without dates as living

I never suggested using Notepad to create "1 DEAT Y". Entering a date phrase such as "Y" (with the quotes) will result in the following in the GEDCOM 1 DEAT 2 DATE (Y) and I don't know what TNG would make of that. As suggested earlier you can create the desired " 1 DEAT Y&qu...

Re: How to not mark the deceased without dates as living

I don't know the details of how TNG imports a GEDCOM file, but it must be able to handle the valid GEDCOM "1 DEAT Y" which is what you will get in FH's GEDCOM if you do as I suggested above. You certainly cannot input "Y" into a death date in FH.
