Re: Ancestral Sources Template ~ Electoral Register UK

I'm not sure yet unfortunately...… I have an Electoral Roll / Poll Book for 1853, so I tried putting that in the 1832 option (as it does not give an 1853 option). Doesn't work because when you change the Census Date to 1853 it won't let you store the entry! Is there any way around this? As you know,...

Re: Ancestral Sources Template ~ Electoral Register UK

When I select Census and look at Census Country, the Electoral Register is now an option and if I select it I now have the four options in the Census Year....so I presume with your help I have cra...

Re: Ancestral Sources Template ~ Electoral Register UK

Re: New Multifact plugin

Hello again, Just an update......I removed vers 1.4 and reinstalled 1.5. On my laptop (screen resolution, 1600 x 900), it appears exactly the same as in vers 1.4. Too big for the screen, I cannot see the bottom of the window and I can just drag the margins to make it wider but not narrower or smalle...

Re: New Multifact plugin

As an addendum, I can drag the window around, but I cannot see the bottom of the window and unlike Mike, I cannot even adjust the width. Hope it helps.

Hello again,

If it helps, my laptop screen size is 17" diagonal, 15"width and 9" high, out comes the Pythagoras! So it is not a small screen.

Re: Occupation entries after burial

Thanks for your suggestions.....in general, the occupation is the same as expected. I think I added most of the marriages via Ancestral Sources, so I already have a Source, but the actual marriage date is entered for the deceased father's occupation etc. Most of these discrepancies come from marriag...

Hello all, Just a quick question...… My wife has decided to try to find out the past inhabitants of our house.....Is there any way that FH can handle this? A tree by house and not family? Would love to know if FH can handle this. If not is there another package out there that can? Best wishes, PP
