Re: Setting up Photos within FH6

Thanks Mike, I will go through what you have advised. So just to confirm.....when I add a jpeg of a say, Baptism to AS and complete the process, it produces a media file of the Baptism and links it to a New Source record of the Baptism for the individual. I think I have many of these generated throu...

Hello All, I am in the process of scanning lots of old family black and white photos and saving them in a directory on my laptop. Some of these photos need attention, scratches, pen marks and general fading etc. I am sure that many of the FHUG have already been through this process.........What type...

Re: Interpretation of Marriage Witnesses etc

These are the reports th...

Evening Mike, I have run a query or two.....and I have converted the Non Standard Witness roles i.e. Vicar, Mother, Father and Parent to Minister for the Vicar role and Informants for the others. There weren't many of them. I have now matched up the Roles for Birth, Baptism, Marriage, Death, Burial ...

Thanks Mike, Cremation Facts and Roles same as Burial in FH. If I reset the Marriage to defaults does that affect my current Marriage Witness information in my database or is that kept as is? Or does it affect just new marriages input via AS? Do I need the Father and Mother (and any non standard rol...

Hi Mike, Thanks again for your help. Having read Jane's response, about the Witnessed Event in the Records Window / All Tab, it made me think on which way is the best way going forward. You mentioned that there will be changes to Witnessed Events in a newer version of FH. I assume these changes will...

Hi Mike, Thanks for trying to come up with a solution. Does this mean that I have to run a witness query for all Marriages and Deaths and then convert manually? I have had a little look at trying to set up an marriage witness entry in the individual's record by right clicking the name.....where does...

Re: Interpretation of Marriage Witnesses etc

Thanks Mike, The convert case 1 to case 2 might be interesting. If I experiment with this plug in, does this remove the entries under the marriage in total i.e. no witnesses remain, even those with just a name are removed (or do they stay) and what about the Minister entry is that separate, so it re...

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,...
