Re: Using fh to list military?

Hi, I am not sure what you are trying to record/document exactly on your military project, but I have used a number of different customer events/attributes to record different aspects of my relative service, as when I looked at there are a number of different 'events' that occur for the person. So I...

Re: Ancestry tree problem

Hi Nicola, as Mervyn mentioned this is a feature of the Mac OS and Safari, its not a problem on Ancestry. Safari/OS is detecting the field is a 'name' field (I would guess they look at tag names in the web page), and then tries to be helpful and auto-complete the data entry for you. Ancestry have no...

Re: "Shires" and "Counties"

Hi Bob, Irrespective of the county name containing 'shire' or not at the end, in my own view in the UK we don't normally include the work 'county' as part of the place name, it only tends to be used when referring to bodies/organisations. So for example, Essex is the county and just referred to as t...

Hi Mike,
Thanks but not really, I am looking for a tree diagram rather than a Fan chart, as that is a lot clearer to follow when picking out individuals/branches.

Re: Create new template - Electoral Roll

Mike The problem is that if you create a new census template it requires a date for the template, of course with an electoral roll you would want to input the date not have a fixed date. Any thoughts? What I have found is that if you go to the front of the 'book' for the UK electoral rolls it has a...

Re: Trf FH to Mac computer from usb stick?

Hi Barb,
I have been running FH on Parallels for a number of years, first on Vista and now Windows 10. The main thing is to make sure that you have plenty of memory so you can split it between the MAC and Windows with each having a decent amount to run.

Re: Most Recent Common Ancestor (MRCA) report

Another possible option is to use a simple query to find the common ancestor for the people you want then do an All relatives diagram for that person and use the "Family Connection Mapper" to add in the Three Routes. Agreed it's not a one button solution but it is possible. Another option...

HI Mike,
Still no joy even changing that option, and restarting the program. The option is only available until you change one of the people in the how related dialog, and then it gets disabled.

Most Recent Common Ancestor (MRCA) report

After recently getting my DNA tested, I am finding that it would be nice to have a version of the ‘how related tool’ that goes a bit further to help with the identification of DNA connections. Rather than just showing a diagram of how two individuals are related, I would like a version of the report...

I have a 'shortcut' on the task bar, but if you also find the actual program (from start bar Richard click and do open file location) you can get the properties.

Re: Display problems in Windows 10

Have you tried the compatibility settings (from right clicking the FH icon, and selecting properties, then the 'Compatibility Tab') ? There is an option for disabling some scaling options on higher DPI displays.

There's a little utility called magicISO that can be used to mount a disc image as a virtual cd drive. It might be enough to fool the NBI software.
