Re: Exporting gedcom file to excel

Thanks - I've just spent an hour or so playing with the data from a FH query imported into Tableau via csv... and realised that it only understands relationships as text, without any understanding of what 'uncle' means in relation to 'daughter' etc. Which, now I think about it, is pretty obvious... ...

Thanks for your replies #Jane, #Tatewise and #Valkrinder... (not sure how to tag you - apols)... you all raise good questions about WHY I want to do it...

Exporting gedcom file to excel

Hello - is it possible to export a gedcom file into excel... I've found converting software on line, but a bit wary - https://www.oxy-gen-soft.net/index_en.php. The reason I ask is because I want to import it into Tableau... though not sure if this will show relational information.

Using Family Historian on more than one device

Apologies if there's an answer to this somewhere which I haven't been able to find... I have looked! I use FH v6 on my PC, but would like to use it on at least one other device - an iPad and / or a Windows notebook. Even more ideally, I'd like to be able to access it via the web, so I can use it on ...

Facts - adding values and attaching to more than one person

I am researching individual's slavery compensation awards, and so have created several facts: the amount of the award, the number of slaves it was for and the award no. I have 3 questions: 1) I've created 3 separate 'attribute' facts because I can't work out how to create all the information in a si...

I've downloaded the 2 'lookup' plugins, but have no idea how to start using them, and can't find any instructions anywhere. Please could you point me in the direction of instructions / or tell me how to use them, starting with the basics! Thanks, Ruth

Changing parent

Apologies for asking this because I'm sure it's very basic... but I can't work out how to change someone's mother... I've discovered the mother of a child is not the father's wife's, but someone else's (a freed slave, as it happens)... I've got them linked to their real mother, but can't get them un...

Re: Windows 8

Hi Mike - I want to reinstall FH on new PC. On old PC I have downloaded FH5 upgrade and still have registration key.

I didn't save the software download.

I can't work out from instructions in the knowledge base how to reinstall on new PC (Windows 8).

I just turned my wifi off - yes ancestry app works with it off... but you obviously can't access the tips... and I have to say, having spent the last two hours playing with the tips, it's BRILLIANT - instant access to records without paying a penny and without having to do any searches...

Following advice, have downloaded GedView app (and yes, easy to save file in dropbox and then import)... what's disappointing is the really restrictive family tree diagrams. I assumed there were settings to change no. of generations etc., but no. There's a gap in the market for an app which can show...
