Re: Source Types and templates in fh?

Elizabeth thingee is the first to say that things should be recorded in a way that you and others can find the source again if you need to. If you are not going to produce an academic/published tome, or perhaps doing it as a paid professional, then you don't need to follow her very precise method, a...

Re: One Name Studies

Not used Clooz, but used the other two. I think FHn and Custodian serve slightly different purposes. For me Custodian (version 3) was brilliant for holding census information of an entire place, over time... and generally keeping track of a place/ house over time. What I did not find easy on that wa...

Re: Problems getting information from relatives!

People are often happy to receive, but not to send, family information.

I agree that the language is not helpful. Its also noticeable in some of the example sheets, which Mills gives in her book and on the web site, that she does not use the word "repository".
