Re: Using OS Map refernces in Map

Found this site, which gives the functions needed to convert Lat/Long into a Grid Reference.
Would definitely need a Plugin to do the Conversion. Not sure if this would help.

Re: Diagram Box Options for Marriage

It is possible to show Marriage in both Male and Female at the same time.
Just need to change the Options as described by Mike.

Also depends on whether you are looking at Ancestors or Descendants. As by default the Marriage info is shown in the Descendants Spouse Box whether that be Male or Female.

Re: Main Ancestors for DNA matches

The simplest way is to use File->Import/Export->Export-Gedcom and the select who you want by use of a Query. In your case use the Ancestor Query and should then give you exactly what you want.

There is a known problem with the latest GRO Index. In that in some circumstances which are proven the age given at Death, should be an age in Months/Weeks/days etc rather than Years. So is possible that the 1861 Death is for someone aged 21 Months, which would bring into play the Birth registered Q...

Probably doesn't really matter much so long as

a) Your consistent with how citations for that source are recorded
b) If someone else looks at your data, are they able to easily work out where it came from and find it.
