Re: Change marriage witness to relative

Thanks @David and everyone else. The only way I have used witnesses is as @Jane suggested in her post is as witnesses to events such as marriages and I have only used them when the witness has been created by Ancestral Sources. I had never seen that Witness dialogue before as I had no need for it. I...

Re: Change marriage witness to relative

The Facts tab for who?

I am sorry this is really not making sense.

What Witnesses dialogue? Some screenshots would help no doubt.

Re: Change marriage witness to relative

Thanks for the reply, yes it is the standard witness role.

I do not get a delete option on right click if I am selecting the right entry. See the attached.

Re: Change marriage witness to relative

@Mike Say John Smith gets married and one of the witnesses to his marriage is James Smith. At that moment I do not know what relations James is to John or even if he is a relative. Using AS I create the marriage entry and record James as 'A person not in file'. Some time later I find that James is J...

Change marriage witness to relative

Is there any way to change a witness to a marriage, for instance, to a relative of the bride / groom? I have come across a couple of instances recently where some time after creating a marriage from a PR and recording the witness that further research has ascertained that the witness is in fact a si...

Re: Weird problem FH, AS and Win 10

I raised this with Calico Pie as suggested by @Mike

They suggested
unticking the Open Workspace Windows Remember Property Box State.
This has fixed the issue for me in Windows 10 but it did not occur for me in Windows 7. Hope this helps someone else.

Re: Weird problem FH, AS and Win 10

Note that when FH reloads its GEDCOM like that, it is effectively starting up from scratch, the same as when you run FH initially. So whatever options apply to opening FH are applied when reloading the GEDCOM . @Mike My default view when opening FH on startup is with the Property Box open. @Lorna Y...

But you can add it as a menu item in the Tools menu tab.

Weird problem FH, AS and Win 10

I recently updated my VM from Windows 7 to Windows 10 Pro. I now have an issue that I didn't have on Win 7 . In my Surname study I often find new people to add. If the record is for instance an image of a marriage record I use Ancestral Sources to enter the new people in to Family Historian by using...

Re: Advice to using Historian on a Macbook Pro

I have just updated my MacBook with the latest beta of Crossover. I did not do a reinstall just an update of Crossover and so far there are no issues with Family Historian or Ancestral Sources. This is on Mojave not Catalina, my Air won't run Catalina as it is too old. :(

Re: FH Version 7

If you do upgrade to Windows 10, download the appropriate version of Classic Shell (a free program - google for source URL) for either the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows. I've used it problem-free since upgrading from Win 7 to Win 10 three years ago. It lets you change the UI to be nearly iden...

I extracted the zip file and copied the entire help file folder into the .dat folder. It works perfectly.

This is what I now have in the dat folder:

Sorry to be a PITA but I don't prefer either, both would be acceptable to me. I should have some time this afternoon to try the plugin on Crossover. I will let you know what I find.

Re: FH on "Microsoft Surface" machine

I did an experiment some while ago and successfully ran FH on a Linx Windows tablet running Windows 8 (IIRC) but as @Mike said it wasn't ideal due to the screen size. I stored the project on a micro SD card due to the limited built in storage.
