Re: Creating a website options

I am sorry but they don't there is no style code in those span tags. Try deleting them and see what displays then. See https://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_span.asp particularly the bit under 'Style and Usage' #2. They need to have a style statement too. It is likely that your li element has the verti...

Re: Creating a website options

@dewilkinson Why all the empty span tags (or is this just poor coding in FH)? They make invalid html. They are intended to add styling to the links but no styling is applied. Rather than using those &nbsp you would be better off creating a CSS class of left padding and applying that to the eleme...

Translation of old French documents

I am afraid that my schoolboy French from over 50 years ago is not helping with the full translation of these records. I can do a couple of bits but if anyone can help I would be very grateful. There are two images one of Charles Villeneau marrying Esther Sorre on Sunday 26th June? and the second of...

I use FreeFileSync to keep mine all in sync. It works well on both Windows and Mac and best of all it doesn't cost anything.

Re: Synch FH on two Laptops

I use a NAS (Network attached Storage) drive at home and back this up to Google Drive automatically once a day. No issues at all doing it this way. If I use the laptop away from home then before I go I download to the laptop and upload to the NAS drive if necessary when I return home.

Julian date entry

Is there any way to enter a Julian date in Ancestral Sources?

I tried the FH method of [J] in front of the date but AS complains about invalid date format.

Re: A simple to-do list

Mike My requirements are the same as Helen's it is just we disagree on desirable vs must have.

Re: A simple to-do list

Are you a resident of the European Union? If you are then you could do this using the GPDR legislation. If you aren't then you will have to check out the T's & C's on the My Heritage site.

Re: A simple to-do list

Helen, I think that Repositories is more important if for instance I am going to a particular Town, whilst there go to the graveyard and search for xxx gravestone. So a search on 'what have I got to do at this repository' only one item so check others and at 6 at this other repository so I will plan...

Re: A simple to-do list

One thing to add to the minimum imho would be 'Repository' be it website or physical location such as library, graveyard etc.

Re: Personal Historian Essentials from RootsMagic

Interesting the Mac version is huge in comparison with the Windows version so it is probably packed into a dedicated Wine package.

I will give it a try.

Update...
I downloaded the Windows package and installed it on my Mac using PlayOnMac and it installed fine with no dependencies.

Re: Who was living at 22 Castle Street, London around 1907?

Jane

What about looking for pages either side in the census for an unusual name then putting that person into the search for the electoral roll. Hopefully they will still be living there and you can then search Castle Street.

Mac Crossover Users update

If you are running Crossover on a Mac (I don't know about Linux) make sure you do the update to v18.5.0. I have been running the beta and it does not now crash Family Historian when you update a gedcom in Ancestral Sources that is open in FH. :D :D

Is it worth adding a zip file of the pl folder to the KB? It may make it easier for people having similar issues.

Does your pl folder have anything other than lua files in it? That is all that mine has and yet the error messages indicated that some dll's were missing.

Re: New Multifact plugin

I have spent the afternoon trying to resolve this and can't. Those files do not exist in those locations on my other Mac that uses a virtual machine, so I am at a loss. Why is pl needed for this plugin whereas others don't seem to require it.

I will do some more digging this afternoon but it looks like one of the updates to Wine or the Mac may have messed with something.

I now get this error message.

Looking in the pl directory none of those files exist.
