Re: Surname list and count per project

You can do this and more in FTanalyzer which is a free download. It just reports on your Gedcom it doesn't change any data so it won't mess anything up.

Re: How to send info to relatives

You can always use the menu option Publish > Make CD/DVD and give that to them for their computer or use the Website creation option and put it online behind a login script.

Re: Unlink from one parent

It doesnt make sense to me at all Because illegitimate children of an known mother and unknown father do not necessarily have the same father. Does one add two different fathers or not? One's tree gets cluttered up with people called unknown unknown. I think in other software one can just leave a b...

Re: Can you copy a Record from one Gedcom file to another Gedcom File

Yes

All you do is select export a gedcom and choose the records to export and then fill the options in. If you want more options than available in the standard export then take a look at Mikes plugin.

Re: FH 32bit or 64bit?

@Mike

The only problem is that Catalina, the next version of OSX, is in public beta which means its delivery to live is imminent and there has been no update from Codeweavers for 12 months.

Re: FH 32bit or 64bit?

Mervyn I think that you are mistaken Crossover v18.x is a 64bit app and OSX Mohave does not complain about it. It is FH inside Crossover that generates the warning. See https://www.codeweavers.com/support/forums/general/?t=27;mhl=208277;msg=208277 and https://www.codeweavers.com/about/blogs/rabhiram...

Re: FH 32bit or 64bit?

The current Mac OS is complaining that FH is 32Bit and the new version which is dues in the next month or so will prevent it running at all. I just wanted to check that it was before asking Calico if there were any plans to make it 64bit. My Mac laptop is not meaty enough to run a VM unlike my deskt...

FH 32bit or 64bit?

Can anyone tell me whether FH is a 32bit or 64bit app? I suspect 32bit.

The reason I ask is that the next version of Mac OSX will not allow 32bit apps to run. Crossover has been updated to 64bit so that isn't an issue but I suspect that FH may well be.

Re: Advice about my own FT

It is your choice which way you do it. However, the recommended way is all in one Family Historian Project. As you go further in your research you may well find that there are other marriages between the Vella family and the Cordina family and having it all in one project ensures that data is not du...

Re: New Multifact plugin

I resized the FH window to be very small, about 500 high expected to see the cut off behaviour which I didn't. The Multifact plugin input box opened at its default size, exactly the same as when I had my screen set to ~1600 high (I have a 5k screen). But instead of the input box overlaying the FH wi...

I don't think anyone has mentioned YouTube yet. This is a good source of tutorials for some aspects of using Family Historian and Ancestral Sources. As well as reading the book it may well be worth watching some of these. This link takes you to some of them.

Re: When to stop with Sources

I don’t add married name to women where I don’t have birth name, but maybe I should, as I have an awful lot of Mary, Ann, Elizabeth etc entries.....!

I add the married name in square brackets as the surname so I can easily see the context and replace it with the maiden name when / if I ever find it.

@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...
