Re: Source for new Individual

I have done this in the past using auto source citation. Create the source (the book in your case). I then turn on Auto Source Citation and then add the individuals and it assigns the source to their whole record as you create it so you need to be wary of adding additional facts to the individual th...

Re: Internet Data Matches

Derek

Are you using the internal browser or external browser? If you are using the internal one then it may be worth swapping to the external one.

Re: Orienting certificate images

It is EXIF data not exe. There are tools available that can remove it however that is not necessary as FH ignores the EXIF data as per Mikes earlier reply. It seems from your comment that Rootsmagic does use the EXIF data. I also use a Canon scanner and just rotate the image after the scanner has sa...

You can alter the size of the images in reports to make things like census records readable. Just go into the report setting options

Re: Exporting To Excel To Edit, Then Importing Back

That is possible but would not be a recommended way of working. On export and on reimport you may lose some data you may lose media links etc. If your relative can do the editing within 30 days he/she could use the free 30 day trial of FH to do the editing. Alternatively there are free genealogy pro...

Re: Exporting query results to MS Access

I use the plain csv option for my exports into Excel without issue. I don't use Access any more but I seem to remember that there is an option to import a CSV file into a new database.

What exact problem are you having with your exports?

Re: Census Page 1 info - how to record it and use it?

David

I am with Mike and don't bother.

However, it would be easy to create it as a source in its own right and then attach it to the appropriate facts as well as the actual census page transcription.

Re: Corruption discovered in TMG import made in 2009

There are a couple of programmes that I am aware of Gedcom Validator from Chronoplex FTAnalyzer available in the Windows store The first will need you to export your gedcom as a utf-8 version as it won't work with the utf-16 FH standard format. Doing this may fix your issue. The second programme wil...

Re: I would like to share my family historian project with my cousin who is now a family historian user.

One way is to do a medium backup. Email her the resulting zip file. All she then needs to do is restore from backup in FH and she will have all your information including images. One thing to be aware of is that you may be in breach of copyright/website T's & C's if you share images of records that ...

Re: Use of C and E drives on pc

I think to move away from the default C for program installation is best avoided, especially in your situation, where the C is an SSD, and so generally better for speedy start up of programmes. Sorry I do not agree with this advice with only 110gb drive, if you have a lot of programmes you will soo...

Re: Review Folder Permissions Plugin Snippet

@Mike

My Mac folders are mapped drives so do have a Windows drive letter assigned. It seems as though your plugin seems to be ignoring the mapped letter and actually looking at share folder structure. Could you swap it to look at drive letters?
