Re: AS - Problem with deleting data from an automatically populated field.

I have never seen a brides mother (or grooms mother for that matter) on a marriage certificate unless they were a witness. AS simply adds the mother's name as it should be. I always accept that as it confirm the connections. The names on the certificate is what is shown on there when the image is ad...

Re: Recording Business Addresses

How about adding a fact named 'business' or whatever you want to call it.
You can add any fact you like. I have added one called 'newspaper reports'

Re: Duplicated Family

I have used merge.
One problem I have found is that the merge does not include children. If one side had a chikd and the other didn't an you merge the two that child is not listed after the erge and I have to locate it to add it to the parents

Re: How do you record Unknown people?

If you put Mary// you won't know who it it is linked to especially if there are more than one Mary. Putting her hosbands surname in brackets will help here.

Re: FH7 - Witnesses - Females - Display married surname rather than maiden surname?

Not all witnesses are on my tree only those related.
If a maiden name appears all you ned to do is look up the name on your index and you will then find the married name.
Personally I am not bothered about the witness name and one only has to look at the certificate to find the married name

If I don't know the surname I simply write //(anybody) for the female.
For the male if it is the father of a child I just put //anybody
