Re: Grave and memorial inscriptions

Thanks for your comments. I knew that FindaGrave was purchased some years ago by Ancestry who swore at that time to keep it free for use, in accordance with the wishes of its creator, but of course that might not last for ever. I hadn't realised that FindaGrave is accessible via Family Search. I mig...

Re: Grave and memorial inscriptions

Thanks to both of you for your comments. I have had a look at site Gravestonephotos but I think Find a Grave looks more suited to our purpose as I would like to record the actual inscription rather than just the details of the names dates etc. I will have a play around more but I think you have conf...

Grave and memorial inscriptions

Hi I belong to a group of Friends of the local (redundant) church and (closed) graveyard and we would like to put the memorial inscriptions online, so that they are free to view. There are about 350 graves so not too onerous a task. We are trying to decide whether it would be better to put them on a...

Internet searches on FH using Find My Past

When FMP opens after I have selected someone and the pre-filled fields have included name and date to search from, the default location always shows as World, which I then have to change to England. Is it possible for the default to be set to, say, England? (If I go into FMP directly from the intern...

Re: Interpretation of 'Legal' italic writing in Wills etc?

I went on a course about reading old documents and, as well as the tip before about the scribble at the end of rows to make them all the same length, he recommended the following: Number each row on the text to be interpreted. Number each row on your interpretation, and keep them the same, so if you...

Hi Mike Yes, I think it would be useful, thanks. :D Lorna - Yes I use diagrams all the time too, they can be selected/ changed in multiple ways re size, shape, content etc. However all that takes time, and this QFF report allows a speedy and clear presentation of the main facts. See the 2 attachment...

Would it be possible to make the Ref Id's optional , so that they could be left off if I was doing a screen shot for display or to send to someone?

:D That's brilliant, already found the answer to a question about the varying size of my parish (its right up to the county boundary on one side so no doubt). Don't suppose there is anything similar out there for parishes?

Re: Ancestral Sources v5.2

Thanks for reminding me, I usually donate to you and FHUG in about March, totally forgot this year. Never quite sure if they are appropriate amounts, I certainly get my moneys worth.
Have a good weekend,

Re: Quick Child/Family Snapshot

I think the STD option would be preferable, as Arthur says it is confusing to have people with apparently huge life spans. Presumably the STD option would include dates that are Calc, or Est, or quarterly? Is 'Partner' a standard Fact or have you created a custom one? If so will it be picked up? Als...

Re: Quick Child/Family Snapshot

I agree with Arthur for all points.

I guess that if there are lots of children or siblings then it might be preferable to just display the BMD as you describe to reduce content. Could this be a choice in the 'Options' button in the fullness of time?

This is brilliant Mike, thank you. Only one query - I noticed that it puts in a date for birth or death where there is none and the dates it chooses seem a bit random eg on the attached John Sankey - no dates, it puts in ~1820 - ~1954 , or Emily Clarke - birth date 1847 but no death date, it puts in...

Would it be possible to export or save this snapshot as .pdf or jpeg, for example?

It was much quicker...
