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...

Re: Quick Family Facts update

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...

Re: Quick Family Facts update

Looks excellent Mike, as always. ...... I don't suppose there is any way to be able to click on the data in the property box without first closing the Quick Facts window? Having run one as a test I am now wondering exactly what my source was for some of the data and it would be good to be able to fi...

Thanks Mike.
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?

Re: English County Boundaries

: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?

Re: Quick Child/Family Snapshot

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...

Re: Quick Child/Family Snapshot

Would it be possible to export or save this snapshot as .pdf or jpeg, for example? I am thinking it would be useful for putting into a Word document, for example, for village histories of various people, and families. I did it as a clip on the attached so you can see what I mean.

Re: Historical Event Timeline

Have added these to the basic expression and they work a treat, see the attached jpeg (hopefully). (The historical facts seem rather random as they relate to different branches of my family, in practise I would set up 4 or 5 different ones.

Thanks.

Re: Historical Event Timeline

The reason I liked that one was that it included the words "Historical Fact" in the result, which was an easy phrase to select (well 'hist' actually) in the spreadsheet to determine which rows would be highlighted. I hadn't tweaked the sentence in option 2 so it came out oddly, but now I h...

Re: Historical Event Timeline

You were right, I worked so hard at making sure the formulae were correct that I didn't notice that the individual 'Historical Fact' actually had 'Historical' as surname - :oops: I have looked at the 3 variations and I like option 3 best (which is first download). If I were producing this in a repor...

I tried this but cannot get the historical facts on the same query result as the individual, only one or the other and the historical facts are always the complete list.
