Re: Recording DNA matches in Family Historian

I am taking a completely different approach to identify in Family Historian (1) which people have taken a DNA test (2) marking the paths of proven DNA matches back to the common ancestors. (1) I have a flag "DNA" which in diagrams switches on a DNA helix logo beneath the boxes of people t...

Re: Two burial entries

Thanks Mike, that's very helpful. I hadn't realised that AS might allow for extra sources to be added to existing facts. Do you happen to know where I can find the instructions for doing this?

Two burial entries

My ancestor died within the parish of St Mary's Portsea, Hampshire. I found her burial record in the collection of "Hampshire, Portsmouth burials" on the FMP website and used AS to enter the details including an image from the burial register of St Mary's. I then found another burial recor...

Re: Exporting Gedcom file to Family Tree DNA

Hi Mike Thank you so much for your prompt reply which was very helpful. It's nice to know that I'm on the right track, at least to begin with!

I have just received my DNA results from FTDNA and would like to upload my FH Gedcom to their website. MY FH tree comprises both my line and that of my husband, but I only want to upload my part of the tree going back about five or six generations.

Re: Exception Report when upgrading from v5 to v6

Hi Mike Thank you for these suggestions. I think that I'm going to just ignore the Exception Report for now and move on. I was given v6 as a birthday present and I'm really looking forward to exploring all the new features. The individuals whose ID numbers were mentioned in the report are all releva...

Re: Exception Report when upgrading from v5 to v6

The date-time stamp of the Backup file is "2016-04-15 2148". I only have one project, so I am confident that the backup was taken on the same project that reported the exceptions. Obviously I realise that the backup is a few months old now, but I have made only a very few changes to my pro...

This is very strange. I've tried Edit>Find>Search For @@ and also @I3933@ (and others) but it simply says "no matching items found". When I try to view the Exception Report again in my Master project via Window>Log Files, it says "No log files found". Fortunately I printed off a ...

Should I continue to do all this on my temporary project rather than the "real" one?

Re: Exception Report when upgrading from v5 to v6

Thank you again, Mike. I'll give it a go right now.

Once I've run the UDF plugin and dealt one way or another with the all the UDF, what should I do with the "temporary" project?

Re: Exception Report when upgrading from v5 to v6

Thanks, Mike. I haven't disabled FH Autosave so will follow your original advice.

At the risk of being a nuisance ;), would you be able to take me through the process step by step please? I assume I need to save and close my current v6 project first?

Many thanks

Hi Mike Many thanks for replying so quickly and in such detail. Before I do as you suggest, can I just check something with you. Since installing the upgrade download, I haven't actually closed or saved my FH project so would I be able to uninstall the upgrade, use the UDF plugin on my v5 project, a...

Exception Report when upgrading from v5 to v6

I have been a FH user for many years, having started with v2, and have just upgraded from v5 to v6 by means of the upgrade download. As soon as I had installed the v6 download, I received an Exception Report, which is something I haven't come across before. There were about 25 items listed, all expr...

I have recently bought a new laptop with Win 8.1 and have successfully moved my FH project to the new computer. In order to continue using AS, do I simply have to install it on my new laptop or are...

Re: Multimedia object titles

Lizzie, Why not make the source title, multimedia object title AND the file name all the same. I usually save the file first (eg a JPG screen capture or download from Ancestry) with the title I want, at the same time copying the file title to the clipboard. Then when I create the source title I can...

I have been using AS for my census, baptism and marriage records for some considerable time. I have just realised that I may not have been consistent when choosing titles for the resulting multimedia objects. My preference is for the title to match the source title, whereas I have some which match t...
