Re: Same sex marriage in church in 1902????

Adrian's got it pretty much right with his skeleton theory An entry appears in the St Gabriel register dated April 30 1902, but falls in between entries for March 14 and March 31 The couple's age and status are filled in with Isabel's residence (nothing for Alfred, no parent details for either) The ...

Re: To-do lists/Planning your research

I've seen it but not looked at it. I did wonder if it was V5 compatible as I think it was published in the V6 era.

Yes, was going to mention the census plugin in my post. It's the integrating of all such lookups into a single tool that I'm interested in.

Re: To-do lists/Planning your research

Having read the wiki, in my mind there's a lot of manual adding notes for mundane tasks. When seeing this topic, I was hoping that some/much of the these could be automated. For example you could automate the task Birth: Get cert from GRO by running a query on GRO index sources with type BirthIndex ...

Re: Age at Burial

Coming late to this, I think it may be that Ancestral Sources populates the age field in the Burial fact which FH then displays whereas entering a burial manually in FH, age isn't an available input in the default view

Re: Sheer number of sources!

A follow-up question could be: when does having a huge number of sources slow you down? With the way I work, I can think of one example: Say I have a source for a GRO death index entry and I subsequently buy the cert. I will enter the cert details via AS creating a second source. I prefer to merge t...

Re: How to Enter Place Data for England?

Just to add some parishes are so big, you may want to distinguish the areas inside them e.g. St Pancras contains Camden, Kentish Town, Holloway, Somers Town, Euston and so on. Now you could get away with Kentish Town, Middlesex, England rather than Kentish Town, St Pancras, Middlesex, England and pe...

Re: Box state or colour from named list

If you added a suffix Bt or Bart in the name field of your Baronets you've got the distinguishing feature that Mike is looking for.

If there are any other Baronets in the tree that you're not interested in, then just don't add the suffix to those

Re: If I wish to source something, make something

Date? Why not use between (year when younger partner was 16) and (year of birth of first child/ year of death).
i.e. a Range Date.

Place? How about Wales?

Though there is County Durham, used to distinguish county and city.

Re: Listing all individuals in a Diagram

Just to offer an alternative approach, I use expressions and icons to show where I DON'T have census and BMD info (actually not M).
