Re: Apps for Android

Jane I've only just seen this post and I would very much welcome Android app. I came to FH from Roots Magic and I really miss having access from my smartphone. It would be useful to be able to edit on the move. Whenever I go to family events, I currently have to print the whole thing out, and it's n...

Wall Charts as HTML

I would like to be able to add a Descendants wall chart to my family website. At present I can only make .pdf's available. I do appreciate that it is possible to generate a website, but this is not what I need. It is also possible to use one of the many GEDCOM to HTML converters, but these, so far a...

Re: Notes field missing

That was it, I must have accidentally un-ticked it. All OK now

Notes field missing

Strange thing. For some individuals, there is no Notes field on the Birth Fact. Where it should be is just a space.

How can I get this back?

Thanks

Re: Adding 'Weight' to the 'Birth' fact

I've looked at your comments and have given a lot of thought as to what I want to achieve. I certainly want to store both the Hebrew name and birthdate, but I can't imagine ever wanting them to be displayed in wall charts, etc. However, I may, at some stage, want to print a report which includes the...

Re: Adding 'Weight' to the 'Birth' fact

Oh, I hadn't realise that I could enter a Hebrew date. That being the case, I don't need to add it as a note. I need the Birth fact to show the English date so I wouldn't want to mess with that. What I am going to do is to keep my existing Heb Name fact and enter the Hebrew date of Birth in that. Th...

Re: Adding 'Weight' to the 'Birth' fact

Maybe I'm trying to get too adventurous :? I now have the following labels: [[ Time: Weight: Heb Name: Heb Date: ]] and my sentence is: {individual} was born {date}< at {=GetLabelledText(%FACT.NOTE2%,"Time: ")}> {place}< weighing {=GetLabelledText(%FACT.NOTE2%,"Weight: ")}> {his/her} Hebrew name is ...

Re: Adding "Weight" to the "Birth" fact

Thanks. Just one more thing - I hope. I've added another two labels and it always says She or He. It looks like {Individual} makes it She or He
How can I make it say His or Her (for the additional labels)?

Re: Adding 'Weight' to the 'Birth' fact

I've worked out how to have this apply to all records and have found that adjusts the sentence accordingly.

Thank you both for your help.

Re: Adding "Weight" to the "Birth" fact

Yes, that works perfectly.

Do I have to do this each time I need these facts recorded or can I add it to the Birth Fact for everyone? If I do, will the sentence look wrong if these details are not available?

Thank you.

Re: Adding 'Weight' to the 'Birth' fact

Thank you for your suggestions. I have a few follow-up questions: 1. If I were to use the first option of using the note field, would weight be the only note I could record in the Birth fact note field? The reason I ask this is that I have also recorded the time of birth: Born: 18:30 Weight at birth...

Adding 'Weight' to the 'Birth' fact

Having just entered details of a new baby in Family Historian, I realised that there was nowhere that I could add the baby's birth weight (I have previously added it as a note). I created a new fact for this but would prefer that it was included with the Birth fact. The sentence might then say, "{in...

Alternative Names

My father was the son of an immigrant to the UK and, before his marriage, he changed both his first and last name. This applies to a number of people in my family and I would like to record both the name at birth and the new name and have both (all) names displayed in reports. How can I do this? Tha...

Using Dropbox for FH data storage

Let me start by saying I appreciate this may really be a question for a Dropbox forum. However, I thought maybe someone here may have had a similar experience of using Dropbox for storing gedcom files. I decided to make a folder in my Dropbox the default storage location for all my FH files. This al...

Re: Create a Burial Location Report

Hi All I am making progress, thanks to your help. I have downloaded the query and adapted it by including the expression to include anyone without a death fact but who would be over 110 (I originally said 120, but changed this). I have also removed some columns that I didn't need and added others so...

Create a Burial Location Report

Hi I am fairly new to Family Historian and would appreciate some help in creating a report that only includes individuals not living and displays columns that list Name, Birth Date, Death Date, Cemetery, Plot reference. The idea is to have a compact report that I can take with me on cemetery visits ...
