Re: DNA cousins list?

Hi Jane, I downloaded the plug in for genetic Relationships and that works very well but obviously it shows most but not all of the people on my tree, 15000 records of 22400. However I was completely baffled by the topic on DNA, Gedmatch, etc, the more I read the more confused I became! I suppose th...

DNA cousins list?

Recently I put my DNA test on to My Heritage and got lots of matches, mainly stating that these were 2nd-distant cousins. The 2nd cousins were easy to find but 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th cousins and distant ones are very difficult even when you try to compare each other's trees. Would it be possible to...

Re: restoring default version

Thank you for the advice Jane and Mike. You're correct that I don't remember which settings I changed. However just doing the basics makes it look better but got some odd colours in the All box

restoring default version

Before I had my cataract ops I could barely see the program and the boxes, text, etc. Now that my vision is 20/20 can I reset the program to it's original defaults without compromising the information and how to do it please?

Re: Standard Query - Search For Orphans

Thank you Jane. It seems then as I focus on a particular person and run that query it shows who isn't related to them?

Re: Standard Query - Search For Orphans

So quite confusing, Mike! Even the 'general' explanation confused me! Why can't a query be just for those people who are not related to me or do you have to set it up differently to show that?

Standard Query - Search For Orphans

Ran the above today and was astonished by how many orphans are in my tree. However when I checked some are not orphans at all, having parents and ancestors as well as being related to me. So why is this happening?

Re: Media sorting

Funnily enough I used the DEAT. abbreviation for my place list so worked ok. Is there a particular place in FH that shows all the abbreviations, Mike?

Re: Media sorting

Wow that's super and I even managed to 'sort' them from a to b. Have 1960 passed away just in Sussex. It's knowing what the abbreviations are for the 'events' so that one can originate a query?
Thank you very much.

Re: Media sorting

Yes I use say Brighton, Sussex, England; only gets more difficult if in the USA, Canada, etc where they have 4 or 5 place names.

Re: Media sorting

Thank you, now I need a query for people who passed away in a precise county in the UK say like Sussex-what abbreviation would that use? Could I adapt the death query in custom facts?

Re: Media sorting

Very useful Mike and Lorna. I've now added in columns, individual and death which results in the list I wanted of 774 names which I can go through and check whether they passed away in the Wars. And NO, Mike I've never set up a query, in the past I've used standard queries or custom ones that you've...

Yes that is more understandable to me, done as you suggested for the Rows, what's next and how do I run it please.

Re: Media sorting

Sorry I don't understand any of it, I've tried and tried and it says 'discard changes' at end and I get no results. The explanation is like Greek to me!? Nowhere does it say how to save it! Waste of time. Probably simpler for me to go through my 21864 people in my tree one by one and work it out for...

Re: Media sorting

Thank you once again, the records linked to media worked great once I downloaded the plug in which I didn't have before. Found 75 of my people killed in WW1 and 41 WW2 plus some civilians who were bombed in London area. Now Mike can you outline a custom query that would show people who passed away d...

Re: Media sorting

Yes I put a Media Record of a poppy image to the Media tab of certain Individual Records and have used it for all my people who were killed during the wars. I guess then the best idea would be to sort by the year of death and then weed out the ones that didn't die in the wars; is it possible Mike, t...

Media sorting

I've put a poppy as a media item in my tree for people who were killed in the 1st and 2nd World Wars; is it possible to set up a query to find all those with a poppy in their media? If not could one or two be set up to show those killed between the war years 1914-1918 and 1939-1945?

Re: Relationship between FH and "Find my Past"

Have complained to FMP about their 'hint' system and they replied and asked for examples which I've just sent them; to add insult to injury I found one hint that was duplicated!

Re: Relationship between FH and "Find my Past"

Very interesting comments. Ancestry is as you say just as bad and also their idea of British counties is a complete nightmare unless you live in the UK you'd have no idea that Watford where I was born is in Hertfordshire, as according to Anc it was originally in Norfolk!

Re: Relationship between FH and "Find my Past"

I can't understand how the FMP 'hint' system works-they more often than not give hints that in no way correspond with the person in your tree, either with completely wrong names or wrong years of bmd's and even duplicated hints, Anc is bad but FMP seem to be worse!
