Re: Formatting of ‘Text From Source’ in Narrative Reports (and website)

I knew I would need some extra help! As suggested I voted for Wish List Ref 20 and was able to resolved the problem I was having with tabulating multiline text using the suggested link to the Knowledge Base.

Formatting of ‘Text From Source’ in Narrative Reports (and website)

Sometimes it is necessary to show the text from sources in a tabular form. Examples are census returns, the 1939 Register, and birth, marriage & death certificates.

Re: Use of {place_2} in Facts other than Emigration and Immigration

Hi Jane and Tatewise Many thank for your help. I had not appreciated that {place_2} was not a standard GEDCOM tag and therefore the addition of {address_2} was extremely unlikely.

Use of {place_2} in Facts other than Emigration and Immigration

As I understand it the use of the code {place_2} is restricted to the facts Emigration and Immigration. Also, there is no {address_2} which would be useful. Most of my and my wife’s ancestors moved around within this country and usually I can determine where they were on a certain date and where the...

For example under the Census (family) Event I have generated a Witness Role - Census (living with parents) - which I use to list all the children recorded in a census return. I then use the Witness Sentence: {individual} was r...

Re: Suggestion: how to port TMG's split memo's to FH

I too have migrated from TMG where I found the use of witnesses and split fields extremely useful. The primary reason for my migration is that TMG is no longer supported. However, I am having real problems with programming sentence structures in FH and so I was very interested in your post. Although...
