Re: Recording DNA matches in Family Historian

Thank you for explaining, Jane This shows how badly we in London need a session of your instruction Jane. You work from a diagram, whereas I dont have a default diagram text scheme. And I dont think I can manage to grapple with it just at the moment. As am not feeling too intelligent and am trying t...

Re: Recording DNA matches in Family Historian

Jane I have been making great use of your attribute and the associated query. Thank you so much. However, I wonder whether I am missing some skill in the use of fh? As I am having to use paper and pencil! I am sure you must manage things better. I add the DNA match John Doe to the bottom of his line...

Re: New Multifact plugin

Just a thought about my projects - I dont have many attached images. Only 3 images in my big project - I planned to link source images in fh but never got round to it. Could it be Janes's images?

Re: New Multifact plugin

Can I ask a subsidiary question?
Does the double place field mean that using this plug in one can enter two places in a single event?

Re: New Multifact plugin

Helen _ This is not going to be a useful reply. I arrived from TMG and have never before opened or counted the place records. The smaller project has 1003 place records and the larger one 2681. There may tho be relatively fewer addresses in the larger project which has been a major research file sin...

Re: New Multifact plugin

I found it slow to open on my own family tree. But then I just tried it with one of my largest projects of 4270 people and it opened instantly. As usual my efforts to actually use the plug in werent too happy. Being the ignorant guinea pig. I wanted to enter Census, Race, Education, Residence and in...

Re: Multiple instance of birth registration.

I think it worth posting that I have always found the individuals at the GRO Help are very experienced at sorting out problem entries.
One is never isolated with the index books.

Re: Using address and place fields

NB I add House number after Street name, to help auto-complete find similar addresses. What a revelation Mike. Thank you. German addresses have the house number after the street name. I have been copying and pasting these addresses, too lazy to re-edit them with the house number first. Now I can le...

Re: New Multifact plugin

I have not followed the technicalities of this. However, I notice the original application was for entering elements in a passenger list. I too use lists where a single entry on the internet database may include several different facts. However, some facts may appear more than once. e.g. 2 addresses...

Re: Recording DNA matches in Family Historian

Thank you Jane - for a kind explanation. I did not phrase my post well.
I am already a great user of named lists in fh, many of them selected via a query.
I hope others who have switched to fh will be encouraged to do the same.

Re: Recording DNA matches in Family Historian

Thanks Jane - I know one cant make a named list directly from a query - only by selecting the names in the result and editing.
But I didnt know much of the rest.

Re: Recording DNA matches in Family Historian

Jane - This was supposed to be a thank you post. It all worked brilliantly. But it has turned into a question about Reporting the data. Yesterday I discovered the ancestry service Thrulines which suggests how DNA matches might be linked to one's tree. It is sourceless with no surety and sometimes ga...

Re: Problems with extended families in AS

Thank you all for the discussion. As usual very useful. My use of AS has been limited. But I have been impressed by the number of in law relationships offered in AS, so I expected Step son and step daughter to be there as well. I didnt realise how much one can add by hand. I always use auto text to ...

Problems with extended families in AS

It is my understanding that once one has entered a census in AS one is unable to return and edit the original, so I have just had to delay supper while struggling to add a complex family. The problems arose because the census entry revealed that both partners in the couple had been previously marrie...

Re: Recording DNA matches in Family Historian

I'm lost again. I have a fact and a query but What is the Diagram? I think I also have a slight problem with the query, Jane, in that this is an individual query. Meaning that each DNA match can appear only once. I am fine with this at the moment as I keep multiple projects. But I already know one D...

I did try to delete the Fact type using work with fact types and got a message that it was not a true deletion. Should one de...

No. More confusion as I dont know what it is called - Gedmatch I think after all. But I now have two of ...

I am still completely in the dark. After three years using fh intensively I still dont have a clue what to do with this list of hidden attributes. I can see Gedmatch which is eclipsed and disabled. My attempts to rectify this are rejected. What do I do? I then seem to have 5 other undefined fact or ...
