Re: 1939 Register

The opening of a closed record was not my problem. It was the cropping of the image which left out part of the surname note on the opposite page.

Re: 1939 Register

I believe it is more complicated than that. The Register was used as the basis for NHS registration and it seems that the original belongs to the NHS archive. An overseas academic contact of mine was trying to trace a relative, who died in the war and was unable to read her married name which was cu...

Re: 20,000 and still going strong!

Thank you indeed. Without you Mike, three years ago I would have failed yet again to get to grips with and use fh. I am forever grateful too for your Query tuition and the small gifts like a family view to replicate TMG. But it isnt good if you start to feel this forum as an obligation. Please look ...

Re: Military history fact set - FH7

Evelyn, as Helen said earlier, all Fact Sets are compatible with both FH V6 and V7. It is simply that the Downloads in the FHUG KB have not yet been updated to say they are FH V7 compatible. There is a LOT to update there and only a few people doing it, so more volunteers would be welcome. Is this ...

Re: Military history fact set - FH7

I am curious why a fact from v6 might not work in fh7? I have quite a jumble of militry facts but have been using Unit and Service number indiscriminately in the two versions fh 6 and now in fh7. I am trying to identify all men in a Royal Artillery Brigade on the census of 1911 and find their servic...

Re: Reverting to fh 6.

Reverting to fh 6.

I deal with large databases of families who are not known to me. I have made frequent use of the instant tree diagram feature. This is no longer instant. One is required to make a choice and OKay. Is there a way to make fh7 behave like version 6? I would like to eliminate some of these extra clicks ...

Thank you so much for updating this to V7 Mike. This is probably me forgetting, but the update still reminds one that one can open it using Alt T Q and that is no longer working for me.
