Re: Census entry - Individual v Family

I'm with a number of other people on this in that I don't use the Census record as a basis for Residence. I use AS to capture data and as such the Address / Place of the Census record is only recorded against the Census fact (set via the relevant AS option). Although I hardly use FH reports, Fact se...

Re: How should we use the internet as a genealogy data source.

As a matter of course I always "Print to PDF" every website transcript I use as a source, and store that in the Media folder. It's a bit of a pain and obviously results in a lot of PDF files but at least if, for some reason, I have to re-search for something I still have the PDF of the ori...

Re: Occupation Problem TMG to fh to Gedsite

Evelyn - there is an option in GedSite to use the source system (viz FH) sentences or to use the sentences you have created / modified in GedSite. From memory (as it is a while since I tried the options as I now have mine cemented in!) but I think the FH / Export Plugin also has an option to export ...

Re: Changed name of project - bit of a mess

If you successfully open your project in FH, there is a Plugin Ancestral Sources Data Entry (you might need to download it from the FH Store), that auto passes the project name / location over to AS.

Re: Ancestor calendar

If you want a Calendar rather than a straight list, the website builder GedSite gives you that option. See my site at https://genealogy.tapscott.co.uk/up/Births.htm for an example - I have separate pages for each of Births, Marriages and Deaths, but these can be combined if you wanted.

Re: Urgent Merge & Compare question

I believe it has something to do with the "Fast Startup" option (which is "on" by default in Windows 10). To achieve the faster start up, Windows 10 hibernates the kernal so that it can boot faster. A Restart does not do this and thus could be considered a more "complete&quo...

Re: Census entry crash

Which field on AS do you paste it in to?. I always paste it in to the "Ref ID:" field in AS and, when the record is saved to FH, this populates the "Publication Information" field - as controlled by one of the Option Settings in AS.

Repercussions of publishing DNA on Genealogy sites

Interesting article in The Times today. In the 1970's and 80's a man "raped, murdered and abducted his way across California" and was never caught. Last year investigators took a new look at the crimes and, as part of this, uploaded the suspects DNA to a genealogy database. There they iden...
