Re: Book Image ~ Where linked?

Understood, Media (Marriage Certificate) linked to a Source with its Citations linked to the Family. Apologises if my terminology is not correct and for being economical with my replies.

Re: Book Image ~ Where linked?

Thanks again Mike. Yes I just snipped the Data Ref Where Used part to anonymise it.
I think it has could have come about as I originally had Marriage Certificates as Individual Media links and then learnt they should be Family linked. I will explore a little more using your explanations.

Re: Book Image ~ Where linked?

Thanks Mike.
The Where Used Record Links plugin shows that the Certificate is linked to both the Individuals and the Family, i.e. 3 links.

How should I proceed from here, unlink the media from the two individuals?

Book Image ~ Where linked?

I have been playing around generating a Book and found an image of a Marriage Certificate appears to one of the individuals in the Descendants by Generation Narrative section, which I don't want. I first thought it was because it was in the Media collection for them but it isn't, it is where it shou...

Census Sources

Should each census show as a separate Source , listed individually or should they be grouped like this?

Re: Link to Frame

That is a false generalisation for FMP (and other online sites) as a quick review of Church Register images suggests the majority do have some reference details such as Parish, County & Year across the top plus a reference code, which is sometimes on the side, such as PBT/2/152/482. But yes some on...

Two possible ancestors

I have found that I cannot determine which of two ancestors in the 1790s is on my line. What is the best way to add them to FH? Construct what I can for both of them and wait until one becomes the front runner? The problem I see with that is how to show their existence in a Focus view. OR. Construct...

Re: Link to Frame

Thanks Mike, It is often necessary to retain the whole document image as proof of reference numbers, dates, places, etc, in the headings. Sadly the images from FMP Parish records don't seem to include their reference, only what was written. I have been fooled by that before! Whereas in Reports it is...

Thanks All, I was trying to post a picture without personal details, that is why image is cropped the way it is. I was only thinking of deleting the original image as the rest wasn't relevant, however I see it has to remain. The Select Frame just gives me sizing handles, it doesn't, like the Face Fr...

Re: Link to Frame

I was hoping to see it on the Source Media Tab so I could unlink the full document image.
But it isn't there. The frame is showing on the full image.

Re: Link to Frame

Thanks Bill.
I tried that but I wasn't able to see the resultant image anywhere !!
I should add that as it was a Marriage record it is a source for a Family record.

Link to Frame

Up to now I have used this to grab a face from a photo for an Individual's Focus record but wondered if I could use it to grab the text out of an old document to use as a Source. For example, a page of a Parish register of Marriages may have 20 marriages listed and only one of them is a relation, it...

Re: How do I undo this mistake

Yes it was adding the death I realised the anomaly, that 1406/8 had the same Baptism date.
Ok that is reassuring, make him Unknown and update when I find the correct details, thanks again.

Re: How do I undo this mistake

Of course, a picture is worth....etc. I have created the diagram using the BMD template replacing the name with the Record ID. Record 1408 is incorrect and is in fact a duplicate 1406 so needs to be deleted. I am concerned that if I deleted 1408 the sons and daughters would have no connections eithe...

Re: How do I undo this mistake

Thanks Mike, Unfortunately it is not a recent mistake so the Undo methods will not work. I am not sure if your delete option will either.

How do I undo this mistake

I have managed to create a duplicate record of an individual and the complication is that copy 1 is the father of copy 2 ! :oops: To make it worse the father copy is the root of my tree so lots of relations follow. I am still searching for the correct individual to replace the father with. What woul...

Re: Publishing a Book

Thanks Mike, plenty to work with. In FH's book editing tools I reduced the scale of the Descendants Diagram to 50% which looked much better, but going back to View it was not fully reproduced, just repeated parts of it. Saving the book as a RTF file for MS Word seemed to work without a problem but o...

This is my first venture into making a FH book from my data, apologises if some of these questions have been raised before. 1. What is the best way of creating a Descendant's diagram so that it reads well in A4? The one created from the Book & Booklets process needs a bit of tweaking. I was thinking...

Re: FH displaying incorrectly in "half-screen" mode

I have used it often. Using two screens would be better but splitting it is a good compromise.
