Re: How do I browse for Plugins?

Hello Ron,
There is another way.
On the Family Historian program menu click on TOOLS, then Plugins, at the bottom of that pop-up click on Plugin Store.

Re: Date Filtering on Records window / Individuals tab

I also had problems with the Records Window - Individual - From Year To Year. With the threads of 2015 it helped a bit. Used dates either side of the birth date (1888 and 1890) for someone born 1888. But then I sorted the birth dates in descending order and much clearer to find a person when born. G...

FHUG Knowledge Base

Has FHUG Knowledge Base changed?
A few days ago I clicked on Knowledge Base and went to a list of How To topics.
Now the best I can get is Knowledge Base Index.
Have I forgotten something.

Re: differents person names for census

Thank you for that Mike.
Although what I wanted is what you say cannot be done, which is assign an Alternate Name to a Fact.
The person in question has different surnames in two different census and as yet cannot determine which is her birth name.
Many thanks though.
