Re: Recording DNA matches in Family Historian

I am taking a completely different approach to identify in Family Historian (1) which people have taken a DNA test (2) marking the paths of proven DNA matches back to the common ancestors. (1) I have a flag "DNA" which in diagrams switches on a DNA helix logo beneath the boxes of people that have t...

Privatise Photos

I know that you can keep information private by using [[ ]], but how can I keep 'some' photos private? I definitely don't want all to be private, but there are a few which I want to keep in my database, but not have print on any reports, be part of any webpage or export. (I have searched and searche...

Re: Urgent Merge & Compare question

Thanks Mike. I am even considering making a training video on the Merge , as I am running a small Family Historian User Group here in Rockhampton and no doubt someone else will do it at some point. I'll let you know on the progress. Yes, you are correct I have created an upgrade disk and attempted t...

Re: Urgent Merge & Compare question

Yes thanks Mike, I have tried all of those. It's so annoying but my older and smaller netbook has done the upgrade perfectly! By the way my workaround for the Merge and Import seems to have worked. I am now waiting for the Win10 update to restart (not quite sure exactly when it is going to happen an...

Re: Urgent Merge & Compare question

Thanks Mike! Yes, I have already delayed the update as long as it is possible. I don't believe there is a way to further delay it, although I found some chat about stopping the updates altogether for a short period, but unfortunately I have Windows 10 Home which doesn't have the right components to ...

Re: Urgent Merge & Compare question

Ok...it's amazing how panic can clarify the mind! I have realised that there is a workaround to my dilemma - I can bulk Unmatch and Discard all the of matches I haven't checked yet, then let the Merge go ahead. After the Windows 10 has done its thing I can Import & Merge the new file again. All the ...

Urgent Merge & Compare question

Help please!

Re: Advice Needed from TMG Users Who Switched to FH

My journey from TMG sounds remarkably similar to Nigel Brown and I agree with everything he has said. I really loved TMG and continued to use it for quite a while, but the number of crashes and issues made me scared that one day something would happen and I would be stuck, so I ran both side by side...

Re: DNA link - show on diagram

I use Mike's method to produce exactly what I think you are looking for (with redactions for privacy). Chart.JPG All those with yellow highlight boxes have matching segments of DNA. Note the lines shown here are not all the descendants, only those who have done a DNA test, (although of course I coul...

Re: FH TMG Direct import issues following V6.0.1

Mike - you mention in #6 that it would be easy to create a Plugin to move coordinates to the LAT/LONG fields...how much effort would this be? I am having this issue with my coordinates, and, although I 'could' just manually re-enter them all (a couple of hundred), I would prefer not to, if it didn't...

Re: Saving Contact Info for Living People

I like the idea of this Mike, and installed the components, but am not sure what I didn't do correctly, as I cannot update the Contact Tab details. It shows the field names, but no field boxes to fill in. I thought there might be a 'fact' to add the details...what have I done wrong?
Thanks!
