Re: Quick Screen Recorder - Free

I've found a better alternative - it's OBS Studio - free and open source from https://obsproject.com Tools | Output Timer lets you define the duration of the recording so you can stop recording at the end of the video and it makes nice compact .mkv video files to watch later on your PC (I use VLC Me...

Re: Is it still possible to order a death certificate as a PDF??

thanks, Mike and David! That's very helpful as I now understand that the reason there's no pdf option is that the death for which I wanted to order a certificate was in 1960 and so outside the range 1837-1957.

Is it still possible to order a death certificate as a PDF??

I understand from https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/images/CG5.pdf that it's possible to order certificates as PDFs with the benefits of getting them a) more cheaply and b) more quickly, however, when attempting to order a certificate at https://www.gro.gov.uk I only see postal options...

Quick Screen Recorder - Free

I'm impressed by Quick Screen Recorder which saves audio and video from your screen as an avi file. Useful for recording all those informative videos to watch later!!! https://github.com/ModuleArt/ A nice feature is that it supports two screens, so you can select which screen to record from and spec...

List Individuals linked to a Source

Looking at an Individual's window, I can see from the All tab what Sources are linked to that Individual.

How can I go the other way, eg. for a particular Source, see to what Individuals it's linked? Ditto from Notes, Repositories, Submitters, Media and Places?

Thanks

Adding possible ancestors to FH

I've found some possible ancestors but have not yet found the proof that they are "my" ancestors. It occurred to me that I could add them with the appropriate relationship eg. Father, Mother, Sibling but record their name with question marks to indicate that it's not yet proven, eg. record Jill Doe'...

Duplicate Spouse Records

After a pleasant hour of entering ancestor census records with Ancestral Sources, I seem to have ended up with an ancestor, William Chandler, with a spouse Louisa Newton and a child, George. A second spouse tab for William contains another Louisa Newton with William and Louisa having 12 children, (n...

Thanks all.

Entering wife's maiden name and citation in Ancestral Sources

A couple of questions on Ancestral Sources, 1. When entering a family group, is it best practise to enter the wife's name as per census (generally her husband's surname) or, as I believe would be preferable, her maiden name where known. If not known, or not certain, should it be left blank or marked...

Re: Evidence Explained citations and Evidentia

Thank you Jan. Mike Hait's blogs look interesting and I'll work through them in more detail later. I take your point that much of what's in Evidence! is also in the first two chapters of EE so I'll probably stick with that! I've downloaded Working with Historical Evidence:Genealogical Principles and...

Re: Evidence Explained citations and Evidentia

Thanks, Jan, for the comments. I did buy the EE as e-book in the end, and can view on Kindle for PC but have to admit I've not made much inroads into it yet. I'm sure I'll understand more once I've finished the first two chapters. I'll check out your other suggestions when I have a moment :- - Evide...

Yes, I see that the contents are summarized under the Book Content tab, and a small number of sample pages are available. I may get the whole book at some point but for now it might just be overkill. At least I've managed to get kindle for PC working. It's a shame that the ESM book and Quicksheets a...
