Re: Research George Hook 1869

the free ones help. I have them in my research bag. I will start digging in. I have never found a piece of paper or image of anything with George Clarence Hook, Jr on it.

Re: fhoutputresultcolumn, align_mid, hex or pgm trick?

I have tried it.....geez, I would like to sharpen it up somehow. I understand it uses those preferences, and they are obstreperously general, thats rather why I thought I could tweak it with an expanded table of information. c=LifeDates2, EXT EstimateBirthdates, EstimateDeathDates e=Earliest,12 m=Mi...

I have used the Estimated... fns, using EARLIEST, LATEST, MID, and looked at them, not horridly impressed. from BIF("EBD")... Family Historian will use any dates it can in a person’s record for preference. If it doesn’t find any, it will normally check parents and children’s dates, and try...

Re: fhoutputresultcolumn, align_mid, hex or pgm trick?

Well, the upshot is, everything has been changed to courier new and a space is a space, a forced space is a forced space and size matters.

Mike, and anyone who wants to try: Everything I have in every setting is Courier New now, guaranteed mono space font...this is the code, trivial, and will work for anyone. note the number of forced blanks I need to use, and it still is OCDing me out.

Re: finding and parsing an attribute by TYPE

Mike, I will answer again, yes the query works, and I expect the new query will work better. The issue is that this is all a setup to write out a file to convert to PDF that will look more like an encyclopedia entry.

Re: GEDCOM 5.5.1

Among other things the LDS based FamilySearch has supported it since it came out, for all practical and real purposes, it IS the standard, only a few outliers do not support it, and lets face it, running unicode but not supporting 5.5.1 is sort of non-standard anyhow. it would be so much easier to d...
