Re: A simple to-do list

I have to say a simple to-do list would be nice, but I have now looked at the Named Lists recommended to me on here and have to say that between them and a separate Family Tree- Outlook To-do list are more than enough for me. I can live with working this way if no Task/to-do list ever appeared.

Re: Fact Management ????

This was one of the reasons for my re-do. When I transferred from FTM, about 1/3 of the addresses transferred into the Note field in FH and 2/3 transferred into the Address field even though the Place's transferred okay. I would imagine it's the reason Genealogy software manufacturers like to give y...

But there are significant costs both for VMWare Fusion (£70+) and Windows 10 (£100+) on top of the FH licence.
Wow, almost cheaper buying a Windows laptop just to run FH.

Re: Merge 2 projects

Thanks for that Mike, I was hoping someone was going to say that. I had quite a few things that appeared in the wrong place when I imported my Gedcom, maybe just a difference in where/how FTM and FH stored things. I presumed in this case that it was me who made the mistake when choosing the wrong So...

Merge 2 projects

Hi all Is it easy to merge 2 projects? I have been re doing my tree as many of you know. I haven't added any of my wife's family as yet, so the tree so far stops at her. Now I know that it is better to make one tree which is my intention, but here's my dilemma, my wife and my family although not rel...

Should I halt the ReDo?

After the announcement of FH7 I was thinking of putting my tree re do on hold as I am not to far in and wouldn't mind making some changes to what I have already done. I was thinking about tidying up the tree I imported from FTM and restarting my redo once I had a look at FH7. What are other peeps vi...

Re: FH on Mac or Unix

With you all the way Colin, with what you say about FH. As I said, if I used Mac I would never have looked at FH, I would have been using either FTM, Heredis etc. and looking at Rootsmagic when it came out with its native version. For the same reason that I have not look at a MacFamilyTree as I am W...

Sorry guys but I hope FH don't start to spread themselves too thin trying to please everyone, CP are not a huge company with lots of developers.

Re: My Heritage Hints not working

I see, Mike. I presumed that if I refreshed the hints it would clear the cache and replace with the updated hints only from FindMyPast. I was thinking that MH was working again as I wasn't getting those hints last week, my mistake.

Re: My Heritage Hints not working

I just started getting hints from MyHeritage again, when I click on the link it shows me the hints and then when I go back to look at FindMyPast hints the counter has removed the MyHeritage hints and they are no longer available. Has anyone else noticed this?

How does 7 look? Any news of release dates?

I am just wondering as a spill has rendered some of "Getting the most of" book useable but not great and no point in getting a new copy if FH7 is coming out and a new "Getting the most of".

Re: Splitting my husband's side of the family away from mine

Jane If you just want to show (rather than pass on to someone) then if you just use the diagram window to view it select your husband and then view All Relatives Diagram it will show you but none of your family and vice versa. The same goes if you use the focus window and make your husband the focus...

Thanks for that Mervyn. I was more interested in what doesn't transfer directly.

That is why I decided to redo my tree rather than go through the ...

Re: Occupation - Date

In any death certificates I have, if the deceased is no longer working it has always said- Factory Worker (Retired) or similar.

Re: Source Types (usage of the FH field)

Beware that the Type field is a non-standard- GEDCOM extension unique to FH , so doesn't export to other genealogy products.
