Re: Importing Media From Find My Past?

Yes, that might help answer the question asked at the beginning of this thread. However the FMP tree would need to have those media links in place before creating a Gedcom. That means manually amending the media field in each case. In this case I suspect each media item has to be downloaded and link...

Re: Importing Media From Find My Past?

Actually I think we may be slightly at cross purposes here. I am looking at the FMP site rather than the hints within FH (where I agree completely with what you say). However working on the FindMyPast website I find that just accepting the hints on the website just attaches a link to the transcripti...

Re: Importing Media From Find My Past?

To explore this a little I created and downloaded a Gedcom from my FMP tree. I then imported this into a new FH project. My observations are: For the FMP records that I had linked to my tree a hyperlink was produced. The ones I tested from within the downloaded Gedcom linked to a page with a transcr...

Re: Residence at the time of marriage.

Hi Paula, may I add some reassurance. I too have much computer experience but found Family Historian daunting at first. This Forum has been immensely useful and supportive. What I particularly like is that FH uses a GEDCOM file as it's datastore. A file that can be read by many programs, with a vary...

Re: Contribute Your Knowledge Improvements

So the target audience is: users first attempting to add knowledge and experienced users needing a reference manual? How about a glossary - namespace might be unfamiliar to some.

Is there a need for review before public posting?

Just an update, have run the script successfully. Loaded into Roots Magic and looks good. Been too busy this week to progress further. Many thanks, think this will prove to be very useful.

Re: Parallel Family Historian and Ancestry trees

Hi Mark, thanks for your reply. I used Notepad++, guess maybe that's the cause.
Will start from scratch using notepad.

(I added the print statements to get some output as the batch file opened the command box which closed straight away)

The indexes available at http://www.gro.gov.uk for births to 1916 and deaths to 1957 are new transcriptions from digital copies of the relevant certificates. The indexes available elsewhere are from transcriptions of the original indexes.
