Re: Research Planner Version 2 -- request for beta testing

2 days ago I downloaded and installed RP Ver 2 with no problems (Windows 10 64 bit). Having spent about 2 hours playing (rather than testing) I have as yet to find anything amiss other than a few typo's. I will sit down tomorrow and use it 'in anger' and see how it goes. All in all it looks great!!

Re: FH Version 7

Updated as soon as I was prompted by MS. There were some drivers that needed to be updated after the install. Apart from that everything went smoothly.

Re: FH Version 7

I also have a 5 year old Sony Vaio laptop (not my main computer) model VPCEC3SOE. Updated from Win 7 to Win 10 with no problems at all.

Re: Born out of wedlock

ref; 'Doesn't cut the mustard' 'Unmarried couple' does not reflect the true event, they were never a couple. They had a 'romp' that resulted in the birth of an out of wedlock son. In the mid 1800's the High Church of Scotland took a very dim view! Yes, I have linked John to the uncle that took him i...

Born out of wedlock

I'm usually good at figuring things out for myself but am a little stumped. My 2x great grand father (James) was a bit of a naughty boy. He had a 'fling' with Jean whilst married to Margaret, which resulted in the birth of John (my great grand father). James and Margaret with their 4 legitimate chil...

Re: Clooz v3.3 gedcom

Just a question - if v3.3 is causing problems why not update Clooz to the latest version - 3.5.26?

GEDCOM 5.5.1

Did not quite know where to ask this so please do move it if needed.
Question - when or will FH adopt/change to GEDCOM 5.5.1. Are there any plans to do so?

Re: How to use a To Do list

Just to be different (and because I find them easier to use) I use Clooz to record all documents - Census, birth, death, marriage
certificates etc. To Do Lists and Research Logs live in Excel and any other scribbles, notes etc go into OneNote.

Re: 30% Discount?

Yep that worked - 25% discount. I will continue my free trial and make a decision then. I think Calico Pie need to update their webpages! Thanks for your help, much appreciated.

Re: 30% Discount?

Hmm, just read the small print: "To view the list of matching records, you don’t need to open an account with MyHeritage. But to view the records themselves, you normally will need a data subscription. If one is needed, when you click on the ‘View Record’ button to view a listed record, MyHeritage w...

30% Discount?

Just found this snippet of info tucked away "Family Historian users are automatically entitled to a 30% discount on MyHeritage subscriptions." I currently have a 14 day free trial of MyHeritage with 7 days left. How do I now get my 30% discount when trial comes to an end? I can find nothing about th...

Re: How to show the correct relationship?

Thank you both for the replies. I have Simon Orde's book and am slowly working my way through it. I've had the software for a week - a long way still to go ;)

How to show the correct relationship?

Good morning - I am brand new to this genealogy thing and have run into my first conundrum. How do I show the relationship of the unmarried parents of 1 child & the fact that the father later married another woman and had 5 children? James and Jean (not married) had a son John. James later married M...

Re: Licencing Question

Have now bitten the bullet and purchased a licence. After quite a bit of research (and playing around) I think I've made the right decision with FH. Now need some time to sit down and learn all of the ins and outs of the software.

Licencing Question

Being brand new to this Genealogy thing I have been trying 4 different software packages for the last couple of weeks and have decided on FH. So far I've gone back 5 generations, most are still a bit sketchy but I've caught the bug!! Before I make a purchase I have a question - can I install FH on 2...
