Data sourced from family memories.

My friend John Piper, for whom I am researching, has a written account of his family's collected memories, typed into a Word document by his two sisters with the help of their mother before she died. It contains considerable useful information relating to dates, locations and events, and a lot of it...

Re: Gedcom file confusion

Many thanks once again, Mike, your explanation solves it all. The missing "Family" was just me typing the name wrongly in the post. Once again, you have solved the problem, clearly and concisely. I'm sorry to be such a pain asking what proves to be the obvious but I simply haven't had the time to re...

Re: Gedcom file confusion

Thanks, Mike, it seems to work OK.... I wonder if you know how I can load an old version of Family Historian saved as a back-up some months ago, without FH6 loading all the recent stuff. I need to do this in order to check whether certain files existed in the project at that time. Is this possible? ...

Gedcom file confusion

Re: Adding person to census.

Hi Mike, and many thanks for such a quick reply.

Yes, I think I am using Method 1 as my source record titles are long.
I assume that is the default.
And yes, I use Linked Images, Add/View Images option all the time.
And yes I do use the auto text to create the automatic text option.

Anyone any idea as to what is the easiest, simplest way to add a person to the census data as created by Ancestral Sources? I have missed a relative whilst entering census data, as I have a policy of not entering non-related individuals such as servants and lodgers into the software list of individu...

Having just returned from a long break, including holiday touring abroad, I'm now struggling to re-associate my ageing mind with FH6 and its plug-ins, and all my previous work, in order to fulfil my promise to my good friend and complete his family history. So please bear with me, if I'm asking a da...

Re: Saving marker sets

Amen to that, I still have a very heavy DOS manual, amongst others, from the pioneering days.
Lost count of the times my friend John has retorted, "RTFM!!" in reply to "How do you.....etc.,"
Also, I never realised Apple was bad at manuals.

Yesterday, with the help of Mike and Lorna, and Mike's excellent Search and Replace plugin, I managed to get to grips with the intricacies of place geocoding and now I am making sure that all of my places are in the exact right place on the map. Also, I decided to colour code sets of markers based o...

Thank you both, very helpful indeed. The refresh geocoding trick worked perfectly. I was having a bit of a problem as I had forgotten how to make the markers portable, but now I have remembered how and all is well. I must say, that as far as genealogical software is concerned, this FH6 is the creme-...

Multiple addition of place country.

My list of places has been designed to use 4 columns only, with no country, as they are all in England except one. Unfortunately, I have now discovered that the geolocation program puts many of them in the USA. (What would my grandfather have thought?) So now I have added the fifth column (he would ...

Re: Organisation of media folders

Thanks Mike, you put a very good argument together for not creating the folders, so I will leave it for the software to sort.
It seems to be the sensible thing to do given how well FH6 has been designed.
