Re: "C:\output" folder deletion

First, about the links. Here is EXACTLY what I did, step by step: Open FHUG and go to Knowledge Base Home. Search "pdf" in the knowledge base search box. Click on the link which is called "Utility ~ PDF To Image File Converter" Read the article called "Description". Note that the first link is for f...

Re: "C:\output" folder deletion

Quote: "I used the Knowledge Base > Download." I thought I did, too, Mike. However, I will have another look at it later. There are two links on the page. In the meantime, the resulting "C:\output" folder and its contents were hidden from Windows even though it could be accessed. It could not be del...

"C:\output" folder deletion

I downloaded some newspaper articles from FindMyPast which I have stored in pdf format on my PC in the F:\ drive inside a family history folder. Knowing that the Family Historian software won't accept pdf files I had been using screen copies to create media files. However, I read an article in this ...

Adoption and relative links

I have read the articles on adoption and I think I understand them alright. But I have a slight problem. In 1896 my grandfather Arthur married a girl, born Henrietta Hackett in Manchester to an Irish Catholic family but who was adopted and brought up by the Green family in Nantwich, Cheshire after t...

Re: Linking a fact to an html file

The issue has been successfully dealt with and solved. I have created several internet links in the media tab of the Source file using Mike's plug in. I also saved many images as media records and linked them to Facts and Source records as well as the Individual media tab. I then copied the entire t...

Re: Linking a fact to an html file

Yes, Mike, that and others. What happened was that John sent me a large folder containing many photos and some saved Google Chrome pages with their associated files. One was the link to that page which you have discovered. The image for that, ie the Mirror front page, is easy to deal with by just sa...

Re: Linking a fact to an html file

Hi Mike, I have since found some other online links to this story, and I am currently examining them. I cannot get hold of John, (he has a garden and I do not) so I will have to wait until he decides to answer the phone so that I can talk to him to let him know what I have found. Quite frankly, I am...

Re: Linking a fact to an html file

Sorry about the delay.....things to do etc. I realise that one could save the image and then copy and save the text. This is what I suggested to my friend John for whom I am creating this project. However, he has a perfectly justifiable reason for wanting the newspaper article in the project as prin...

Linking a fact to an html file

We have an HTML file from a web page which contains a newspaper article whereby Eric Piper was the photographer when John Pilger filed a World Exclusive as he came across the Killing Fields of Cambodia in 1979. I have tried in vain to attach the article as media to the Source which is linked to the ...

Re: Linking photographs

Thanks Mike, a very explicit and easy to follow guide. Now I get it all, including what Lorna was hinting at with her third method. I am finding it fairly straightforward now through studying how the software works rather than just doing the tasks. I should have done that in the first place instead ...

Re: Linking photographs

I do understand the file structure, the media record and linked...

Re: Linking photographs

Thanks for pointing that out, David. Yes, I already knew that, and perhaps I should word my posts a little more carefully. Half of my problems arise out of trying to do what ought to take three years into one because of my need to get the project finished while both John and I are still here. I wish...

Thanks, Lorna, and I hope you are well and staying that way. Maybe I am a little too old for all this, or just plain dim, so please bear with me while I explain why I am completely confused and losing heart. At times, I wish FH6 would all go away, but I promised my friend John to complete it, so I'm...

Now to my topic: I have spent most of the morning reading posts and the knowledge articles regarding the addition of photographs, but I am afraid that I am just even more confused, and I ha...

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...
