Re: Cannot install Plugin problem

I suspect that may be the answer.

I have registered now, whether its a second one or not I'll possible discover in due course if I have used a different email address.

Thanks again

Re: Cannot install Plugin problem

I should have mentioned that I did try and load a plugin that I did not already have, and it installed perfectly and was available on both devices. I haven't yet tried the Diagrams etc, but I will do shortly. I'm pretty sure I would have registered the product when I first installed it on my Desktop...

Re: Cannot install Plugin problem

Think I've worked out what the problem was. When I went to set up the Symbolic link, the "C:\ProgramData\Calico Pie\Family Historian" was completely empty, no subfolders at all - in particular no "plugins" subfolder. So the install almost certainly fell over for that reason. It is a more than a few ...

Re: Cannot install Plugin problem

That's got my Symbolic link set up. All Plugins (and reports etc) now visible. No need to install the Plugins. Looks as if I won't even need to run the Restore bit of the Back-up & Restore Plugin. I will check that however. All a bit strange, but seems to be OK now. Off to install AS now. Thanks Colin

Re: Cannot install Plugin problem

There is no "registered to" (on my Desktop or Laptop version). I bought from a third party supplier, not direct from Calico, not sure if that makes a difference! It does say Family Historian Version 6.2.7 at the very top. No there are no plugins listed. So far I have nothing restored. I was planning...

Cannot install Plugin problem

Just re-building my laptop after re-installing Windows. I previously had FH v6.2.7.0 running perfectly with files stored on One-Drive linked to my Desktop PC. I've re-installed FH (using the original disk and code). FH seems to be working perfectly, and I've got it working with the synced project. I...

Re: Create a Fact stating the 'Condition' of the Married Couple

Not quite sure that my question is exactly the same as this one, but this was the nearest I could find on searching the forum I'm looking for a way to mark a person as a bachelor (or a spinster) at death. This is a distinction from not knowing if they were married, in this case I know (as best as on...

Re: Sort Dates with no Links

Good question Or are they all a complete mystery and no longer required? I do try and read articles for myself, so I'm pretty sure I would have read about them first, and I've re-read about them. So they are not a Complete Mystery, but almost certainly a Partial Mystery. I am now ready to delete the...

Re: Sort Dates with no Links

Sorry Mike, I didn't fully understand the implication of the question. I believe I have used the Sort Date Plug-in in the past when experimenting. I uninstalled it, as I did not see any use for it at the time. It was part of a process to look at several plug-ins to see if they were of use/interest t...

Re: Sort Dates with no Links

Thanks Helen for your input too.

I've done a Filter on the Media Window with the word "Sort" which seems to have done the same as your Custom Query. Or is there a reason to do a Custom Query.

I now have all of my filtered Media records in a new Named List.

Re: Sort Dates with no Links

Morning Mike and thanks for the help. I assume you have used the Order Facts by Sort Date Plugin and wish to employ Sort Dates in some way? In fact I had simply sorted the Media Records window by Links . I had spotted that I had a single jpg Media Record entered twice, once with a link to a person, ...

Sort Dates with no Links

I have approx. 40 Sort Dates in my Media List with no links sort.jpg All the others have links, but these ones seem to be "orphaned". Should I delete them? I have tried a File> Validate but it reports 0 errors. So are they valid records? I've tried searching the forum, but the search ignores the wor...

Re: Fact type for Newspaper Articles and other assorted media

Thanks for responses. My research will be mostly in diagrams and reports for sharing with family. No plans for websites or any wider distribution. Tying them in with existing facts such as BMD or occupation does therefore seem to be attractive, with the catch-all "Newspaper Article" fact to sweep up...

Fact type for Newspaper Articles and other assorted media

I have a number of press articles (and other media) to be included, but no obvious fact type to enter them under. In one case I have a story about a train driver's 25 years in the role. That could possibly be entered as an occupation fact? A house fire destroying the whole property - could that be r...

Re: Multiple evidence of event

You've taken that single statement out of context from the whole discussion. It was you that raised the whole topic of "best genealogical practice" My point is I want best practice within FH so that I try to minimise because of painful experience with doing things in other ways. Such as discovering ...

Re: Multiple evidence of event

I take what you are saying, But I couldn't care less about best genealogical practice. I made my choice to work with FH, and that's what I want to learn to use to the best of my ability. If some of that goes against best genealogical practice, I have no problems with that. So I care what terms mean ...

Re: Multiple evidence of event

This discussion has grown a bit. It does strike me that we (and here I mean new/ less experienced users) all need a single document with clear definitions of what is a repository, what is a source, a citation etc etc. Many of the help files and the Calico book contain bits of this, but nowhere that ...

Re: Multiple evidence of event

Thanks to both of you. As it happens, I only have a small number (about 8) of these cases at the moment, and I had created 2 entries for each. I was beginning to think that combining them was the right way to go. But as I said earlier, I'd rather try and avoid issues in the future, so if keeping the...

Re: Multiple evidence of event

Thanks Mike for that additional help. This is what I love (and hate) about genealogy and FH. I do understand there is no "best" way and that what works for an individual is the best in practice. But there does seem to be a lot of variation as to what best should be. The problem is that without detai...

Multiple evidence of event

If I have for example, an image of an extract from Scotlands people of a birth entry and a birth certificate, what is the optimal way to handle it. I'm thinking that a single source should be created and the two media items should be attached to the single source. The alternative presumably is to cr...
