Re: Backup & Restore error

Yes you are right, I have those two folders on OneDrive (I actually have more as I have AS & Images on there as well.). All are properly backed up as well. The net result is that I have in my FH folder alone, almost 7,000 files to synchronise (plus the other OneDrive non FH items). So although I don...

Re: Backup & Restore error

I've just tried running two other plugins which ran fine. Also just re-run Backup & Restore and it appears to be running fine.

Backup & Restore error

I had to install a new System Disk on my PC as the old SSD was too small. I deliberately chose to re-install Windows 10 rather than cloning the old disk to give me a nice clean new Windows 64 Install. After I reinstalled FH, I then created a link between the Prog Data Folder and my OneDrive folder [...

Occupation/Voluntary roles

I have a gentleman whose Occupation was Minister. I also know that at various times during his Ministry he undertook various additional roles, for example Superintendent of the General Hospital & Head of the Associated Charities, now the Board of Public Welfare These are not "occupations" but I have...

Occupation - Date

Sorry to keep asking silly questions. I did try searching the Forum but didn't find anything relevant. How do other users capture an occupation, when the source is a death certificate. If we have for example a 75 year old person whose occupation is shown as say "Factory Worker", it does seem somewha...

Family Fact - Residence

I can't work out how (assuming it is possible) to enter a Residence fact as a Family fact. I've got sources quoting where husband and wife lived.

I'm assuming it is possible to enter the fact as a family one, but how.

Re: Source & media naming

That looks similar to my method but with the order of the naming reversed.

Re: Source & media naming

I like that idea,
This is distinct from the file name - which I tend to leave well alone - despite the temptation to make it descriptive.
Will think about that

Re: Source & media naming

I split my data, I took that decision on day 1, having read a bit of background, and it seems to suit me fine. As I was only giving examples for a different purpose, I did not fully explain the meanings of the naming plan. In my case, when Source Naming, the words "Birth", "Death" & "Marriage" are r...

Source & media naming

When I started, I decided to name sources like this below Marriage 1908 12 03 William McGillivray - Christina Bethune M Cert 1897 07 15 John Clunie - Anne McDonald Imm 1917 04 02 Howard G Barrie This keeps similar sources together, and sorts by date. However I've also used the same method for naming...

Re: Grandchildren with unknown parents

Must admit I like this idea I tend to put in an unnamed child with a note saying this is one or more of XYZ (the known children) but I don't know which yet; and then attach the grandchildren to that unnamed person -- that way they show up as individuals and are less likely to get overlooked as candi...

Grandchildren with unknown parents

I have a press article that tells me that a lady is survived by 5 daughters. It later adds that she has three grandsons and one grandaughter. I know the names and husbands of all 5 daughters, and I know the name and parents of one grandson. So all possible parents are in the tree already. How is it ...

Template Codes

After spotting a typo in a Sentence, I've been editing a fact definition to correct it. However as part of the same sentence, I am getting two squares appearing in my "actual" sentence, in two separate positions, which indicates to me some kind of font problem. On checking the Fact Definition, (News...
