create subset including witnesses

Hello to all,

I want to create a subset of my database like "all the relatives of" but this does not show the witnesses of these relatives. I tried a lot of queries, but did not find any that includes the witnesses.
How should I achieve this ?

Thank you,

Olivier

Re: Custom query to export subset to GEDCOM

Tentative workflow I've been using "focus group" in TMG just for convenience. Still without detailed insight of all the functionality of FH, it looks to me that using i) a custom query finding the right people and ii) putting them into a named list before iii) exporting the GEDCOM would b...

Re: Possibility to add witnesses from witness screen

Thank you for raising this as it has been on my mind previously. I use Witness events a lot as I find them extremely useful and generally those witnesses mentioned as God Parents, Marriage witnesses, Best Man and Bridesmaid are not in my database but are either close friends (Associates) or possibl...

[Wish List 634] Possibility to add witnesses from witness screen

I use baptism and marriage witnesses a lot. When I want to input a witness that is not in the database, I I need to first create a new record for the witness (as an unrelated individual) before I can add him or her from the add witness screen . It would love if I could add the witness as a new recor...

Re: Application language

This seems to me that this could be a request to allow users (perhaps via something akin to, or an extension of, the Language Pack concept) to customise the language of the FH user interface. I think this would have an important impact on the sales of FH, especially in countries like France and Ger...

using AI to classify images

Hello to all,

If ever you need to classify lots of images into different categories, like documents, portraits, family pictures, crests, etc, I recommend you to go and look at https://www.nyckel.com/ that can do the job for you.

Re: bug when exporting media URL in gedcom ?

Hello Mike, It seems that at some point FH V7 has added direct support for URL in the Media record File field that was not provided in earlier FH versions. That makes the Add Media URL Shortcut plugin redundant for FH V7. It is impossible to include an URL directly in a media record, as far as I kn...

Thank you, Mike. I discovered, and understand that this plugin creates a shortcut file that contains the URL.

bug when exporting media URL in gedcom ?

Hello to all, and Happy New Year! FH allows to define an URL as media (via the plugin Ad media URL shortcut ) and that is excellent. Among others, it allows to link an individual to URL's , something that is used in many genealogical programs. But, these URL's are not exported correctly in Gedcom: f...

Re: Transkribus and Parrot

Has anyone else tried Transkribus ? Yes. I used Transkribus on old (1700-1750 ) hand-written documents in Luxembourgish and French, and It helped me a lot in deciphering these documents; It does not recognise everything, but enough to understand the general meaning of some acts. Of course it depend...

Re: Check For Possible Duplicate Media (FH7) plugin - first prototype

Olivier, please confirm you are using DupeGuru Contents scans . No Mike, I used the " picture mode", and the "contents " scan type. This leads to about 240 duplicates with a match of 99 % or more. If I use the standard mode and the "contents" scan type, I have 16 dupli...

Thanks for that Olivier. I expect that any issues with accents will be fixed in the next update, due before the holidays.

Re: Check For Possible Duplicate Media (FH7) plugin - first prototype

Thanks for that, Olivier. The link you provided confirmed what I thought the cause was. If DupeGuru can write a list of duplicates to file, it may be possible for a separate bespoke plugin to read that list and process the duplicates. However, that's outside the scope of what we are doing here. Tha...

It would help if you could give a specific example of a duplicate that you think the plugin is not spotting, please. Looking at the DupeGuru description, it also claims to spot similar but not identical images. Is that’s what’s happening here? Most projects will contain lots of very similar documen...

Re: Check For Possible Duplicate Media (FH7) plugin - first prototype

I believe DupeGuru is looking directly at files, not FH Media record links to files. I have no unlinked files. All the files I found by dupeguru are linked. Like you say, Mike, dupeguru is comparing the files themselves, not the FH links to the files. That seems to be the best way to find duplicate...

I tested it, and got 12 duplicates, from which 4 with a message saying file missing. I also get a warning that accented characters may cause an issue.

Re: TNG and FH event witnesses standoff

Olivier and Adrian, I think that the word 'of' is being used too much. It would certainly be reasonable to remove 'of' from before the family couple hyperlinks. I can easily do that. However, what about the 'and' between the family couple hyperlinks? That won't get translated either. Is it really a...

I'm very sorry to disagree with you Olivier, but this is not the sort of output I would be looking for.
