Deleting data for Living Persons

I have experimented with a technique to excluded all Facts for Living Individuals . It creates two copies of your GEDCOM , one with no Facts for everyone, the other with all Facts but no Living individuals, then these two GEDCOM files are Merged . The process is a bit long winded but produces what y...

Unable to create custom query

While you are familiar with the C:ProgramDataCalico PieFamily Historian folder structure, it would be wise to check that all the following folders have both a Custom and a Standard sub-folder.

Diagrams
Fact Types
Queries
Reports

Deleting data for Living Persons

The best approach is to set the Living flag on all Individual Records for people that are alive. You can also set the Private flag on Individual Records you want to exclude entirely. To start setting the Living flags, look at the FHUG Downloads that offer Queries and other techniques for managing li...

Hidden Sources - where / why have they gone?

Essentially yes, if you edit using PSPad, but see my later suggestion. You delete from the 1 RESI tag up to but not including the next tag line starting with 1 or 0 . However, Source ref @@S63@@ is not valid, and should not be copied. Now you know the records involved, and there are only a small num...

Hidden Sources - where / why have they gone?

It looks like you may have solved the problem. Please use PSPad to examine the .ged file and locate the problem 1 RESI tags. Search up from these tags to the first tag with 0 as the first character. Is this a 0 @F99@ FAM Family Record tag rather than a 0 @I99@ INDI Individual Record tag? If so then ...

Hidden Sources - where / why have they gone?

I have more questions than answers. Firstly, if I use PSPad to edit a .ged file and change a Residence 2 SOUR @S83@ tag to 2 SOUR @@S83@@ then it displays OK in the Events/Facts tab of FH 3.0.1/4.1.3 , but the Source pane shows the @S83@ reference but cannot open the Source. Have you any clues as to...
