Shared Note Records

There are workarounds for both problems. The notes can be restricted to the Husband by using the =TextIf() function in Expression : e.g. =TextIf( %INDI.SEX%='Male', %INDI.FAMS[1]>NOTE[1]>TEXT%, ) The Note paragraphs can be shown in full by using the =GetParagraph() function in Expression : e.g. =Get...

Ages for Driving License

The link below suggests that the minimum age for driving licences was reduced to 16 years between August 1918 and August 1921.

Is there a signature or an address on the licence?
Can these be matched up with any other documents?

OK - What is the difference between relative and absolute file links? Relative File Links These rely on the Media folder that is within the FH Project folder hierarchy. FH knows where this Media folder is on your PC. e.g. C:UsersMikeDocumentsFamily Historian ProjectsExampleExample.fh_dataMedia In Mu...

Adding Time and Weekday of Event

Yes, but it requires some changes to the default Fact sentence Templates . You cannot add a time to the Date field, so you must choose another field. There are two options: (1) Use the Note field, which is easy to access, but you want to reserve for other uses. (2) Use the Cause field, which is only...

Dagwood, Does FH treat the arrangement you describe as a Project i.e. does it appear in the File > Project Window list?

The relative path setting is the default for V4 Projects if you copy Multimedia image files into the Media folder or a sub-folder.
This is another advantage of using V4 Projects.

The FH LUA file system runs very slowly sometimes. In some situations it appears to have frozen FH in a 'hung' state.

Use of Projects

There is nothing magic about Projects . It is simply that FH creates a skeleton folder structure that it knows about. It still uses the same Gedcom (.ged) data file(s) that you would have used before. It still allows you to organise your Multimedia image files in your own folder structure, but prefe...

Peculiar auto text behaviour.

On further experimentation it is not a Method 2 problem - it applies to Method 1 as well. The problem arises only if text is deleted from the Auto-text box and no text is added. There are a couple of ways to confirm this problem: 1) Create Auto-text by pressing Auto button, delete some text from Aut...

You can do either, but must use Census > Census Flag Settings and assign a Flag to Wales 1901 and Wales 1911 .
