Just in case it becomes of interest, the death Mike found for Charles Iverson is recorded in The GRO "Deaths Registered at Sea" index for 1911.

Re: Age at Burial

As a counter argument: Why are people so focussed on recording "Age at Burial" when the information recorded in Parish/Burial Registers actually records the age the person was believed to be when they died? It's irrelevant whether the deceased was buried on the day they died or at some time (days, w...

Re: FH constantly crashing after every entry in AS

@ KarenMG, Looking at your previous posts, it seems likely that you are using Family Historian (FH) and Ancestral Sources (AS) on a Mac, via Crossover/WINE. If that is correct and you have created separate FH and AS apps in Crossover then using AS on a datafile that is already open in FH will inevit...

Re: Editing source images?

And then there's also the need to straighten many images that have been poorly scanned by data providers which I would consider to be a necessary usability enhancement; as opposed to directly editing an image, which suggests making some alteration to the actual image content.

Re: On linux, Drag and Drop media to source crashes FH6.2

I agree with Colin, but it's certainly confusing that CodeWeavers chose Wine 3.14 (Development) when the 3.0.3 (Stable) was released shortly after and well before the final release of Crossover 18..0. My guess; and it is purely a guess, is that the reasoning behind settling on one specific version t...

Re: On linux, Drag and Drop media to source crashes FH6.2

According to information received from CodeWeavers, the version of Wine embedded in Crossover 18 is 3.14 (i.e. from the Wine Development Branch).

Re: Surnames for nobility from the Middle Ages

I suspect that the debate on what to substitute for a non-existent surname will have you and everyone else 'arguing' round and round in ever decreasing circles until we all disappear up our own trouser legs!

All 'Hints' systems use some form of 'fuzzy logic' which tend to give a broad range of 'matches' depending on the fuzziness of the logic!

Re: Crossover for MAC v18

Colin,

Also testing the 18 Beta 2 Version and everything seems as before. Doesn't seem to be much info. on what's actually changed in Crossover, but presumably it's using a more recent version of WINE plus some necessary tweaks for MacOS Mojave.
