Re: Lookup Ancestry BMD Records

Thanks Colin
I have no wish to edit the text it is all fine as it is so an image will do.
If I ever decide to edit it I could type what it said and then delete the image though it is unlikely that I will do.

Re: Lookup Ancestry BMD Records

When I talk about screen capture that is only what has been transcribed on ancestry. This includes baptisms where there is no image available. How you regards the GRO index is fine. I think of it as secondary simply because it is not an image. The image itself is primary. There are errors and omissi...

Re: Lookup Ancestry BMD Records

Apologise for including this in the other thread I was just thinking in terms of BMD and also to show an alternative which others may not be aware of. As to the source record I don't regard the GRO index as a real source record. I treat these as secondary or even questionable information (depending ...

I then go to the person on FH and under birth use the media to copy and paste what I have saved on snap my screen. I don't have to ty...

Re: Back up options

Mike Thinking about all the files with an X it just means the images are no longer in my computer. Most of them are census images. So I have a choice of either deleting them all or downloading the images from Ancestry. Fortunately I wont have to do a systematic search as I have FTM. As you probably ...

Re: Back up options

That is a shame, but probably not a disaster, and warrants an explanation, some advice, and a few more questions - Sorry!

Re: Back up options

Sorry looks as if I misunderstood your message The highlighted folder should have the name Markham 2c I thought that meant for me to create a new folder. I never had such a folder before even before I moved things to SkyDrive. Until a week or so ago I was able to back up with all three options. That...

Re: Back up options

Thanks for the explanation Nick about One Drive. I have this on my mobile. I have just tried to update so will now wait for One Drive to arrive and download automatically.

Re: Back up options

I have now carried out changes. The revised screen shot is shown here. I am not sure about this.... I suggest renaming the highlighted folder, and move all its contents down into Markham 2c.fh_data folder. You will also need to create a plain text file called Markham 2c.fh_proj with contents: Code: ...
