Re: Moving FH settings to a new pc

Hi Mike Thanks for your advice, I think I was going wrong because I had not set the default back-up folder so it saved them where it wanted. I have tidied up the file structure and set the default backup folder but it still didn't work, kept telling me there was no data, whether I was using the subf...

Moving FH settings to a new pc

I have been following the Migration Guide to move my FH program and data to my new PC - very many thanks to Tatewise for the guide, otherwise I would have been totally stumped. The only problem is that I cannot restore the settings, as per item 7. I ran the plug in as per item 3, and it seemed to wo...

Re: 1939 Register on Find My Past

Thanks Adrian for the info re persons who were to be included. I haven't yet found my grandfather in the newspapers on FMP for the week in question, so I might "take a punt" and see if it is him if I need one set to make up my 5 family offer, but probably won't bother otherwise at the moment. I plan...

Re: 1939 Register on Find My Past

Were people registered at their home (electoral roll) address, or at the address they were at on 29th September? I am trying to find my grandfather, there seems to be only one candidate, assuming the birth year is reasonably correct, but he is not where I think he would have been living. However he ...

Re: GRO Registration Data & Place Data

I tend to leave the place and address fields blank, unless I am pretty sure that they coincide with the registration area. The quarter date is a clue and then I put the details of place, volume and page in the note. The people in my current project are born married and died in my village, but the re...

Re: Witnesses in Diagrams

Sorry not to have got back to you earlier, I have been very busy the last week.

Thank you very much for spelling out exactly what I had to do, I followed your instructions to the letter and it all works exactly as I wanted. :D

Re: Witnesses in Diagrams

Did you mean like this? =ExistsText(%INDI.BIRT[1+]%,"Born:") %INDI.BIRT[1+].DATE:COMPACT% in %INDI.BIRT[1+].PLAC:TIDY% (%INDI.BIRT[1+].ADDR%). It seems to have done away with the extra address items as desired, but also the 2 other witnesses. I have checked that I haven't inadvertantly also changed ...

Witnesses in Diagrams

Up until V6 I recorded witnesses in Notes in marriages, and created Events - witness, best man, etc -for those individuals carrying out these roles. These were then visible in the Diagram I usually use - 'All Events and Attributes, and Notes' (or my customised version). I have been going through the...

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I called them by different titles to indicate there were 2 types of residence fact, both of which needed to be read for a complete picture.

Re: Save 50% on a Find My Past Subscription

At least, Paypal tells me I have made a donation to AS, so I hope it has gone to the right place. The email fro...

I cannot open more than one instance using the icon, but I've found that I can open the second copy from the program on the start menu, and I can open more than one copy by going to the start menu rather than using the icon.
