Re: Showing CustomID in the Focus Window

As you guessed there are duplicate records one related and one not. I have deleted the one not related and that resolves that problem. The duplication probably crept in when I merged two trees so I will be checking the root ends of my tree to see if there are any more.

Re: Showing CustomID in the Focus Window

Mike With my limited knowledge of FH I think I am getting in over my head. I tried running the query that you mentioned with some surprising results, e.g., my eldest son was put into a pool on his own and I am pretty sure he is related to me.

Showing CustomID in the Focus Window

First of all let me state that I am a rank beginner with FH - I started to use it in earnest yesterday - so please forgive me if I use the incorrect terminology. An important part of my family history file is the CustomID and I really would like it to be visible wherever I am editing records. I have...
