Re: Source Types (usage of the FH field)

I was just wondering when Mike mentioned that Type was a Non Standard Gedcom extension, what others weren't standard to Gedcom in case I could dodge a bullet just now by making sure my information could be input slightly differently. Just like I said earlier Source title from Birth: to Birth Certifi...

Re: Source Types (usage of the FH field)

Thanks for that Mervyn. I was more interested in what doesn't transfer directly. When I moved over from FTM all of my information moved over, just not to the right places eg place names correct but addresses (Street names) into notes. That is why I decided to redo my tree rather than go through the ...

Re: Occupation - Date

In any death certificates I have, if the deceased is no longer working it has always said- Factory Worker (Retired) or similar. So my view would be that the person was still working, an example I can give is my Grandpa who worked in my dads factory until his late 70's even though he had retired as a...

Re: Source Types (usage of the FH field)

Beware that the Type field is a non-standard- GEDCOM extension unique to FH , so doesn't export to other genealogy products. If that information is important to be retained in all future incarnations, then it should be in a standard field such as the Note . Can I ask what other fields don't export ...

Re: Can't open FH

Have to say I used Trustier Rapport for years with no problems at all. RBS recommended it and offered it as a free download, but in the last year they sent an email out notifying me they were stopping using it and that I should Uninstall it. The reason given was that it gave no benefit now due to al...

Re: Viewing sources ?

If you are using a windows pc, right click on the image and pick open with Paint . When it opens, in the home screen there is an icon that says resize . Click on that and a small window will open and in that window change from percentage to pixels, there is also a Maintain Aspect Ratio tick box (mak...

You will have to open the photos in an image viewer and then resize them. I can't remember the size it has to be, but it is around 150-200kb

Re: Source Types (usage of the FH field)

Sorry if you thought I meant that the image I put up was about consistency, I thought it was how the developers meant the type field to be used (I presume it is just giving different examples). Consistency seems to be the call from most serious FH users and for that matter FTM or Rootsmagic. What I ...

Re: Source Types (usage of the FH field)

2019-09-30.png I am guessing this was how FH developers perceived the use of the Type field as this is the sources in the FH Sample Project. Consistency is the war cry from FH, there doesn't seem to be an exact science to what goes where as long as you put the same things in the same fields. Obviou...

Re: Grave stones

If you are convinced that it is the gravestone (rather than memorial etc.) of the specific relative, I would tend to think that is sufficient proof of death! Definitely know it is the right graves David, as I was at all of the funerals. By no proof of death I meant no certs. In these instances I wa...

Grave stones

I have a few photos of grave stones from a few dead relatives with their date of death, but I don't have any other proof of death and wondered the best way to enter the information into FH. By that I mean entering a source, type etc.

Re: Living/Private

I was just looking at the Heredis app for android and while doing so had a quick look at the Heredis 2019 demo. I noticed that you seem to be able to make everything private, from notes, to citations to a complete person and all with a tick box at each section. I can't comment on anything else about...

Re: Living/Private

Hi Mike 1 Didn't mean photo, meant image of Birth Certificate. That was why I said "I wouldn't want someone's birth certificate to accidently appear" 4 If they automatically hide living persons details, why might I not trust these sites to keep living people private? It was what I was meaning by the...

Re: Living/Private

Had that feeling when I asked Helen. I was just hoping that if a person was marked as private that I would be able to mark their certificates as private to stop them showing up by accident. Especially if I was going to upload the information online, I suppose it would be safer to mark as private and...

That is a bit odd, because Jane posts a This week's active discussion topics in the FHUG Forums every week.
That is the one I got for about three weeks, then nothing for about 4 weeks and then as I said it burst into life over the last couple of weeks.

Living/Private

Quick question but not sure how to ask it. If I use a birth certificate as a source with image for someone (child) and marked them as private and living and then also use the source for someone else (parent) who is now dead and not private. Would the image show up if I export a Gedcom with images an...
