Backtracing Links

Post by evinther » 19 Nov 2020 08:29

Hello,

A newbie question.

I've migrated to FH from Legacy Family Tree and there Notes are an attribute of an Individual and not an independent entity that can be linked to. In Legacy I've made quite a lot of Research Notes like "Verify his birth in Church Records". As these notes in Legacy are an attribute of a particular individual, there is no doubt about whom the subject is, but now in FH i see these notes in the Notes List and wonder how can backtrace to the individual that links to the note?

Regards
Erik

Select the note you're interested in and select View > Record Links... from the menu at the top of the programme.

Not all Notes are standalone records -- you can also create Notes that are 'local' to a single individual.

If you want to see some approaches to creating tasks like 'Verify his birth in Church Records' look at Knowledge Base > Planning and Tracking Your Research

If those 'linked' Note records are only linked to one Individual record then there is a Plugin that will move them to be local to that Individual. See Clean Up Notes in the Plugin Store.
