* On hold until 23 Oct 2024: Focus Window ~ Spouses and Children Tab

For Wish List Requests that need more work before they can be progressed to the Wish List, because after 3 months, discussions have not arrived at a clear specification of the requirement such that one or more Wish List items can be raised. Items On Hold that are not subsequently refined to a state suitable for the Wish List within a year by the OP or other interested parties will be closed. If the OP feels unable to progress the request, they should ask for volunteers among other interested users to assist.

On hold until 23 Oct 2024: Focus Window ~ Spouses and Children Tab

Post by AncestorAddict »

It would be useful to be able to add fields to this tab. In particular, the Baptism Field, as before 1837 births were not recorded but baptisms were. At the moment, all my births before 1837 are marked c.yyyy unless I found the actual dates in probate records or on gravestones. Thank you

The Focus Window already shows Baptism, Christening, Burial or Cremation events if there is no Birth or Death event.

If you are asking for multiple facts to be shown, where would they be displayed?
If there are many Children then multiple facts for each could get extremely congested.

Perhaps you are only talking about the Focus person and their Spouse?

I imagine you need the same feature for Burials for people buried before 1837?

Please confirm exactly what you are requesting for which persons in the Focus Window.

Anyway, if the Property Box is open to the right of the Focus Window then the relevant Facts are already shown there for the person in Focus and only just one click will show the same for any other person in the Focus Window.

If the All tab is open, then all Facts are shown.
If the Main tab is open, then it can be customised to show Baptism and Burial details along with Birth and Death details.

BTW: With a few clicks the Quick Family Facts plugin will display all those required Facts.

This can't be added to the wish List without significantly more detail, which Mike has asked for.

I read the OP as referring to these dates:

John, that's the Property Box, not the Focus window.

It is also not the Spouses and Children tab!

Assuming the OP used the correct terminology. But we'll never know as they haven't been seen since January.

On hold because we're waiting for the OP to clarify the requirement.
