Re: Sources and their links

Maureen Mitchell <wheatroyd@...>

HI john, 

I had this problem a little while ago and found this on the FH website.   It's easy and works very well:

  • Select the Source in the main Records Window under the Sources
  • Open up the View menu and select Record Links….
  • The Record Links Dialogue will appear showing all individuals with Citations linked to this source.
  • By selecting one Individual in the Record Links dialogue it is possible to go straight to the properties for that individual by clicking on the Go To button.

Hope this helps

I am in the process of doing a long and laborious tidy up of my FH data as over the years I have managed to adopt several different naming styles for sources and I now have a system I am really happy with so I am trying to get everything in the same format.

I have a problem in that some of my earliest entries were very sloppy so I have for example a source in the records window merely titled "general internet search" ( I,m sure we have all done it !!). Now that source is shown as being used as a citation ten times. Problem I have is I cant work out how I find the ten individuals that the citations relate to?

I,m guessing that as usual I have missed something obvious but is there an easy way to find where a source has been used directly from the records window ( or is there a query etc?)

Thanks in anticipation of the help I always receive.
