me, that may be an explanation for the broken family
is a Family as Child tag that ties the family together.
guessing that the PEDI & _PEDI (valid) tags have upset
the upgrade conversion and treated the FAMC tags as invalid
which therefore gain a prefix underscore.
I am familar with the green circle and have always used it in
Before I upgraded I copied V6 to FTM and all the connections
are there intact.
Checking my names again I find many more have become isolated
even my 2x great grand mother which doesn't even show my 2x
great grandfather, her spouse. It just says not directly
Checking my images I found these appear to have been removed.
They were there when I first posted a message. I was going to
look at the error message but all the images appear to have
Guess I will better use the back up version 6 and try to
upgrade again. Will do that later.
Here is another error message I got after my upgradel, see
attached. I haven't a clue what it means or how to rectify it

Victor, please read my previous reply
again. What I said was that you can still view the images
in your own external photo viewer in exactly the same way as
you could with FH6, by clicking the icon which is a green
circle with a black triangle in it. I don’t know why you
think you can’t.
Regarding the missing links between a few
people, absolutely nobody else has reported this problem.
They must have been accidentally disconnected either before
or after the upgrade, but it certainly wasn’t the upgrade
itself which caused it.
very name I have used are attached to other names. This has
been confirmed when I check them on FTM which I copy from FH
tyo FTM now and again. I am able to re attach the names
after checking FTM. Thes must have become detached when I
upgraded to F7
As you say I can look at the images in FH but these are
small sizes and when it comec to census images I have
rotated them to a vertical position whiuch is hard to read
on the FH viewer. Much better on my photo software as I can
totate it back to horizontal. The reason I rotate these is
so that when I prnt a narative report they are printed from
top to bottom of the page giving it a full view rather than
horizonatally across a page in smaller size.

Victor, if you have found some 'detached' children they
must have been detached in V6 before the upgrade. V7
definitely does not remove any family links! (I
say this in case anyone reading this is worried about
upgrading having read Victor's post).
Secondly, it is still possible to view images in your own
default photo software. The process is the same as it was
in V6, using the green circle icon with the black triangle
in it. That hasn't changed.

I did get a validation report and it listed 7 names of
children detached from their parents.
But I have discovered many names are now stand alone
that is not on a tree with no oter names to connect it.
Fortunately I have FTM and the names are on there
showing the connections. I then put the names it is
linked to. This is going to be a lot of work to restore
For the record I use FTM to give links to ancestry via
the hints. I don't subscribe to either of the hints
shown on FH.
I have also found a change oin viewing the images. In V6
when I prompt the images they appear of my photo
software and I can view them at any size I want. On V7
that doesn't happen and I can only view them on the FH
viewer at a small size
