Re: Errors

Victor Markham


I have just done another check. This time checked all the names I worked on when adding the census details v AS. I found all those names have disappeared. There were 6 of them.

Sorry I don't have a clue what to do about FAMC and those other references you mentioned

I will keep the exception log.

There are several oddities about that Exception Report.

None of the 2 _SHAR lines has a @I123@ link to an Individual record as the Shared Fact Witness.

The _FAMC should be FAMC and that explains why the Family as Child links are all broken.

There was an error reported last month that involved FAMC and PEDI/_PEDI  tags that was never resolved.

I suggest you preserve as much evidence of the errors as possible, i.e. Exception Log and GEDCOM.

It opened up on my name with no other family connections shown. I checked my brother and father details they too were alone.

I have also checked other names it appear they have all become stand alone names

Looks as if all names on my tree have become isolated
