Have you checked all the events relating to that place


Also it is useful before you import a gedcom file into your project to import it into a new empty file and run a few quick checks before you do the main import

Subject: [family-historian] Help with finding links to source


Hello, I’m at a loss at to what to do with this result set being empty.

In the first screen shot (sources to links) you can see that the fifth column says there is a link to one record. My assumption is that link is to an individual…


For 99% of the sources in my database (most imported from gedcoms from other researchers) clicking on Query  to individuals linked to source gives me the name or names of individuals in my db.

However in one percent of the queries I get no individual names, as in this instance – last screen shot Individuals linked to source.


Am I out of luck because the original source citation wasn’t linked to an individual or is my newbie status as an FH user showing my naivete in finding and using an alternate way of finding the source link to an individual in my db?
