Re: How to copy an ID record

Mike Tate
 

Hi Marjon,

I don’t know where this message from early September has been hiding but it just arrived today.

It is also best to start a new topic with a new message with a new Subject line.

 

Presumably, that relative does not have Family Historian installed.

 

So with the Diagram open, use Diagram > Save Diagram As > PDF File (.pdf) and accept the defaults.

You can then attach that saved PDF file to an Email message sent to your relative (assuming the file is not too large).

Virus checkers are notorious for blocking software that isn’t (in their estimation) widely used, or which by total coincidence matches a pattern they’ve identified as a threat in another piece of software.  It is perfectly safe to unblock it.  If it was genuinely unsafe, this list would have been flooded with reports!

Hi,

I have already posted this topic but just to follow up as I haven't had a reply yet.
I realised afterwards that my Avast antivirus programme had detected a threat with its Ransomshield and asked if I wanted to block it, which naturally I did.
I have since checked Avast and found that the Family Historian program is on the blocked list.
Is it safe to unblock it? How did FH manage to pose a threat?

Regards,

Don

I am running Windows 10, Family Historian 6.

For some reason it has stopping me saving my projects. I get the error message 'Unable to save. Access denied'. I haven'y altered anything so I'm puzzled as to why this is happening.

Re: Alternative Ancestors

Neill
 

Hi Mike,

 

Thanks for the info

Much appreciated

 

I have now actually decided to use just Historian on my Laptop to store everything and back up a copy

So once I have made various updates, I delete my Tree on Ancestry and upload the new gedcom file, then the site refreshes and I can then check any new hints found

As you know FindMyPast, MyHeritage are already linked to Historian so they will automatically look for new hints when I add a new person.

This works very well for me.

 

Kind Regards

 

Neill

Hi Neill,

FH only offers the embed option to be compatible with the GEDCOM 5.5 specification.

Nowadays, no products use that feature and always have media files separate from the GEDCOM file.

 

Online trees such as at Ancestry, FindMyPast, MyHeritage, ZoomPast, etc, do not allow bulk uploading or downloading of files linked to a GEDCOM file.

There are workarounds in some cases as explained in the FHUG Knowledge Base.

 

For importing downloads from other products see Importing to Family Historian:

https://www.fhug.org.uk/wiki/doku.php?id=how_to:index#importing_to_family_historian

 

For exporting from FH to other products see the Export Gedcom File Plugin:

https://www.fhug.org.uk/wiki/doku.php?id=plugins:help:export_gedcom_file:export_gedcom_file

Review its Output Formats for products that interest you:

https://www.fhug.org.uk/wiki/doku.php?id=plugins:help:export_gedcom_file:output_formats

 

You will discover that each product has its own interpretation of GEDCOM with its own variants.

The above guides explain how to cope with those variations.

The core features of GEDCOM are usually OK but some details leave something to be desired.

Hi Mike,

 

Brilliant thank you

 

While you are on

Do you know why FH software gives the option to embed photos/documents in to a Gedcom file for export but online sites will not accept the imported file

They appear to only accept Gedcom file where the photo/documents are links.

Also I cannot see any Photo’s after the Gedcom file has been uploaded using the link option

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Re: Can I view a family as shown in a Census? (ex TMG user)

Mike Tate
 

Rob,

If you have not run the plugin and requested changes, then it does not affect your Project database.

Any improvement is purely coincidental. Maybe you just discovered how to use some FH features.

It is still highly recommended that you follow the advice and convert to GEDCOM standard CENS facts.

However, this is best discussed in the FHUG Forums.

Mike, 

After reading your email of 1 Sep 2020, 10:07 I think I now understand how my TMG census event structure doesn’t match the way FH works.

I followed the fhug link you gave me https://www.fhug.org.uk/wiki/doku.php?id=how_to:import_from_tmg.

From there, under Import Discussions, I followed the link to Census details import to Family Historian 5 from TMG April 2014 ~ Witness and UK Census problems

This was your reply to another ex-TMG FH newcomer who had a similar problem to mine.

In this document, you explained that my census event tags used the EVEN tag whereas FH uses CENS and suggested using your Change Any Fact FH Plugin to change them.

I downloaded this and Lo and Behold all my “missing” census people instantly appeared. I don’t understand how this happened without my having to request action from the Plugin, but I am very pleased with the result.

Maybe you could enlighten me on how the Plugin works? I’m interested to know.

Thanks again,

Rob

Hello, I've been 'testing' the output to HTML for a site

I wondered if it was possible to have a 'places' page as well as individuals.
I'm trying to focus on places as a kind of framework for looking into the family.

The statistics page knows how many media there are, but is it possible to have a media page?

Re: Places or media page possible?

Mike Tate
 

Hi Mark,

I guess it depends on what you mean by “is it possible”?

Yes, it is possible, but it is not a feature built into the FH Publish > Create a Website wizard.

You would have to write a Plugin to compose the HTML pages and merge them into the FH generated pages.

 

The ‘Improve Website or CD DVD HTML’ plugin performs similar tricks adjusting the FH generated pages.

 

See the FHUG Knowledge Base on Make a Family Tree CD/DVD or Website for ideas:

Sorry, where I said "review", I should have said "accept or reject".  Simply opening, looking at and closing the hint will leave it at pending in both scenarios.

Re: User Defined Fields In Custom Fact

Mike Tate
 

Hi Chris,

No, it is not possible to create custom user-defined fields in any type of fact.

The FHUG Knowledge Base it explains all about ‘Custom Fact Fields’ at:

https://www.fhug.org.uk/wiki/doku.php?id=how_to:narrative_report_fact_sentence_templates#custom_fact_fields

 

However, in the case of the ‘1939 UK Register’ it should really be handled the same as a Census event.

The Date of Birth, Condition and Occupation should be recorded in the Source Citation just like a Census.

Then separate Birth and Occupation and Census facts should invoke that Source Citation.

 

It is also advisable to use the standard Census event for the ‘1939 UK Register’ as it is virtually the 1941 Census with a few tweaks.

The FHGU Knowledge Base explains all about ‘Family Historian Census Event for UK 1939 Register’ at:

https://www.fhug.org.uk/wiki/doku.php?id=ancestralsources:family_historian_census_event_for_uk_1939_register

That includes adjusting the narrative sentence so it says ‘1939 register’ instead of ‘census’.

 

There are many benefits in using the Census event instead of a custom fact as explained above.

 

If anything is not clear after reading those articles then please ask again.

Is it possible to create user defined fields in a Custom Fact rather than just ticking some or all of the 5 fields required? As an example, I have created a custom fact for the 1939 UK Register and would like to have fields for Date of Birth, Condition and Occupation rather than having them in the NOTES field. If this is possible is it also possible to add fields to a Standard Fact?
