Re: FH7 just ending with no reason at all at all for a GEDCOM input - why no error message?

Mike Tate
 

Hi Phil,

A bit more background would help us narrow down the problem.

You say it happens on both FH V6 and FH V7.

Presumably, it has been a problem for some time or you’ve got both FH versions still installed?

 

Where does this GEDCOM come from?

How do you know it has “islands” and date format errors if it won’t import?

How is Ancestry.co.uk involved?

Hi all,

 

This happens to me with both versions 6 and 7.

 

I know my GEDCOM file contains dozens of “islands” and has date format errors but no error message at all? (thanks mainly to Ancestry.co.uk!)

 

I use ALL FH programs but this is the worst for this!!!

 

HELP

 

TIA

Thanks Lorna, That is what I was looking for. It's well-hidden.

Yes there is another way to clone a Source record.  Open the Automatic Source Citations panel and select the source.  Then use the cog menu at the right where one of the options is Clone Source Record.

As far as I can see the Clone and Record should work in V7,  but I suspect the Author has not had time to check and update it.

You could test it out on the Sample Project before using it in your production data.

Looking at the plugin store, it is only v5/6 compatible, so FH7 will disable it when you upgrade.

The plugin store shows it was last updated in 2012


Best Wishes


Neil.

There used to be a plugin called "Clone any record", but this has been disabled in V7 and the plugin has not been updated at the moment.

Is there another way to clone/duplicate a source record?

There is no need to pay for anti-virus software. AVG and Avast regularly top the independent reviews. McAfee has a reputation for being bloated and slowing down computers.

My suggestion – make sure you are running a decent (paid-for one as free ones generally constrained in some way) AntiVirus or Antimalware system and run a full disk scan on your computer.

 

I use McAfee but there’s quite a range of options.

 

Good luck!

I received a phishing email via the group this morning, supposedly from a Bill Metcalf. The email contains a link which obviously should NOT be clicked. NB I did not click it myself!

I have placed Bill's email on moderation.   Please do not reply to the list with regard to this email or click on on the link


Re: phishing email

People WILL get this as it was sent to the family-historian@groups.io email address, which then distributes it to members of the list, so no need for everyone to chip in with 'I got it too' (I got it too!!)


The link takes you to a website where there appears to be a PDF file waiting to download, that may or may not be genuine. Only clicking that download and opening it would payload a virus etc (if it's infected), so you should be OK.


Searching the messages on the website, he doesn't appear to have posted before (if indeed he is a member).


Best Wishes


Neil.

Hi,

I've also received the reported phishing message allegedly from Bill Metcalfe, which went straight to my spam folder. However, if memory serves me right, I think I have in the past seen postings from a Bill Metcalfe, so in view of recent postings about geo coding, I googled 'geo-strategies' and it appears to be a genuine company that carries out things like geo-coding, and Bill Metcalfe is one of the founders (see quote from the website).

The Geo Strategies Group was set up by two people – Daniela Florea, a geographer from Sibiu in Transylvania, and Bill Metcalf, an international management consultant, from Cambridge, UK.

I wonder if the supposed phishing message is a slip of the finger from a genuine group member.
