Sending a tree as a file

Is there some/any way I can send a family tree diagram running into 1000+ individuals by file transfer?, I already send narrative reports.


Re: tree

Hello,

Family Historian 3 is now very out of date but if you have it installed on your computer it should still work.   Why are you unable to access it?  

If you purchase and install V7 on the same computer your data will be preserved, but as a precaution you should make a full backup of your V3 Gedcom file and any linked media files first.  (You should always keep backups anyway, in case of computer failure). There have been very many changes since version 3 so it will be a steep learning curve.

Hello.

 

I have been researching my family tree for a number of years and have all the information on Family Historian 3.

 

I now find that I am unable to access it and a box appears saying buy now.

 

If I am to purchase should I buy version 6 or 7 and if I do so will all my information still appear as it was, or am I going to just get a blank programme with all my previous work lost?

 

Can anybody help and advise please.

 

Mike.

 


Re: New user place/address advice

Adrian Bruce
 

Michael - I would agree with your understandings for your Chicago examples.

However, for my stuff, I have expanded the town-city element into two
to allow the use of suburb / town-city. For example instead of
"Chicago, Cook, Illinois, United States" I'd have (fictitious example)
"Downtown, Chicago, Cook, Illinois, United States" if I used the
suburb or ", Chicago, Cook, Illinois, United States" if I didn't have
a suburb and wanted to keep to a consistent number of "columns".

As for Wales, well, England, Wales & Scotland follow pretty much the
same pattern except that it's town-city / county / country, thus:
"Holy Trinity, Mostyn St., Llandudno, Caernarfonshire, Wales"
if you put the 2 parts of address into Place (this doesn't have a
suburb element).

Or, if you split:
"Holy Trinity, Mostyn St." for the address and
"Llandudno, Caernarfonshire, Wales" for the place (still with no suburb)

Obviously you can map the Welsh town-city / county / country onto the
US town-city / county / State / country by using an empty column, e.g.
"Llandudno, , Caernarfonshire, Wales" would be 4 columns lining up to
"Chicago, Cook, Illinois, United States"
(Whether you map the Welsh county onto the American county or the
American State is up to you but our county is usually the level below
the country so I'd map it onto the State. But that's me...)

Also with Wales, you have to decide whether to use the Welsh spellings
throughout history or use the contemporary spelling - usually English
- for the earlier events, which would give:
"Llandudno, , Carnarvonshire, Wales" in the 4 column form.

Ireland is different..... Oh so different....

Hope that helps,
Adrian

Hi Michael,

There is much current discussion in the FHUG Forum for ‘Importing and Exporting’ regarding RM.

e.g.

‘Rootsmagic->Family Historian’

‘error in import from Rootsmagic’

‘FH -> RootsMagic -> Ancestry (Work-in-Progress)’

‘Exporting to Roots Magic 7’

‘Import RootsMagic 7 into Family Historian 7’

 

There are also many RM migrants who are active in the Forums

I suggest you post your question there: https://fhug.org.uk/forum/

Did you know that the Place Lat/Longitude can accompany RM data imported to FH?

Re: GRO

Victor,

If you use the GRO online index for births (I suspect it is the same for deaths but marriages are not available), it does list the quarter, e.g.

DARVELL, ANDREW CHARLES
GRO Reference: DOR Q2/1984 in ST ALBANS (5351B) Volume 10 Page 865

It is a bit long-winded as there is no download option.

Hope that helps.

Just a thought, have you tried using the Find and Replace option under the Edit menu, you can limit changes to just Places, or Addresses as you wish. I have successfully used this many times as well as the Search and Replace plugin. You would need to be careful if a place refers to more than one location though, i.e. Amsterdam and New Amsterdam. Just make a back up first though just in case and inspect the results output.

In address it can be “Name of building/street number, street number, street name “.

So I want to add the address to the place beginning with building name/street # etc to the left of the place details, and presume the 2nd step will be to add the country to the enf/right of  place names. 

Also, in place have used “Regn District - “Name” for those GRO  B, M, D indices. 

 

Do I?

1) select all in input filter

2) open mapping options tab

I presume you are talking about the ‘Rearrange Address and Place Parts’ plugin.

Have you tried reading the guide via the ‘Help and Advice’ button?

 

The ‘Output Column Part’ rows identify all the Address and Place column parts you have allowed via Tools > Work with Data > Addresses/Places.

For each ‘Output Column Part’ choose the ‘Input Column Part’ you want to be assigned to that part.

If you want the current Address 1 part to move to the Place 1 part then in the droplist to the left of Place 1 choose Address 1.

If you want the Address 1 output to be cleared then select <blank> on its left.

 

The ‘Input Filter’ tab allows you to choose which Address & Place combinations you want to change.

 

Please explain how you want your Address fields to be reassigned to Place names and what you want to happen to the current Place name columns.

Looking for advice.  New user with FH … coming from Rootsmagic.

Place and address setup (columns).  I haven’t decided on how to use each.  I am going through examples in my tree and see how they work with FH.


I have the following location …

St. Michael Church, 8237 South Shore Drive, Chicago, Cook, Illinois, United States.


If I lump the location only in Place or Address, I will need 6 columns. Name, street&number, city, county, state, and country.  Correct?


If I split between place and address I would have 2 columns for address, and 4 columns for place.  Correct?

               Place:  Chicago, Cook, Illinois, United States

               Address:  St. Michael Church, 8237 South Shore Drive


What if I have just the street & address (no name)?  IE:  1234 Water St., Chicago, Cook, Illinois, United States.  I would still need a leading entry ( , ) for name correct?


The entry would look like …

               ,1234 Water St., Chicago, Cook, Illinois, United States

Do I have a correct understanding?


Lastly … I do have ancestors in Wales which I have not researched yet.  For proper locations in the UK (Wales) how many columns would I need for place if I put ALL the information in place?

How many columns in place and address if I split the location?


Any advice would be appreciated.

Re: Reassign Addresses to Place Names plugin.

Jan Murphy
 

I highly recommend using the 'reverse order' trick posted by John Hanson, suggested by Simon Orde, while cleaning up place names.

I recommend NOT putting street addresses into place names.  (I am currently getting ready for a project to find people in the 1950 census by browsing, and am investigating other solutions for keeping track of street-level data.)

I recommend either standardizing the place on a modern place for ease in geo-mapping, while keeping the name of the place as it appears in the record in research notes, or standardizing on a specific gazetteer. E.g. for Germany, FamilySearch uses Meyers' gazetteer as its standard. If I find a place in the online Meyers Gaz https://www.meyersgaz.org/ I copy and paste the location as it appears there so FH will match what Meyers' Gaz has. 

The one thing I haven't settled on for my Do-Over is whether or not to include UK registration districts as part of the place name for my (mostly) English places.  The advantage would be that it helps to differentiate Kingsbridge RD from a GRO registration from Kingsbridge the place.The US has town, county, state, country and having four jurisdictions there, it seems sensible to have the town/parish, reg district, county, country in four parts too.

It is important to decide how you will format foreign country Place names now. They can’t wait a while.

You are familiar with UK place names and so it is the foreign ones that cause the issues.

If those foreign countries need an extra column, then you will have to revisit all the UK place names.

It may be a simple change using an appropriate plugin, but why add that extra hassle?

Re: GRO

All the commercial websites use the same database provided by the GRO from entries from 1984 onwards

It was updated yearly until 2005 when they stopped providing the updates

 

The new GRO website has the data post 2005 however it is missing some of the information on both births and deaths and of course marriages are not included

I guessed that what is needed is for the plugin to reflect this so we can just mention the year

Hi Victor, 

 

The GRO stopped using quarter's at that time. FreeBMD is only reflecting the change.

I have used the GRO plugin quite a lot

It is great but on FreeBMD after 1983 it doesn't list the quarters.

Is there an option on GRO just to show the year he event took place

As things are I always end up with the first quarter. Is there a way of
leaving this blank i.e. not showing a quarter

I haven't checked Ancestry yet but thanks for letting me know

We just need the GRO plug in to reflect this

After that date the GRO started quoting the month of registration and this can be seen on Ancestry searches.
