Re: Import - multiple copes of media?

I was *this close* to going ahead with my "final import" and figuring I'd handle the de-duplication later. This is one instance where procrastination paid off!


Re: Import - multiple copes of media?

Mike Tate
 

We are looking at updating an existing Plugin to handle existing imported Projects.

Not sure about sorting it out quickly though. It was reported in July 2015 nearly 6 years ago.

I know because I reported it.

It is the repeated reports from new users that have prompted CP to belatedly get it fixed.

If it had been done anytime in the last 6 years then there would be no existing Projects needing a Plugin to correct them.

Rant over!

Thanks Leslie,
I too had an email, yes great news!
I've now installed the update and its appears to work well with new imports. Although as you say it isn't going to help people who have already imported a gedcom, it won't work with existing projects.
Most impressed with how quickly they've sorted this out!

Now for the less great news:

That's from the email I got from FH support.


Re: Historian3

Welcome Alison,

That does sometimes happen, so try running the program as an Administrator.

 

Right-click on the ƒh icon and choose ‘Run as administrator’ from the dropdown menu that appears. You may have to enter an Administrator password. You will need to re-enter your Registration Key, but should find that thereafter, the details have ‘stuck’.

Hi everyone,

I am new to this group, but have been using Historian3 for years.  I have recently got a new computer, and therefore re-installed, via Historian3 on my new computer.  But every time I open Family Historian it asks for the key number.  Which I have and put in, and it tells me that it has stored the key.  But it does not store it as I have to input it every time.  Its a long key and I do copy and paste it, but nevertheless is a bit annoying.

Can anyone help?
Thanks
Alison

This is from the FHUG Knowledge Base, and might help:

Repeated Licence Details Request

If ƒh requests the Licence Details to be re-entered every time it is run, then try running as Administrator.

Right-click on the ƒh icon and choose Run as administrator from the dropdown menu that appears (the exact details may vary with different versions of Windows). You may have to enter an Administrator password. You will need to re-enter your Licence Name and Registration Key, but should find that thereafter, the details have ‘stuck’.

Thank you, Ian and and everyone. It is good of you to take the time to help, as of course, this does not concern Family Historian. I did a scan right away, and that was all clear. The next day - or yesterday - Windows 10 confronted me with its desire that I update sync settings and buy cloud storage - none of which suits me! I am now sure that Windows was the trigger.

Use the Records Window which is your Index to all individuals that you have entered.

Re: Repeated Trojan Attempts tonight

Neil Grantham
 

SearchApp.exe is normally a part of Windows in either C:\Windows or C:\Windows\System32, so this one looks suspicious, especially as Malwarebytes has picked it up.

As already stated, make sure your AV and MalwareBytes are up to date and so full scans with both. As the latter found it to be potentially malicious, the scan should allow you to deal with it when it completes.
I’ve sworn by this program for years fighting malware in my job.

Best Wishes
Neil

Re: Repeated Trojan Attempts tonight

rob.cook-genes@...
 

Please take the warning seriously - I also found a Trojan called Trojan.Kryptik.AQ. My malware program SpyHunter identified and removed it (April 1st)

 

It appeared that when I tried to close FH, it just hung. I had MyHeritage website open at the time, so I’m not sure the origin of the Trojan.

Helen - I don't want to put a dampener on things, but I had the same Trojan warnings from Malwarebytes when using TMG rather than FH.

I ran a full scan with Norton and it found and removed a Trojan, since when, no more Malwarebytes messages.

You might care to consider a full virus sweep of your machine as a precaution.

Re: Media sources

Victor Markham
 

What I do.

If it is a BMD certificate I have set up a folder on my computer called 'certificates' followed by a sub folders for each of BMD. These foldwers are in FH Project folder

I save each certifcate and go to the person on FH which they refer to. I then use AS to add then into FH.

For photos of individuals. I save them in a folder under the appropriate surname with subfolder of the person. e.g. Smith sunfolder John Smith. Then on FH I go to the appropriate person and add the photo from the folder where they are saved.

I do the same for census under appropriate years

It depends on the type of media. If it is an image of a source document, such as a birth/marriage/death certificate, you should create a source record for that document, possibly with a transcription of the text from source (not essential, but a good idea if the document is hard to read), and the source record can contain any relevant details about the repository, publication information or whatever else you feel is appropriate.  Then link the Media record to the Source record, and cite the Source against all the facts you can glean from it. 

If it is a photo of a person, linked direct to the individual's record, or a photo of an event, for example a wedding photo which you might link direct to the marriage event, the image itself is not a source but more of an 'illustration'.  In this case you might still want to record where you got the picture from (a family photo album, a facebook page, a newspaper) but I would put that information in the main Note field for the Media record.  (This is not the same as the note field which can be used as a caption).

Thank you, all. I panicked a bit. Ian: Malwarebytes does do the occasional false positive, so thank you for that assurance. Maybe it was to do with Windows 10's dreadful search facility in the bottom left of the screen: I wouldn't mind getting rid of the useless thing! Like you, Adrian, I can no longer find my way around Windows!
