Re: Anomalous ages appearing after birth date

John Ball
 

Thank you Lorna; thank you Mike.

Of course! What a plonker I am!

I must say, I've been using FH since its first version way back when, and I must have seen this happen over and over again - whenever I've entered the birth-dates of new individuals before entering their death dates - and I've never queried it before.

Must be a sign of old age!

Thanks again,

John

PS I've unticked "Ages" in the Customize View menu, as you suggest Lorna. Thanks for that, too.

If you don't want the ages to be displayed in the Focus window, click the small 'Customize View' link at the top right and untick Ages, then click OK.  (You can also get to this Preferences window using Tools>Preferences>Focus Window.)

Anomalous ages appearing after birth date

John Ball
 

I've just experienced what appears to be a bug in the latest version of FH - 7.0.7

I was adding two children to the couple shown on the screen shot below. As soon as I added the children's birth dates, FH added a spurious age after each of the children's birth dates (which I've high-lighted in a red box). This occurs both for exact dates and for quarter dates. As far as I can see, none of the pre-existing individuals or families are affected in this way.

Has anyone else experienced this anomaly? I'm running FH on an HP desktop operating under Windows 10 Home, version 20H2

Re: Dividing lines between branches on family tree

I have changed the colours of my branches to differentiate between them, if that is any help.

Re: Dividing lines between branches on family tree

If you simply want to make the branches more spatially distinct you can use the Movement Control Box to move branches further apart from each other.  Click the third icon from the right in the diagram toolbar, labelled ‘Move’.  Then click the Help button in that small window for further guidance.  To move ancestral branches apart use the Fixed Point option.  Set one ancestor as the fixed point and slide their spouse away from them.

The answer is no, but I’m not sure I understand how it would work or why it is needed.

 

Are you saying you want a line between every ancestral and descendant branch however complex the tree?

That could be a lot of lines on an All Relatives Diagram with many ancestral & descendant branches.

Hi Stuart,

There are a number of possibilities.

 

You can use the ‘Diagram > Save Diagram As’ options and save it as an image file (JPG/PNG) or as a PDF file.

Then at Step 4 – Add Items for Table of Contents use the Picture Image option for a JPG/PNG file or the Download option for a PDF file.

 

Alternatively, upload your Project to an online tree at Ancestry, FindMyPast, MyHeritage, ZoomPast, etc, which are mostly free.

Then at Step 4 – Add Items for Table of Contents use the Link to website option.

 

Whichever techniques you use remember to keep all living people details private unless you get their permission to publish on your website.

Re: Simple descendants chart

Thanks Jane,

I will see how far I get by modifying these reports. I found this thread https://fhug.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=18400 which is more or less the same issue., and not too promising

Simple descendants chart

Jan Eri
 

I often create PDFs or printouts with "Charts -> Pedigree Chart..." when working on something, they are compact and uncluttered:


I have not found such a chart for descendants. The nearest I've found is "Waterfall"


which probably can be stripped down to become a little similar, but not the same thing.

Is there a descendants-version of "Charts -> Pedigree Chart..." ?

Hi

Can someone help me with the relevant syntax to add the ID of the individual found by the "ContainsText_Date_Fact" query (which I believe I downloaded from FHUG a while ago).

I appreciate that it is a "Fact" query but by tweaking a copy of the "=FieldText(FactOwner(%FACT%,1,MALES_FIRST),'INDI.NAME:SURNAME_FIRST')" column I can get the birth, marriage and death dates of the individual but not their ID.

I'm guessing that the phrase  "RecordId()" needs to be inside the "FactOwner()" parameter somewhere but nothing I've tried seems to work.

Any help gratefully received.

It is the same as in FH v6.2.

Use the Diagram > Diagram Statistics… command.
