Re: Family Historian 7 - Sync with FS

David Potter
 

I have the same thoughts and dreams. I use Family Tree Maker 2019. I extract from FH into FTM then synch to Ancestry and FamilySearch. It's a chore but works for me. FH will always be my Master software for Genealogy.

Best David

Hi David,

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. 
Since last year I started a semi(pseudo)-migration to RootsMagic because of their sync to FS functionality.
But the real fact is that I kind of cannot stop using FH. I feel it is much superior.

I will keep dreaming Calico Pie will someday add this ability...

You have slightly misquoted me.

The IE core shell almost certainly is still ‘supported’.

It is IE that I said is not ‘supported’ by which I meant the user interface built on top of the core shell.

 

The Edge browser is not even a component of Windows, and is planned to be shipped and updated as a separate product.

You are right that it is not being ‘developed’ or ‘supported’ which just means it is getting no new features or bug fixes

I would have thought that the core shell, being, as you say, a fundamental part of the Windows User Interface, would still be subject to bug fixes. Otherwise, that's a nice channel of attack for the black hats. 

 

Whether the adoption of the Chrome engine in the Edge browser might affect the continued use of the IE core, I have no idea. I keep losing track of which bit the Chrome engine is an engine for! (And indeed, whether it's Chrome or Chromium!)

Hello,

You have just posted the same question on FHUG and got a couple of quick replies there, so I suggest you continue the discussion there.

Subject: [family-historian] Adding Historical events to the descendants narrative report

 

Hi All,

Having entered all my family into FH I used the descendant’s narrative to produce the relevant 'book'. It all worked perfectly but I wanted to try to add some important historical events to align with individual's existence e.g. 1965 Winston Churchill died when nephew John was born.

Is there any way this can be achieved?

Many thanks in advance

 


Re: Importance Value of various Birth Sources

I did once see an entry in an old PR where details had been filled out but there were no signatures.  The clergyman had helpfully added an explanation to the effect that "it having been made known to me that the man hath a wife living, the ceremony did not proceed".  So someone really did say something when asked "if anyone knows of any lawful reason..... speak now or forever hold thy peace".

Ah, but the sensible thing to do would be to leave the entry unsigned (or unmarked) so that if someone doesn't turn up or there's an objection, then it's not actually a valid entry. And I have seen an unsigned entry at least once. The oddity there was that it was indexed (actually, indexing is probably sensible) and if I hadn't checked the image, I'd be under the impression that the couple married twice.

Re: Reinstall question

Mike Tate
 

Yes, that is technique that has been reported as working in many forums and newsletters and uses the Download Windows 10 web page I mentioned.

 

There are general Windows 10 update tips in the FHUG Knowledge Base Windows 10 Upgrade Tips:

https://www.fhug.org.uk/wiki/doku.php?id=glossary:windows_10_upgrade_tips

The Alternative Upgrade Method is the technique being discussed here.

You should be able to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 free of charge, without losing the Family Historian program (and other programs/apps) or your FH data. I have upgraded several PCs/laptops for free over the last year with complete success. The instructions are here.

Re: Hints from FMP not showing in the Web search window

Mike Tate
 

Pauline,

The FH internal Web Search Window is unaffected by the Chrome browser or any other browser except IE.

Note that the FH Web Search Window cannot access FMP record unless you sign in via FH or IE.

Signing in via Chrome does not work.

 

What have you tried to close the FH Web Search Window?

Left-click the X in the Navigation Bar icon on left.

Right-click that same icon and use Close Window.

Use Window > Close All Non-essential Windows.

I’m having the same problem. I’m not sure when it started because I’ve been on holiday. I’m also finding it very difficult to close the window. I wondered if it might be related to having FMP open in chrome at the same time, although that never used to make a difference.

Re: Hints from FMP not showing in the Web search window

Pauline,

The Internet Explorer core shell is fundamental to Windows File Explorer, the Windows Desktop, et al.

So without a major redesign IE cannot be ‘retired’ but you are right that it is not being ‘developed’ or ‘supported’ which just means it is getting no new features or bug fixes.

It is the same as Windows XP, Windows Vista, and now Windows 7 that are not supported, but it still continue to operate.

Hi Mike,
I had reset IE but not run the Plugin. After running the Write Reg Plugin, all is fine now. Many thanks for your help.

A bit risky if the bride (or groom) gets the jitters on 'the day' and back out, and the incumbent forgets to delete the entry...........just a thought!

John,

Did you follow the advice I suggested in https://www.fhug.org.uk/wiki/doku.php?id=how_to:internet_data_matches especially regarding Internet Explorer and the Write Reg IE Shell Version Plugin that exactly matches your description and can sometimes happen after a Windows Update?

Hi Mike, thanks for the reply. I was only guessing at the cause of the problem, as on the 15th Jan, Microsoft downloaded a new version of Edge that is now based on the Chrome Browser. I just wondered if that had caused the problem. 
It is weird as it has been working well for a very long time, but just recently it has stopped working and only shows a blank page. If I open in an external browser , that works fine......strange?
