  1. Visiting A Record Office

    hi teresa I have about 3,000 people so far and am going on the train which I have to change twice, carrying a suitcase and a laptop. So this sounds a really good idea but toooooo big in this instance lol Thanks for suggestion though as it will be perfect when I go to our local one which is a couple of miles away in the car Lin
  2. Hi I am visiting Whitehaven Record Office on Saturday for a week [am taking my sleeping bag] and would like to take a report with me to help find my ancestors and new family members. I was thinking a long the lines of a list of village/town place names with all the surnames currently connected to them so that I can take notes of anyone with those surnames on a particular film and enter all the information into my tree when I get home. Does anyone have any suggestions. Regards Half
  3. Hi As my research progresses I am now encountering ancestors who were transported to the colonies from here in the UK as criminals. I am presently using the emigration and immigration tags but they seem inadequate, does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can use instead. Regards Half Pint
  4. Emigration

    Hi Jim Many thanks for this. If I had thought about it, it is obvious, so please put it down to me having a "grey day" Again many thanks Half Pint
  5. Emigration

    Hi How do I deal with the following events: Elizabeth Eames leaves England on the 24th July 1834 and arrives in Australia on the 26th October 1834. The emigration tag deals with her leaving England but what can I use for her arrival. All suggestions will be considered. Thanks Half Pin
  6. Middlesex, London et al.

    I think it was one of those instances where there is no "right or wrong way" and so as long as we stay consistent in our own projects we will be ok [lol]
  7. Middlesex, London et al.

    Hi Terry I asked a very similar question on a site here in the UK re Cumberland / Cumbria and was told the following, in no uncertain terms. "Contrary to popular belief the counties of Cumberland, Rutland and the like, did not disappear in the great shake up of 1974. The counties did and still do exist, it is only the administrative centres that have altered". I agree with Terry R in that I put in the address as it was at the time of the event ie my dad was born in 1933 so is listed as being born in Cumberland but for my nephew who was born in 2007 it is listed as being Cumbria. I hope this helps. Half Pint That is what I have done and tend to leave the same Chapman code in place to link them together i.e. ignore county and use the Chapman field (replaces Temple) and then Shropshire and Salop (two names for the same county) both are SAL, likewise the more obvious Devon and Devonshire with DEV. Middlesex itself is an interesting case as it surrounded the City of London (the square mile) from the SW to the East. Then Greater London appeared and we have London Borough of xxxxxx. Middlesex disappeared... except that our main cricket club is the MCC (Middlesex cricket club) and it is oddly a postal county without having a proper boundary. That isn't technically correct, but people still know Twickenham as being in Middlesex and address mail that way. By the way, that is a big generalisation so anyone who wants to disagree, feel free to do so, I only used it to make the point that our Capital City has changed radically from the old format to the new.
  8. Still Waiting For Version 8

    My son gave me money for christmas so that I could upgrade to v8 when it came out. I have since spent it on something else.
  9. Missing GOREP

    Hi Virginia After I sent my last reply I sat here for a couple twiddling my thumbs and for some reason I decided to re-open my Project. When I did everything seemed ok so I checked a few things ie a Report and moving between tags and did so without any apparent problems. Now I am totally confused. Regards Half
  10. Missing GOREP

    Hi Virginia The Help / Check for Update let me close the project but just before it closed a message came up saying that a component was missing so a check could not be made. I tried to type it out for you but it disappeared too quickly. I don't know if this is connected but when I went back into my project to close it down, the persons name was missing from the detail window [she did not have her parents entered so I cannot see the extent of the omission]]. I am using Vista and went into the Error Report as you suggested and here is a copy of those for today. 4-04-2010, 20:25:16 1923Object GOREP is not found. 14 FRMCHART5.UNLOAD 04-04-2010, 20:26:05 1923Object GOREP is not found. 0 04-04-2010, 20:26:06 1923Object GOREP is not found. 0 04-04-2010, 20:26:17 1923Object GOREP is not found. 0 04-04-2010, 20:26:19 1923Object GOREP is not found. 0 04-04-2010, 20:27:15 1923Object GOREP is not found. 0 04-04-2010, 20:48:46 1923Object GOREP is not found. 0 04-04-2010, 20:49:08 1923Object GOREP is not found. 0 04-04-2010, 20:49:59 13Alias 'GOREP' is not found. 7 FRMEXPLORER.CNTPVIEW.CNTTREE.RLRELOADCONTENT_ASSIGN 04-04-2010, 21:38:46 13Alias 'GOREP' is not found. 7 FRMEXPLORER.CNTPVIEW.CNTTREE.RLRELOADCONTENT_ASSIGN 04-04-2010, 21:40:55 13Alias 'GOREP' is not found. 7 FRMEXPLORER.CNTPVIEW.CNTTREE.RLRELOADCONTENT_ASSIGN 04-04-2010, 22:02:27 1923Object GOREP is not found. 2 FRMFLAGMANAGER.CMDOK.CLICK 04-04-2010, 22:02:29 1923Object GOREP is not found. 542 FRMFLAGMANAGER.MOK 04-04-2010, 22:02:30 1923Object GOREP is not found. 16 FRMFLAGMANAGER.CMDOK.CLICK 04-04-2010, 22:03:14 1923Object GOREP is not found. 2 FRMFLAGMANAGER.RELEASE 04-04-2010, 22:03:15 13Alias 'GOREP' is not found. 36 AFDATE 04-04-2010, 22:47:31 13Alias 'GOREP' is not found. 36 AFDATE 04-04-2010, 22:47:33 13Alias 'GOREP' is not found. 36 AFDATE Thank you so much for trying to help me.
  11. Missing GOREP

    Hi I have sent an email to support but as it is the Easter Break I am not expecting anyone to be working and wondered if anyone can help. I am a complete idiot where computers are concerned. I cannot send you a Trouble Report as I cannot enter the Report. When I try to enter a tag it opens and then immediately closes. If I try to change a flag etc I get the error window saying words to the effect that GOREP is missing. I can validate my file and it shows that I have no problems but when I try to close and save my project it will not allow me. Regards Half Pint
  12. Research Log

    I knew someone would know of a way. Thank you Jim you have saved me many hours of monotonous keying, thank you.
  13. Research Log

    Hi I have over 14,000 tasks in my research log and would like to delete them all, does sks know of a way to do this "on mass" or would I have to do it individually. Many thanks for taking the time to read this. Regards Half Pint
  14. Hi Can sks please help me as I have been "having a grey moment" for the last two hours. I would like to produce a FGS which gives all the information I have on the main person and their spouse. Also, their children up to and when they marry but no further informtion on them, as this would be on their own sheet. Regards Half Pint
  15. How to handle Wales, Cornwall and the like

    I must admit that I always have a heavy heart before pressing the button to produce the drop down menu as I don't know whether I will have to find England, Great Britain or the United Kingdom.
