There's an option at the bottom of the Article Edit Screen which says 'Display on Home Page', if you unclheck that, I presume your Article will disappear from your Home Page but remain on the Activities.
Hi - I've added a second wife and the information is there and shows up in a name search. The problem is it's not linked on the branch. I can see the "attatch" option when I try and edit. But when I select the second wife and hit attach it says shes already there... does that make sense? Help
Since family branches were entered by different relatives of my family, my great- grandmother and her sister are shown as half sisters. I could not find a way to add alredy listed parent to the person.
To delete and re-enter my great-grandmother's sister's brunch means to re-enter data of 26 people. Please make option to select a parent, same as you can select a wife.
I have a similar problem. I have two people listed as maried (and there are number of children and grandchildren entered already) but it turned out that actually the father should be a different person of the same name. So If I could enter the correct marriage details and move the children to the new father, half of my problem would be solved. The other part would be to delete the "wrong" marriage - without deleting the wrong husband because his sister (and what follows him) flows into a different part of my tree. A bit complicated but please let me know if there is a way of fixing this ....
I have 'stupidly' started 3 trees. Each of these trees contain information that all belongs together. The first tree I started was my husbands family. The second, is my family. The third is also my family.
Can I make all of them into ONE tree without having to re-type everything? and if so, what is the best way to name the tree for all involved?
I am running Windows 7 and purchased the premium option, The program crashes all of the time. It crashes throughout various uses of your program, or sometimes just sitting idle with the program open and runnings.
You should have no problem transferring the file as you would any other file. If you use a jump drive with a remote connection and know how to transfer other files with it, just follow the same steps you normally would.
Alternatively you can use a pen drive or a file sharing site such as www.rapidshare.com to upload the file and get a URL you can download the file from on the second computer.
EDIT: Ok, it seems to be a bug(or maybe it's a feature):
the file was exported from a copy of FTB that uses english as data input language and to a version that has another input language so it wouldn't show up. However if I changed to english or added it as a secondary language all the info would show up.
It would be nice to have an option in the import GEDCOM wizard to convert or just copy all the information to your current primary language if FTB detects that there is information in the file written under another language.
If a person has the information "Born in: New York, USA" in english and the primary laungage is something else I would still want the birthplace information without having to hunt for it.
When you import the file to Family Tree Builder (File > Import GEDCOM)
make sure you choose the correct data language.
You can verify what that language is beforehand, by opening the GEDCOM file with Notepad. You will see the language at the top of the file.
After the GEDCOM is imported into Family Tree Builder, you might find that you see the names in the tree, but if you double click on one of the cards, its empty. In this case, go to the Language menu > Advanced language options,
and make sure the Main data language is set to the GEDCOM's original data language, and not only the display language.
