I am putting together a tree for a friend and have found that the residence fact is disappearing. I have this on as a custom fact ( as in the options list avaialble, if I select 'residence' I get 'census') - has anyone else had this problem - and if so, how can it be fixed without trawling all through the censuses and other records all over again - not to mention having to type 'em all in again!
Thanks Noam, for the information - however, on my own tree I have residence as a custom fact. I use this as a matter of course when adding ancestors to my own tree. The tab within the edit facility seems more suited to current residences rather than ancient ones.
I can put the addresses, if I want to, in the 'notes' box for each census for my friend's tree, but I can't understand why it works on mine but not on his. At the moment his is only a small tree - and up until yesterday, after a few days' work, residence remained definitely there, as a custom fact, every day, after saving and shutting down, when I opened the tree again.
The street addresses are important both to me and to my mate: he is extremely parochial, and when he had to move out of his own parish a couple of years ago, became quite upset at the thought that moving house - albeit only by a couple of miles- would take him from his birthplace to the adjoining parish.He is also interested in the social conditions and history of the areas in which his ancestors lived and worked and, very often, died.
I am using your (very good) free version:is residence available as a custom fact on the paid-for version? If so it would be worthwhile upgrading!
Hi. I have a family tree where I have a photo of my grandfather with his brothers. After I tagged these photos, I see that my grandfather's brothers is listed as great-Uncle. They should be GRAND-uncle and not great-Uncle. Is this a bug? Thanks.
I've done this several times but I only want the names in the list last/first, not the whole chart or tree. In other words, only the column to the far left with the list of the names is the only one I want to set at last/first. I don't see any way to alphabetize them either. Is this the only option I have?
