CWGC rather than CWCG?

Sorry about that Denise, but there are different ways of representing same sex partnerships in GEDCOM. FH prefers to use two HUSB or two WIFE links, but Heredis uses one HUSB & one WIFE regardless of gender. So hopefully that can be fixed in the Plugin in due course.

I find this plug in very useful but not as flexible as I would like. I have tried saving it into Excel but because some of the rows are double I cannot sort the output as not all cells on a column are the same size.. What I would like is to be able to select individual years so that I can concentrate on one census at a time. At the moment I cannot easily see the wood from the trees.

Hi Pentris, you could sort the web page into date order by clicking on the ancestry or findmypast column headings, and scroll down to the year of interest.

I'm in the process of tidying up my FTM file so that I can use FH later this year (I've just about exhausted what's on Ancestry so my membership will expire later this year and I'm now subscribed to FindMyPast). I exported a Gedcom from FTM to check for duplicate individuals using FH and this plugin. If the Gedcom is simply imported as a new project then the plug-in fails to find any duplicates. Making a simple change to one individual then allows the plug-in to work although only one individual is checked.

If the Gedcom is merged with an existing dummy project (just one individual) then the plug-in runs and finds the duplicates in the original file.

Doing some debugging I located the issue that the plug-in requires a CHAN entry for each individual otherwise it won't list it as a possible entry to be matched as only changed records are checked.

I modified the code so that it would ignore the lack of CHAN and the plug-in successfully ran and found duplicates.

This is not a major issue for me as I have a successful work around but it may be worth considering for a future upgrade of either the plug-in or FH6.

Alan, may I suggest you post such comments in the <a href="http://www.fhug.org.uk/">FHUG Plugin Discussion Forum</a>. I have a Plugin that will set any missing <b>Updated CHAN</b> date for every record. As more and more imported projects are sufferring that problem, perhaps it should be published in the Plugin Store, and mentioned in this Plugin's Help & Advice.

Extremely useful.  the Where Used Plugin delivers a one row per linked to/ where used listing for any selected items.  For me, this plugin in combination with 'Check for external links' plugin and 'External file links' tool gives total control to keep my media and notes organized and orphan free.

Extremely useful.  the Check for External Media is invaluable to keep orphans from appearing in your media folders. For me, this plugin in combination with Where Used plugin and External file links tool gives total control to keep my media and notes organized and orphan free.

The Export Gedcom  has been invaluable to permit conversion from Legacy Family Tree to Family Historian, and yet continue to export to TNG successfully.  In addition, able, with the same plugin, back feed through export to Legacy Family Tree to use that application as well.  My hat is off to Mike Tate working through issues  so LFT and TNG present the FH data almost identically to the way it was before.
