Further to my previous comment I now see that the URL I was adding included text between %% markers.  Taking this out of the URL meant that the plug-in worked OK. I know that Family History uses %% symbols in expressions etc - maybe this has caused some sort of compatibility problem.

Really like this plugin, thanks for adding. Is it possible to print it?

Smart plug-in - but could wish for a print button ;-).

I have just recommended it for the two persons I work together with.

Another great plugin from Mike Tate. Very quick single click indeed and nice navigation tool.  Would like to have ID's shown as well, and/or a right click to go focus on an person.

Was running and then paused and came up with a message "not enough memory. No changes have been made to data records."

Oops! That message came from another Plugin. This plug in finds 6 problems. If I say Yes to "Try and Fix them" and then cancel, it comes up with on e window and then a message about bad argument #1 to 'open' (string expected, got nil).

I would prefer a report which told  me which records were in error so I could check them manually.

I've now seen Mike's comment about FH6 having media link repair features, so I will give that a try. (Tools/External File Links / Auto Repair Links.) The Help explains that this may take some time.

Ran and then came up with error message, "not enough memory. No changes have been made to data records."

Derek, you have mistaken this Plugin for the Program that it invokes.

Your comments should be entered into the FHUG Ancestral Sources Forum.

Adding a Print button is almost impossible, but the Windows built-in free Snipping Tool can easily grab a screen-shot and print or save that. [Rec Id] now added.

It's not possible to search multiple gedcoms from a single project. Sorry
