I will look at the cancel option to see if the crash can be fixed, in the meantime  with many notes to process it will take a long time.  Please try letting it run for a longer time.

A really useful Plugin.  Thank you Jane. 


Just a little wish list item - is it possible to show information stored in the "Notes" field?  Other fields such as "Text from Source" are able to be viewed but I can't seem to be able to view anything written in the "Notes" field.


TIA    Judith

Downloaded this plugin today (20th April 2012) and I would recommend it.  Works great creating a temp. page and on Firefox.

Excellent plugin !

I agree that this would be better if it could use three different sources. 

I'm unable to make it work because after I enter all the information and try to apply it, I get the error message: calico pie\family historian\Add GRO Source.fh_lua:74:Invalid Argument, No changes have been made to data records.

As a new user, I have found this very helpful as I adjust my data and the tags I use to work better with Family Historian.

problem with whole word replacement now incorporated so it deserves 5 star rating

I've found this to be the "Must have" plugin of all available

You can have three different sources, one for each if you:

1.  Create three sources one for each of BMD and remember their source number.
2.  When you run the Plug in you are prompted firstly to pick a source .
3.  When running for a second a subsequent time you can change the source number in the top of the box appropriate tot he index you want to use.
