  • Install Library Modules V1.0 (5 May 2020) By Mike Tate. Some Plugins require library modules to be downloaded and installed before they will run.

  • Multifact V1.9.1 (23 Dec 2019) By Helen Wright. There are some occasions on which it would be really useful to be able to create one or more facts for a one or more individuals using the same source . . . and some shared data. Ancestral Sources does this for the most common source types, but there are sources it doesn't handle. For example: - You have a passenger list and want to create an Emigration fact for all the members of a family, with the same source citation details, and some common fact details (e.g.departure and arrival places, date, a note about the ship they travelled on...) - You have an electoral roll and want to create a Residence fact for all those living at the same address, again with the same source citation details and with a common date, place and address. - You have a military service record and want to create a number of facts for the same individual (service number, enlistment, ....). In this case the source citation details may not all be the same (e.g. where in source will vary) and the fact details will all be different, but it might still be convenient to create all the facts at once before going in to edit the specific details for each one). Yes, it's possible to achieve the same thing using Autosource citation, and copying and pasting facts, but sometimes that's a lot of work and prone to missing something/somebody. The Multifact plugin (attached) allows you to choose a single (existing) Source and optionally fill in some or all citation details for it; one or more Individuals; and one or more Fact types. You can then specify some all or no common fact details (date, age, place, etc.) and create a set of identical facts for all the individuals selected. The plugin keeps an on-screen log of all the facts you've created, so you can make several batches without exiting the plugin but keep track of what you have and haven't done. And when you do exit the plugin, the facts created are presented in FH ready for further editing (not everyone will have the same age at emigration, for example, so you will need to add age to each individual emigration fact.) If you have a problem with the plugin please contact me via my 'author link'
  • Research Planner V2.0.1 (8 Dec 2019) By Helen Wright. Family Historian is an excellent program for recording the results of your Family History research, but it does not come with an inbuilt mechanism for . . . planning (or tracking) that research in a structured fashion, although there are many features you can take advantage of to do so. The Research Planner supports one approach to structured research planning and tracking. There are other approaches you may wish to consider, each with their own advantages and disadvantages, as documented at Planning and Tracking Your Research. If you're looking for a simple 'Jotter Pad' approach, Research Planner is not your solution. So, why use Research Planner? After all, Family History research is not rocket science – every genealogy researcher knows that. However, the process of: * Assessing what you already know about an individual * Determining what else you want to discover about them * Formulating a plan to discover new evidence * Executing that plan *Using any evidence found to update what you know can be surprisingly error-prone. You forget to search a particular source. You do it twice, and don't make a note of your exact search terms so you can't be sure if you need to do it yet again. You order the same birth certificate twice because you didn't make a note when you ordered it the first time, and it's still the wrong one second time around! You forget how to do that weird search you did 10 years ago for another individual, and for the life of you, you can't remember what website you used… And it's tedious to make a note to do all the standard searches for BMD when you'll remember it anyway. Usually. The Research Planner tries to make it easier to record what you intend to do, and how each search turned out, to avoid the common pitfalls as far as you can; to plan research activities based on past experience; and to keep track of your research activities. It allows you to plan and track your research Tasks either by using a custom Family Historian Fact (Attribute) or by using Family Historian Note records. It allows you to create custom tasks, optionally based on Templates that you have predefined; or to quickly create multiple standard tasks, again using templates. It supports Tags to identify Research Planner tasks, and Groups to associate related tasks; and provides a query that allows you to view tasks based on a flexible combination of filters. It is highly configurable, so you can choose what elements to use in your tasks and what to call them. It does not try to dictate methodology: you can plan and/or document your research in as much or as little detail as you like, and configure the plugin to support your approach. There is documentation at Research Planner if you want to understand more.

  • Flexible CSV Importer V1.5 (22 Jun 2019) By Mike Tate. Takes a CSV file and creates people, adds facts and creates spouse and parent-child relationships in Family Historian. Columns in the CSV file can be . . . mapped to the appropriate fields using an interface in the plugin - fixed column formatting or naming is not required. The plugin can optionally append a source to every entry, and can create different citation details (i.e. "Where in Source") for each line of the CSV. Within each row, for each individual, it is assumed that any references to a fact type relate to the same occurrence of that fact. Custom references can be used to identify the same individual in different rows of the CSV either to build a more complex tree or to allow for multiple occurrences of a fact type. The type of use intended when creating this was import of a variety of data that a one-name or place study might be interested in. For example, baptism transcripts which may include birth and baptism names, parents names and address all in the one line. Custom references allow for individuals to be linked across lines of the CSV to create larger family records, e.g. where the same parents had multiple children baptised. This plugin is intended for use in a new Project, and will not link to individuals already present in the database. Please check the import results carefully and report any bugs in the FHUG Plugin Discussions Forum. Version 1.5 has better CSV syntax checks, more Source Citation options, a Help page and new dialogues. Version 1.4 fixes a bug in mapping note fields. Version 1.3 fixes a bug that sometimes occurs when creating families using custom references. Version 1.2 adds option to discard Custom References, and fixes bug where they are listed multiple times. Version 1.1 will append to, rather than overwrite, duplicated note fields and citation text fields. It also creates new facts instead of overwriting data if an individual has the same field type listed in multiple rows of the data.

GEDCOM 5.5 structures are allowed, but NOT . . . GEDCOM 5.5.1. It excludes any LMO that conform to the Sort Date format. It includes LMO in invalid positions registered as UDF, but relocates them to the parent item, e.g. an LMO on an Address will become a Media record linked to the parent Fact. If multiple LMO have identical values, such as the same File path, then only one shared Media record is created. If most other Media files are in the Project Media folder, then each LMO file is copied there too, leaving the original behind. Invalid data will move to Custom Id in the Media record.
  • Rearrange Address and Place Parts V1.5 (7 Mar 2019) By Mike Tate. Allows any Address and Place comma separated column parts to be re-arranged by mapping any source part to any target part.

  • Add a General Record Office Source and optionally Event V1.3 (3 Mar 2019) By Jane Taubman. This plugin speeds up the entry of information from the UK Birth Marriage and Death indexes.

  • Clean Living Persons V1.6 (19 Nov 2018) By Mike Tate. Privatise the details of Living and Private people. When sharing files on line, it is a good idea to remove any detailed information. This plugin . . . offers several options to reduce the amount of information in a GEDCOM file for living people. It is designed to be used in conjunction with the Export GEDCOM File and Split Tree Helper commands, and will prompt for confirmation if you try to use it on a GEDCOM file that is open in Project mode. It will take note of the Living flag on a person, but can be additionally set to assume anyone with an actual or estimated birth date after a selected date (or with no birth date) and also with no death date is still living.
