Custom fact disappeared with newest update

07 August 2017 - 09:12 PM

I have a very simple custom fact called 'Event' that I use for many types of miscellaneous information.   


I just did the newest update.   When I tried to add an 'Event' fact, it no longer exists!   I do see 'Event for (a given name)'.   In the person pages, it still shows up as just 'Event.'  It looks like I just need to change the name of the fact type back to just plain 'Event,' and all will be well.


Anyone else having unexpected things with their facts?



How to remove old FamilySearch link for a person

How do I remove a link to an 'old' FamilySearch person who has been merged and no longer exists.

Linking RM with FamilySearch

07 January 2017 - 04:49 PM

I have several people in a family who were linked to people on FamilySearch YEARS ago.    


Merges have happened, and the person I originally linked to no longer exists.    I have updated information that I would like to move to FamilySearch, but I get a message "Forbidden."   etc


How can I unlink my RM people from these now no longer existing people?


I assume if I unlink, then I can establish a new link to the current FS person.


Thanks for any suggestions.

Merging when my RM person is already matched to a nonexistent person

22 August 2016 - 12:21 AM

So my RM person has a 7 digit code because she was already matched to someone on FamilySearch Family Tree.  


It seems the FT person no longer exists on Family Tree.    On Family Tree there is another person with the same data , parents, spouse, etc, but my RM person can't be merged to that FT person because my RM person is already matched to a non-existing FT person.


Any suggestions?

Thank you.
