Denmark Locations Suggestion Needed

24 August 2013 - 09:43 PM

I need a suggestion from those who use RM while doing Danish research.
As I have learned new Danish research techniques, I have found that most searches like to have the Amt (County), Herred (District) and Søgn (Parish) information. Bunt once you have entered that information and get some results, you have one further location that translates to "Place Name". As I understand it this place is like a neighborhood or modern subdivision. This information is usually missing in research that had been done before, but is vitally important as it is very helpful when verifying that you are looking at the correct person. Many records mention the (person name) from (place name).

My question is, would this place name be better located in the "Place" field or "Place Detail" field? It is most likely a matter of personal preference, but I am curious as to what others do.

Thanks, Rich

RM6 data/media files home server

12 August 2013 - 03:45 PM

I have used Roots Magic for years and love it! I have a network with a home server attached that I would like to store all of my data & media files on and be able to access it from either of the two computers in our home. The program files will be on each local machine. Will this give me any grief?
I also intend to sync all of these files to the more powerful of the two machines which is connected to an online back up.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks, Rich

Fixing Media Links

17 April 2013 - 02:03 PM

I just built a new computer and decided to rearrange my drives to make more sense, Dirve "G" for genealogy. Is there a way to re-point my links to drive G in one step? The rest of the path will remain the same.

Thanks, Rich
