In Topic: Source Templates To Be Fixed

I would certainly love to be able to merge multiple sources into one. Period.

In Topic: FamilySearch a fantastic tool

02 December 2015 - 03:50 PM

I suppose I need to clarify this. When I seek additional information from FamilySearch (FS), I click on WebSearch. This brings up the FS screen. It copies the birth date but the "Any Place" option is blank. In other words, it does not copy over the birth place that I have entered in RM7. Usually the first listing I get on the FS screen is the same name in a geographical area which is not what I am looking for. If I enter the birth place I have entered in RM, I often get a listing of the name I am looking for. My initial question was: Why doesn't the RM birth place carry over to FS? Is it RM's fault or is it FS's fault?

In Topic: Error when trying to mark "NOT DUPLICATE"

02 December 2015 - 09:23 AM

I imported another database that I didn't realize had a good many duplicates. I used Duplicate Merge to create a list of possible duplicates (by record number). I write down the the duplicates by record number and create a list with 20-30 names. From there, I make whatever edits are necessary. When I get the error message, I restart RM. When it seems to bog down, I use all 4 database tools and start anew. Bear in mind, I have 176,000+ names. I don't know if I am pushing RM to its extreme limits or whether this is an inherent problem. I think that every time I have a problem, any necessary fix benefits everyone. I'll leave that up to you.

Yes, I do that but it seems to happen on nearly each session.

In Topic: Duplicate list disappears when editing begins

06 October 2015 - 11:00 AM

Rene, that is what I am doing now. Merging one name invariably results in other related individuals requiring work. I would opt for the chance to send the list to a file, if that is possible. In the same vein, I would like to be able to edit the Index/Individual Information screen in a limited sense. Often there are duplicate facts--I would like to be able to delete individual fact lines.
