In Topic: Incorporating DNA as a proof?

20 July 2018 - 07:06 AM

I created a DNA fact list   Called "DNA Anc" Name: DNA Anc

Abbrev: DNA Anc
Fact type: Personal


  Date: Yes
  Place: No
  Description: Yes

  Publish online / Create HTML: Yes
  Group sheets: Yes
  Narrative reports: Yes
  Individual summary: Yes
  Lists: Yes

Sentence template:
This [person] shows a DNA test performed by ancestry.com and on ADT's Circle's <[Desc]> < [Date]>.


If you are on FamilyTree DNA or 23 and me  change Anc to fit.    I used the description field to tell whose information fits. and then in the Records Management part give more details. 


I have a Source Templates also. which includes  using a copy to my specifications "[!adt Book, general [Source within a Source] use"

In Topic: Nondestructive Restore to the Same Folder

I also use the same file folder but add manually the date to the file.  Simple solution for me.

In Topic: Spouses of children in ancestor narrative reports

30 June 2018 - 07:47 AM

I have no problem with Narrative Reports except for all the extra white spacing in the reports.   To get spouses, I use NGSQ (modified Register).  Or try NEHGS (register).  I would try all of them and see which one you like the best.  I always transfer the .rtf to MS Word for clean up and anything else that I see.   Then I have a copy in backup as to  what is in RM..


I should have said my Narrative Reports when finally printed in MSWord with an added Cover Sheet, Table of Contents plus both indexes and biography.

Thanks Jerry,  I think I was doing in both ways you explained.  Trying the quickest way to get information in a clients database.  Will watch what it does...  Thanks 

In Topic: Adding parents in Win 10 and upd of RM

Said it worked too quickly.  When I went to add a spouse, from Pedigree Chart/Ancestor Chart, I got two spouses, first one is blank and the second is the one I entered.  WHY?
