In Topic: How are you using Shared Facts?

It sounds to like you are describing the use of Life Capsules in Personal Historian.

The only real negative issue with RM's Shared Facts are that they are not a standard GEDCOM element, and so would not transfer well to other genealogy programs. But there are definitely RM users who like to use Shared Facts. I use only a few Family Facts, and those are NOT the same as Shared Facts.

 

My habit means including a separate individual fact for each person involved in a common event - your suggestion to use Shared Facts --- I don't know if I'd want to go that direction. But I also do not use Personal Historian, so I can't comment on the ease or complexity of generating stories with that program.

Can you edit your post and put it in a readable color??

32K records is not a very big database, in absolute terms. SQL can handle a billion.

 

I find that when I go several days between Windows reboots, and have 4 browsers open (each with 5-10 windows), I run into memory errors and things act weird. But I've been using RM for 15 years, and have only rarely had an access violation error. When I completed the type of maintenance that Renee suggested, things were back to normal.

 

On Windows, RM runs much more effectively (faster, fewer memory issues) with 16 GB of RAM. 8 GB and 12 GB aren't quite enough. My database has over 424K records, and I learned many years ago that I can't afford a computer fast enough that it will always be faster than me. So, I always have various tasks that take longer than I'd wish....

That error message doesn't give enough info for a certain answer.

 

What version of Windows?

How much RAM?

How many records in database?

How long since last reboot?

 

Even these questions may not pinpoint a cause....

Yes. There are some differences in mouse clicks and hot keys, but if you use the menu system, it is the same on both PC and Mac.
