Is it expected that RM8 will also be SQLite based?

Thanks, Tom. And thanks so much for writing so many useful routines for the use of RM users.




#95744 First RM8 Blog Entry

Posted by robertjacobs0 on 19 October 2019 - 07:35 AM in Discussion

The sixth RM8 blog entry has been posted.  http://blog.rootsmagic.com/

 

Excellent news, especially including the unblocking of the main screen when editing screens(!) are open.




#95772 Cascade lastname change

Posted by robertjacobs0 on 22 October 2019 - 11:14 AM in Discussion

You can use search and replace for surnames. Once the screen opens, you can choose between "replace" and "replace all." "Replace all"  obviously isn't suitable in this case because you evidently have people who kept the original surname.

 

Unless you have a very large number of people to screen, search & replace is still probably your best bet. RootsMagic won't, AFAIK, descend the ladder.

 

Another option would be to make a named group consisting of the person who changed the name and all of his descendants. You could export the named group to a new database, make the change globally (i.e., "replace all"), import the people back into the main database and use the merge function to make it all coherent again. The first method looks better to me.




#95774 Family tree with everybody?

Family Historian 6.2 offers a chart of "all ancestors and relatives" which might come closer to what you want than an ordinary hourglass chart.
