Re: detection of isolated groups

Hi, I have just made a test in Heredis 2021 and it seems to work in the way you mention. The search for isolated persons only returns persons without any link, which is I guess what the developers had in mind. There is still not feature to search for "isolated families" or "isolated groups". At leas...

Re: new version 20.2 of 30 jan 2020

I also got a notification of the update and could install it without problems. Heredis published some information about this update in the French forum but not yet in the English forum, for some reason. Here's what they published: https://www.heredis.com/forums/fr/viewtopic.php?f=65&t=33808 ette mis...

Re: This forum in terminal decline?

One thing that I have just realised is that the forums do not seem to come up as results in Google when you make a search. The only way to find out about the forum is by going to the Help and Support page in Heredis (from the programme Help menu) and then click the Self-helf community link. It could...

Re: This forum in terminal decline?

I have the impression that the problem is not lack of people answering questions but more lack of questions. I prefer asking my (more or less intelligent) questions here rather than via Heredis support because others might find them useful as well. I have benefitted myself from other people's questi...

Re: All surnames in upper case in Heredis Online?

Hi, Mike, Sorry for coming back to you so late but thanks a lot for your help those links. They have some really interesting suggestions, not just for Heredis Online. I still have to have a closer look at them although I am not sure how I can keep using special particles and still make Heredis Onlin...

Re: Creating sources in Heredis - best practices

Hi, Bradley,

Thanks for the pointer about the Evidence Explained book. Luckily it is available as ebook and I am wading through it.

Place names in Initial caps in Heredis 2020

Dear all, I have noticed a small annoyance in Heredis 2020 which I was not having in Heredis 2019 (I just double checked): Location names are shown in initial caps in the Immediate Family view and in the data view. For example: the town name "Alcaclá de Henares" is shown as "Alcalá De Henares" ("De"...

Re: "Living" event incosistent with "Death after" event?

Dear all, Thanks all for your comments. I think you are right. I was looking at it from a different angle "It is not totally wrong" but you are right that it is not totally correct to say somebody died "after 1850" if we know that he was alive in 1855. It is not bug but actually a useful feature to ...

Re: Creating sources in Heredis - best practices

Hiya, I have exported my Heredis database to Gedcom to see how Heredis treats the "Source name" (AKA "Title") and the "Document" field and I noticed something interesting. The "Document" field is exported to the Gedcom "TITL" field under the "SOURC" (Source) structure. The "Source name" ("Title") fi...
