What might be a temprary alternative to Behold - Forum post by cp in General Discussion - 21 Jul 2015

I'll test - would be good to know. Do you have a test 5.5.1 file to hand? The two that come with Behold are olde stylee and customised for PAF and Legacy.

Yep, that all sounds good Louis!

What might be a temprary alternative to Behold - Forum post by cp in General Discussion - 21 Jul 2015

Hi Louis Yep, Behold will do it right. I was more concerned with having a 'correct' gedcom now, and adding the underscore myself was a simple step to 'regularise' it. If it created problems in FH then I wouldn't bother. Will Behold will offer the choice of gedcom 5.5 or 5.5.1? I don't know if FH will accept ...

probate... - Forum post by cp in Report a Problem - 21 Jul 2015

Hi Louis - thanks for your thoughts. Most probates are certainly within a year, but... Probate is one of those things (especially if there is a second one) that can occur many many years after the event. Doing a straw poll in just my 'to hand' records, I've got 1) died 1854, probate 1865; 2) died 1873, probate ...

probate... - Forum post by cp in Report a Problem - 19 Jul 2015

Hi Louis Very impressed with the new version so far! Worth the wait! One little wrinkle (rather than bug) is in how probate is being handled (you may think I've got a fixation with probate as it was me who suggested in March 2012 that it usually came after death :) ). Anyway this is a typical message I'm ...

Add version to behold-setup.exe - Forum post by cp in Feature Suggestions - 19 Jul 2015

How about having the plain behold-setup.exe zipped into a file with the version? When you unzip, it general creates an outer folder with the version and the file within is as as virgin as you intend. Some people are nervous of downloading exposed 'exe' files anyway!

What might be a temprary alternative to Behold - Forum post by cp in General Discussion - 19 Jul 2015

Hi Louis and Arnold I've been using Family Historian heavily (pending Behold!) and with one small caveat* it's gedcoms are accepted by Behold without any errors or cautions. FH uses Gedcom as its file system so there is no conversion to think of. Cheers, Colin * FH allows you to create custom events and ...

How many sources/citations is too many? - Blog comment by cp - 19 Jan 2014

Interesting thoughts, as usual My solution is to record and process all my sources and reasoning in a dedicated program (I'm actually using GenQuiry, but did look at Evidentia as well). Such a program can be used in so many different workflows, but my aim is to end up with a single 'conclusion' document that ...

Features Creep, Part 2 - Blog comment by cp - 12 Sep 2013

Well, you are both right, you are both wrong! Bad design does hold back otherwise good feature enhancements and lead to allegations of bloatware. But... extending your argument, you might as well have one MS Office program that does EVERYTHING!!! so long as it has a Ribbon to just show the most common ...

Probate - Forum post by cp in Report a Problem - 19 Mar 2012

I noticed your recent blog post regarding correct ordering of dates (eg burial after death - which behold does correctly out of the box). Can I note that probate also must happen after death (and almost always after burial/cremation - I can only think of very esoteric reasons that would invert that!). Behold, ...
