I just upgraded to Legacy 8 and I love it so far! I am running into a little snag, though -- the keyboard shortcuts listed on the back of the Legacy 8 book (like NS to add a new son, or EW to edit wife, etc.) do not seem to be working. Do I need to enable those somehow? It's late and I'm tired, so it's entirely possible I'm missing something obvious... :) Help, please?
Responding to my own question - I did a File Maintenance - Check/Repair, and the 'missing' entries have returned.
I maintain my genealogy database using Legacy on my desktop, but use TNG online.
On 12th October, I uploaded a new GEDCOM to TNG with 167896 individuals and 70351 families.
Since then, I have added around 100 individuals to the Legacy database, but noticed last night the file now has just 165803 individuals and 69780 families.
I have not deleted any files, though I have merged two.
Is there a way I can identify the additions since 12th October and then add them back in to the GEDCOM?
Hi Pamela, that is exactly what I wanted. I was a bit unsure whether to unlink the parents from him or unlink him from his parents. I did have a look at the help but still was unsure.
Thanks a lot
Hi Carolyn. In the Legacy help menu, it has instructions for unlinking a child from parents and siblings, but keeping his/her spouse and descendants.
Unlinking a Child from Parents
When you choose to unlink an individual from their parents, you are telling Legacy to break the tie that exists between that person and their parents and their siblings (if any). Unlinking a person does not delete the individual from the family file. It simply disconnects him or her from having a child relationship with the current parents, and a brother-sister relationship with any siblings. The person would still remain linked to his or her spouse(s) and children.
Is this what you wanted?
Hi, it's me again,
I am pretty sure that I have put the wrong parents to my 3rd Gt Grandfather. I need to unlink him to them and to his grandparents and also his siblings. How do I do it so that he stays where he is along with all his descendants, so that I can add another parent to him
yes thank you Rick that is a great help. I couldn't find anything in Help that did.
Carolyn: Did you back up the images when you backed up your family tree file. If you did back up the images you have to unzip them and put them in the exact same folder on his computer. That way Legacy can find those images. That is the main reason Legacy installs on your C drive and not in the program folder. When he opens the zip file for the images it will show him the path to them so he will have to put them in the same place. If by chance you have put all your pictures in your documents folder he will have to reattach every image to the file on his computer as the paths will not be the same. HINT: On my computers I created a folder called Legacy Images on my C: drive and store all my images there. so no matter what computer I put my tree on all I need do is copy that folder and the images are in my tree when I open it. If you put the images where Legacy wants you to in its program folder then if your husband puts them in the same place the program will find them. Hope this helps.
I have sent a backup of my family files to my husbands computer to put on Legacy but the pictures are not on there.. How does he enter the multimedia files to his Legacy file.
Thank you, Brian.
At some point I had capitalized first letters resulting in 24,000+ 'Of's in place of 'of's (as in King Of/of France) - all now corrected!
