I have been looking, unsuccessfully, for the place that my great great grandparents came from in Ireland. His name was Michael Skiffington, born in Ireland about 1823. He married Mary Quinn. In 1848 their first child was born in Philadelphia, Pa. I have been unable to find any passenger records on them. Assuming they married in Ireland but don't know that for sure. I have everything I can find on them in the United States, but nothing gives any indication of when they came here or where in…See More

I'm trying to determine how to source the notes from the historian. Did he provide you with references to each clip?
He sent you really good stuff.
Separately, I'm going through your family group sheet (FGS) line by line, comparing your notes to those I have in my research log. You have some dates and items I don't have ... but I have some recorded that you aren't showing. Will send that comparison along to you when I have it done. Ditto, believe we need to add the census located as sources ... if we don't, no doubt one of us will search for them again (LOL).
More later. Yes... great progress. --GJ
FGS rec'd and it's in pdf form!
In the event you and Russ further solve the mystery, you can "SEND" the FGS from FTM to YOURSELF (to your own email address). When it arrives, you can open the email and save the file to your hard drive ...
It's a work around, but one that works!
Sounds like both you and the historian did good jobs!
Will send you my personal email address by private note in the event we need to use the "send" option on the FGS. If it comes, however, as a FTM file (rather than pdf), I won't be able to open. --GJ
All in one printers do like to 'own' your machine. In this case, however, your computer would ordinarily seek out the PDF printer and ignore any problems with your physical printer.
One option you might try is setting the PDF printer as the defaul printer, then trying the print function. After you've tried that sequence, you can then switch the default back to you physical printer.

FTM 2009: Help creating Family Group Sheet in PDF file format
Hoping someone will help me with output from my FTM 2009 file. I'd like to create a Family Group Sheet (FGS) in some electronic form- prefer a pdf--something I can attach to queries I post on GenealogyWise.
I'm not a techie, but have found the FTM commands for "Print, Share and Export." Now what!
Thank you for any assistance you are able to provide. --Eileen.
