Local copy of scriptures from floppy product

In the mean time, if the old scripture product on floppies is still available, or if the new CDROM-based one is compatible, it's not difficult to have a local copy of the full text of the standard works and format it however you would like. If it would be of help to anyone, I have a small C program ...

Try having each of the ward "Send Membership data to Stake" (Found under "File") after they have entered the reports for the month. Naturally the stake will have to do a Send/Receive it get it. There is nothing under "File" (or anywhere else I have searched) by that ti...

That forwards you to the familysearch.com page that has individual languages but not the multi-languge download. But I guessed the URL to the multi-language download by looking at that page. Thanks for the correction. I didn't go through the registration panel to see what was actually beyond it. I ...

I finally found the PAFAllLangs.exe version of PAF. There is not a link to it on the download page, but it can be obtained from http://ftp.ldscatalog.com/PAF5AllLangs.exe . It includes an option to install an international unicode font that works great. They didn't make it as easy to find as I woul...

With that enthusiastic an outburst, please don't leave the rest of us in the dark about the cause of your excitement: 1) you just got in to the FamilySearch beta; 2) it's Friday and the quitting bell just ran; 3) a close relative just won the lottery; 4) ...

It would surprise me if the architects of the new system did not think of this type of situation and do whatever would make the system work in the best way possible. In the current beta, when looking at multiple parents, there is a way to specify which set/pair of possible parents you want to see. I...

Combining vs. separating people in the new FamilySearch

OK, that's good to hear. Letting the users do the combining of duplicates is undoubtedly the right thing to do, but it has a downside: there's going to be a whole lot of combining to do. In the current beta, many of my ancestors had several duplicated parents and/or several duplicated spouses. Many...

I don't believe I said the MS core fonts were on the PAF 5 CD. Here's where you can get fonts: PAF 5 international unicode font: CD or download (the AllLangs version mentioned earlier). MS core fonts: download from Sourceforge. Oh, if you want to use a Wine version different from what your distribut...

Alex, I'd love to help you get PAF working for you. (I'm a volunteer maintainer of the PAF 5 AppDB page at WineHQ.) Please email me, PM me here, post here, or post on the AppDB page. I'd love to help. What version of PAF are you using? What version of Wine are you using? What's your Linux distributi...

I switched to using Linux over a year ago. Recently I tried running PAF in wine. It went through the installation OK, and it searched, and found my GEDCOM file. When I tried to enter data, it crashed. No complaints, I didn't expect it to get as far as it did. So I went with PhpGedView , which was s...
