Hi Peter,

Sorry, but links in the Relationships field are automatically suppressed.

If the worst comes to the worst. I can always delete any duplicates by hand.

regards,
Bob

Just a thought:

I have a line "On this day in .... Jan | Feb | .....  " in the QuickSearch, where any anniversaries on this calendar day in those months are shown.

Perhaps another line would help ..
"In the Month of .... Jan | Feb | .....  " where all entries for a particular month are shown.

Opinions ?

Bob

I hadn't even found the "On this day" search!

Any extra searches are good - making it's use as a research tool more powerful. Given date "wobble" (especially regarding death and burial dates) an "in this week" search would be better (in my opinion) where you deliver dates +/- 3 days of the given date.

Here are the pre 1900 dates from November's "On this day", the last 6 can be posted as they are, but they are missing coding for Australia, Canada and Mexico, when I was doing my own it was easy - if I did not know the codes I just posted them the normal way, perhaps you can insert them if you have the time.

P.S. I have just re-discovered that you had already extracted the November data as a test/example - curses!

Bob - Here are the pre 1900 dates from December's "On this day", the last 8 can be posted as they are, but they are missing coding for Australia, Canada, USA and India, when I was doing my own it was easy - if I did not know the codes I just posted them the normal way, perhaps you can insert them if you have the time (or tell me how I can discover them).

Thanks Peter :)

I've added everything to the database.

I use the following codes:
AUS - Australia
CAN - Canada
IND - India
USA - United States.
There aren't that many "foreigners" so any others I can add by hand :)

Bob - here are the pre 1900 dates from the "On this day in January" thread.  It seems to be much quicker / easier entering the stuff from the threads than it was loading my own!

Perhaps because you had to search for your data within all your files, whereas here the data is all ready for extracting ??

Thanks for your work on this,
Bob

Yes - that is most of it I suppose, but there is much less sidetracking as well!

Anyway here are the pre 1900 events and dates I found in February's "On this day"
