147Re: FTM #7
- Aug 19, 2002Hi Bev,
Just saw your query. I have FTM #7 and, last week, I tried to print a list
of all individuals on the database. What I ended up doing was a custom
report, similar to what Elizabeth recommended to you. I selected name,
birth date, birth location, death date, death location and spouse. The
query generated, 1258 individuals in the custom report. Instead of printing
the report, I copied and pasted it into an excel spreadsheet. I used the
spreadsheet to sort the data..
I then generated a Kinship Report for myself and also copied/pasted it into
an excel spreadsheet. The kinship query generated 1114 individuals. It was
interesting to sort by relationship: all 1st cousins, 1st once removed,
grandmothers, great grandmothers etc.
I generated both reports to see how many individuals I have versus those
related. Also because I wanted more information about individuals than I
could get from the kinship report as I could not customise it.
I found that using the custom report and spreadsheet combination very
useful. A printed "All Individual Report" is a great reference to have on
hand when visiting relatives. I also sorted one report into birth location
as I'm often asked how many relatives in Australia, Scotland, etc. I also
used the custom report/spreadsheet for identifying and separating blank
fields, rather than getting them all together in the Data Error Report.
Please email me off-list if you would like to discuss this topic in more
