The Select People list does not include DOB as a sort key, this is a real problem when you have 100+ John Smiths.

 

Nothing I have read suggests this has been fixed in Rootsmagic 7.

Correct. RM7 Select People does not subsort identical names on the Birth Year. That is surprising, given that Select People looks like RootsMagic Explorer which does.

Renee, to save me double posting, could you move this topic to RM7 Issues thread.
