Is there a way to find the most recent entry to the database, using RootsMagic 6 running under Windows 10?


Thank you for any assistance in this matter.

When viewing an individual in the main screen (Family or Pedigree View), select 'People' from the views (just above the individual facts but below the basic BDM info) and then scroll to the bottom of the list.


Kind regards,

That won't necessarily find the last person added because the People View may be sorted on any column. Add the Record Number column (labelled Rec#) through "Customize this view" and click on its heading to sort and then scroll in the direction of ascending numbers to the end which is the last person added.


If, rather, you want to go to the last person edited, you would add the column "Last edited" and sort on it and scroll to the latest date.
