Hi All,

 

Is there a way to generate a report based on a specific source?  For instance I have tons of linked and unlinked individuals and I think it would be helpful to pull up, say, all individuals with the source of "Census, 1860, Georgia, Emanuel County" (or other existing source).  Bonus would be all "Martin" or other criteria but I'd settle for all individuals.

 

I know there are other ways to do this for that example ("who was where" list) but there are other sources as well that I'd benefit from using this sort of report.

 

Thanks in advance,

Skampp

Another option for a report is to use the Individual report, selecting names by a group. 

 

Select group:  New group> Find> Any fact - Source - Bibliography contains - "text of name of source"

 

Check each name then click OK.  Give the group a name.  Then use that group to print an Individual List.
