Suggestion: Provide option check box when creating reports/lists/charts to "Hide Date of Birth (DOB) for Living People".
On April 9, 2017 I wanted to create a simple Descendant List report to take to a funeral. I wanted to hide the DOB for Living people for obvious protection of privacy/personal information reasons. I could not find how to do it and reached out to the Roots Magic Users Facebook group for help.
I was told this was not possible without exporting a GEDCOM and creating a new database to use for the report.
Here is a link to that Facebook conversation: https://www.facebook...84197045101178/
This seems like a difficult work-around for something that could and should be built in as an option (using the Living filter) when generating any output.
Protecting living people's DOB is critical in this day and age of identity theft. As a genealogist it is also essential research information to store in our Roots Magic databases. Report, list and chart output to share is also critical and should include this basic protection option for any output. I would even suggest that "Hide DOB for Living People" should be the default to prevent inadvertent disclosure by RM users. For secure situations the user could deselect that option.
