I would like to have the list of living unmatched separated from the dead unmatched for easier follow up in my Roots Magic7 list.

You can achieve that by creating groups and using the top level filter in the FamilySearch Person Tools to filter to it. You can add people to the group based on their living flag setting. On the Share Data and Ordinance tab you can open the Edit Person screen. The Group button will let you add or remove people from the group as you come across them. This will help keep your list current.


The other thing I have done is color code all my living, and those born within the last 110 years. That way I know to skip over them in the lists.
