How does one print a list of everyone buried in a certain cemetery, where the cemetery name is displayed in Place Details for a given location?  Reason, a road trip to photo all listed grave markers at that cemetery.

Click on "Print" at the top of the screen. with "Print events in a single place" selected for top level Places.

I would do it by making a Custom Report, selecting People to include, Select from list, Mark group, Select people by data fields, with

 

1st field Burial - Place - Contains  - cemetery city name

2nd field Burial - Place - Contains - cemetery name

 

You can use contains with just part of the name or equals with the full name.  If either of the 2 field names are too common, your can add a 3rd field for the state name.

This is a good approach and it's easy to use, but it might not meet everybody's needs. That's because Print only works with Places and not with Place Details. It is true that the Print for Places can as an option include Place Details information. But assuming that cemetery information were entered into Place Details, the report would include all the burials in all the cemeteries in the county, not just the one cemetery of interest. This limitation on Print is one of many areas of Place Details support that needs to be improved.

When I include "Place Details" in the print, I get a list that is sorted by the details with all the events in each cemetery grouped separately. Scroll down. Find the cemetery, copy and paste into a word processor.

When adding events to people, I create Groups for Where Born, Where Died and Where Buried. Then just add them to the correct groups. (ie: Jones Cemetery in Los Angeles CA, Born in Los Angeles, Died in Los Angeles). Good luck on your road trip.

Or, instead of dancing around the camp fire, Rootsmagic could add the long missing PRINT button to the Place Details pane, why have this on Place and NOT Place Details?

 

Also for those of us who have waited so long for this simple addition ADD the ability to Multiselect so if individual cemetery plots are noted they can all be selected.

 

I don't want to print out over 700 Place Details of Belfast and edit that down just to get a cemetery report, I'm sure others using Place Details also want a simplified method of reporting.
