Hello all,


Probably a simple question and answered before but


Using a report, How could I get a list of people who, for example have a fact for particular census year?

In other words, get a list of people who have a fact for the 1800 census, for example.

Have you tried Lists>Source List and selected the Master source for that census year and Print?

If you don't really need a report but just need a list, then make a group with Census>Date>Equals>1800 as previously described, and display the group in the Group Sidebar or display the group by filtering by Group in the People View in the main viewing area of the screen.


The individual list previously described is extremely easy to use. It's a little harder but you can make a more compact list with a Custom report, using the same selection criteria.
