I have no idea how hard this would be to program == just as the 'Roots Magic News and updates' pops up when RM is first opened, could we have a listing of important family events (birthdays, anniversaries, death dates, etc.) that occurred on this day. It would have to have some limiters that could be chosen like only living, only direct ancestors or descendants of root person or other designee.  I would love to have others opinion on this -- is it something others would enjoy?

This would be great, especially if there was a column showing relationship to a specific person. Listing of birth, death, and marriage dates with person's name and RIN, plus relationship. Even if cant be programmed with startup, having a report like that is something I would really make use of

Try running Reports > Kinship List on a central person in your database.


A report with all of the info you just asked for would be 3 times longer...
