I am using Rootsmagic 5, is it possible to find someone on the database by the place they live? I know the name of the town in which this person lives but I just can't remember their name so was hoping there was a way I can pull them up with just the town, can someone advise please ? Jacrista

Do a find on Any Fact>Place>contains> (name of the town). To get into the find, click the Looking Glass icon on the tool bar then click on the Find box at the top of the screen.

Go to Lists > Place list and highlight the place. Then click Print. With "Print events in a single place" selected you will see everyone using that place when you generate the report.
