An incoming gedcom held birth dates but was often missing death dates for deceased ancestors.  So they have a check in the Living box. I'd like to uncheck the Living box for all who were born in or before 1919.  Is there a way to perform a mass update? 

 

Within the Group process, I can Mark all the Living, then create Find logic to identify those I need to change.  Using the Next button, they come up one at a time and can be changed using the Edit Individual button.  Then check the Living Box, click Save, Click Close. Rinse and repeat.

 

I was hoping there might be something with less clicks.
