Im trying to find out the person associated with a specific place. The list place feature just lists the place not who is linked to that place. I know how to generate a custom report for specific facts like birth or burial to list the place. But I want to list everyone across all facts associated with a specific place.
My reason for this is a boneheaded error on my part. I mistakenly entered a date in the place field and didnt catch it till much later. So I have a place now listed as 10-1-1887. I cant see who this is attached too. I can delete the place from the place list but Id like to discover who this is attached to because Im pretty sure the date for the event is blank. If I knew who this was I could replace the date with the correct one.
Thanks in advance

Go to the place list and highllght the incorrect place. Click "print," then "generate report." That should do it.

It's hardly intuitive. I've often thought the term "print" on the place list should have been "report" or some such.

And there is no Print button (or Report button) for Place Details. Which also is not intuitive.
