I created a GEDCOM of everyone in my database except living and recently deceased people, and some others with unknown dates, and I had checked them all as "Living." For exporting from the database, I had checked "Privatize living people" and had left the defaults, "Full Name," and "Full date and place." Upon importing the GEDCOM, some of these individuals are included, still with the check mark for "Living." What would account for this?
As an alternative, is there a way to remove quite a large group of people (living, recently deceased) all at once from the database rather than one at a time or one family at a time?
