Topics I've Started

Individual Summary Report

31 January 2013 - 04:44 PM

When you "design" an Individual Summary Report you have a choice to add - Spouses /Children. But when the report is created the heading says - Marriages /Children.
I think the heading there should be the same - Spouses /Children, simply because it sometimes will have spouses that are not married to the chosen Individual.

How to change a family fact?

24 January 2013 - 06:21 PM

In old Danish/Norwegian the act of getting a child out of wedlock. was called - Leiermål. Some years ago I created a Family fact called Leiermål. This works all right in RootsMagic, but if I export a gedcom to a friend who runs Legacy, this Family fact is imported as a Marriage fact (in a way the opposite meaning as intended).

How do I solve this problem? Do I have to change each one of them? I have many because I work with genealogy for a whole parish.

Ancestors with children report

29 March 2012 - 04:12 AM

This is an old wish and a reminder. For about 6 years I've been questioning an improvement to the Narrative Raport called Ancestors with children. I miss an option to include all spouses and their children. Lacking this option in RootsMagic has annoyed me for years. I find this option necessary to get an overview, especally when you work with genealogy for whole parishes and not only your own ancestors (but also concerning them). To achieve this I need other programs. But I like RootsMagic so much and hope my own program can do this.

A couple of times RootsMagican has given what I have understood as promises to work with this option. Since we have got a new Wish list I highligt this wish again.

A button for each spouse

Instead of one button and the digit (2),(3)..., I would like X buttons - one for each spouse. Not important, just cosmetics?, but I think it will give an enhancement to the Family View.
