Topics I've Started

Citation Printing

07 August 2013 - 10:25 AM

Is there anyway to turn on and off the "Source Details"? I would like to add page numbers to "Source Details", but would like to be able to turn on or off when printing. I have a "Master Source" which references a book. I use this "Master Source" for multiple fact types and for a great number of names in my database. I would like to turn off "Source Details" and show a single reference to the "Master Source" without page numbers, instead of 4000 entries in end notes or foot notes with page numbers.

Choosing a Source

Is there any rules I should follow when selecting a SOURCE in Roots Magic 6? Example: I have a birth certificate for my grandfather I wish to SOURCE. Should I use,

Birth Certificate, local level
Birth Registration, Local level, certificate; Civil vital records, name element first
Ref: [E!, p 65]


Vital Records (local, certificates)
Local Birth, Death, Marriage certificates; jurisdiction & series are lead elements in source list

Ref: [EE, QC-9, p 425]


Source usage report

I know there is a "source list" report available, but is there a way to select a source and run a report which will show each time it is used. Example: Source X is referenced for these people on these facts.
