In Topic: Including Repository info in the Bibliography

I know I'm off topic here, but I'm curious as to what the "_" at the beginning of each repository reference in sentence template does.

Ancestor Narrative report with 0 generations will get just that person with no family facts, spouse, children or parents.


This is great. Thanks, Renne. Didn't think this would work since the system keeps wouldn't allow a "0" entry, but it did the job.


Still wish there was a narrative for the family, though.

You have my vote on the ability to manually merge repositories as well.

The Narrative Report would actually work quite well for this, but you can't do this for single individual without getting family facts and, at the very least, the spouse's facts, forcing you to edit the report in another program. I would love to have the ability to print the report for just a single person (with or without spouse/family info). Being able to run a narrative report for a single family without all of the individual facts (save perhaps each individual's birth and death) would be a blessing, too.


Of course I realize the same data can be extracted in the Individual Summary and Family Group Sheet, but it's not in narrative form and personally it bugs me that the notes are put at the end of the reports, almost like they are afterthoughts, instead of immediately following their associate fact. Unfortunately, all genealogy programs I've used do this.

In Topic: Cause of Death Fact

Like Vyger I have always used the description field of the death fact for cause of death, but I understand this is a personal preference and agree no program should assume that a user wants to merge any facts. I would also caution RM when moving anything to the description field in the Death fact (also goes for birth, baptism, etc.)... many genealogy programs don't accept descriptions for "vital" facts. They are either moved to the notes or completely ignored/lost during the GEDCOM import process.
