Missing sentence template for "Immigration to United States"

27 December 2018 - 11:54 AM

I use the fact type "Immigration to the United States" but when I print a narrative report I get "[NEED TO DEFINE SENTENCE:Immigration to United States]".  I didn't create this fact type - it came with Roots Magic - so shouldn't the sentence template be in the product as well?  I figure this problem must have come up before but I couldn't find it when I searched in Google.  Does anyone know how I can get this fact type's template?

How to find empty date of death but place of death is present

14 October 2018 - 11:12 AM

I've tried to create a custom report using the selection criteria of "Death date is blank" and "Death place is not blank".  When this didn't work I changed the second criterion to "Death place details is not blank."  Neither works.  Has anyone created a query that shows people whose date of death is empty but whose place of death is not blank.  I want to identify these people so that I can turn the living flag off.


Relationship Chart - Default for Person 2

04 September 2018 - 03:59 PM

I use the wonderful Relationship Chart a lot.  Most often I want to put myself into the "Person 2" field, but it's irritating to have to scroll through the name list to locate my name.  Would it be possible to establish a default for Person 2 that would be used if it were left blank?  Maybe you could make the default be the "root" person of the tree you're in.  (I admit that I have no idea whether you have this data element available to you.)

RM abended when I was exiting the FamilySearch interface.  I had to force RM off using Windows ctrl/alt/delete task manager.  This is from the Windows event log:
