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 in Windows 10

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:

Sharing database with Mac user

17 November 2017 - 06:21 PM

Is there a way I can send a backup of my PC-resident Roots Magic 7 database to someone who uses a Mac and who does not have Roots Magic installed?  For some reason I recall reading something about how it's possible to create a "read only" version of Roots Magic that would enable someone else to navigate my database on their PC.  I guess the question is a two part question:  does this "read only" version of Roots Magic 7 exist?, and can it navigate the PC/Mac divide?
