In Topic: Burial Place report with names

05 September 2019 - 01:07 PM

I do list the cemetery name as the place rather than a detail, for example "Archibald England Cemetery, Moatsville, Barbour, West Virginia", I'm not sure that is the correct way to do it but it felt right.

 

All this info sounds very good folks, I should be able to make something work that will cover what I am looking for. Thanks as usual for all the help!

Thanks Jerry, that makes sense now.


In Topic: Color coding is not sticking

No, no crossing as of yet as I am only working on one branch now. I color coded each of my grandparents and then began work on only one group, the red group. All the other three lines are basically waiting to be worked on. So I started on my red line, which, not that it matters, is my paternal granddad line, entered great grandparents, no problem, they were red. Then entered great great grandparents and no color, just whatever the default is, I assume black. So I go back to my grandad, who is still red, and when you hit tools and color code, the selection I made previously to set him red and carry it out to ancestors doesn’t show as selected even though he is still red. I imagine I will have to elect it with each and every successive generation, which kind of defeats the purpose. If color is available as a selection, I could pick it on each and every generation but shouldn’t have to if apply to ancestors is selected. I am lost.

In Topic: Entering military service

I think I see, so in the date cell, just enter "10 may 1982 - 2 jan 1992" and it will take that and know nearly 10 years in the military. I was just trying to avoid entering one military fact for entering and one military fact for discharge unless that was the right thing to do. In a case where you don't have all the stations or don't want all that entered, a "from-to" would be ideal. Thanks for all the suggestions to all.
