producing report of all ancestors

Postby jbrooks » 12 Jun 2018 21:30

Just wondering how I can produce an output of all related ancestors including their individual facts (BMD, occupations etc). It would be great to include associated media files links although just a nice to have.

Sorry, but you will need to give us a few more clues to what you want.

What exactly do you mean by "all related ancestors"?
Related to who? Perhaps the File Root or may be somebody else?
Does it include everyone, including by marriage, or any other partnership?
Does it include descendants of those ancestors, such as cousins, and their spouses ancestors, etc?
OR maybe you mean just the direct line ancestors ~ parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, etc?

You can select any combination of Individual records to include in Reports.
In the Select Records dialogue try using the Add Relatives and Add/Remove using Query buttons, or Named Lists tab, as explained in Knowledge Base > Individual Summary Report > Select Records for example.

What exactly do you mean by "associated media"?
Photos attached to Individual and Family records?
Images attached to Facts?
Documents attached to Source Citations?
All the above are mostly included by default. Which ones have you found missing?

Would you prefer a tabulated summary of all Facts, or a narrative style report?
See Knowledge Base > Standard Report Types.

What types of Report have you tried, and exactly what problems have you experienced.
