Cause of death

Postby gumtree » 16 Jun 2019 12:20

Is it possible to collate all the cause, place and age at death of my ancestors please?
My family has requested a list with this information. Do I just have to make a separate list myself or can the programme do this as it does places, occupations and names etc.
Thank you,

You can produce that information with a Query.

Start with View > Standard Queries > Age at Death (all) that lists everyone with an Age at Death.
Use the cog menu Save As Custom Query and give it a new Query Name.
Then on the Column tab, add Death Place and Death Cause by selecting from Fields on left via Individual + Events + Death + Place> and then repeat for Cause.

If you want to include everyone, even if their Age at Death is not known, then on the Rows tab, delete the existing filter, and replace with Add unless %INDI.DEAT% is null.

Finally use the menu options to Print or Save Results to File.
