Facts not resourced

Postby SpencerDudeUK » 12 Jun 2018 09:20

Before I get in too deep with the number of people in my tree, I would like to see if there's a way of querying all the facts to see a) if there is no resource attached, and b) to see if there is an image attached to the resource (N.B. Type 1 and type 2). Some items are added as a type 1 resource in their own right, but many are generic resources with citation media added.

When you're adding people in, you 'know' facts and add them, saying 'Personal Knowledge', or if you have the BMD reference, etc. I would like to keep tabs on those I need to revisit to add the certification, etc., as and when I find it...?

A custom query will find which facts have no sources. I am attaching one version

I assume by "Resourced" you mean "Sourced", there are lots of Queries in the downloads which show facts with the sources attached to them. Personally I use sources such as "Verbal - Jane Taubman" to show information taken from others. These all have a type of Verbal. When I have more concrete evidence I promote that source above the Verbal one in the list.

Start with Knowledge Base > Downloads and Links ~ Query Type: Fact and choose those Queries that get close to what you need and then customise them as necessary.
Front runners would be:
Knowledge Base > Query:Fact ~ Citation Details
Knowledge Base > Query:Fact ~ Unsourced Facts
