Query:Fact ~ All Empty Facts


Finds all Facts (Events/Attributes) without any subordinate fields. i.e. No Date, Age, Place, Address, Cause, Note, Media, Citation, etc, etc. These empty Facts can then be easily reviewed, selected, and deleted as necessary.

Revised March 2016 to exclude each Emigration Event with only a To field, and each Immigration Event with only a From field.

To delete such empty Facts once you have the Result Set on screen:

  • Click on the Fact column header to sort into name order.
  • Highlight all fields for a Fact name to be deleted by a click on the first one and a Shift-click on the last one.
  • Press the Delete key or use Edit > Delete.
  • After reading the warning message click OK.​
