Creating a search list from tags in Legacy

** This post was updated to add more information and more screen shots on creating a search list **
_________________________________________________________________________________

My last post was about using tags in Legacy so for this one I am going to show you how I make those tags work for me.

The image below is the Advanced Tagging window (I showed you how to get to this window in my previous post).


In the blue box (in the image above) is tag# 4 and it shows that there are 188 individuals that need Find A Grave events added.

I did a search in my database to find all of the individuals tagged on tag# 4.  Go to Search and then Find and the Search window below will open and then to the Detailed Search tab.  In the image below, you can see the Search window and my search conditions to find all individuals who are tagged on tag# 4.  In the bottom left of the window make sure Clear List before this search is checked and then click on Create List.


In the next window your Search List will open {image below}.  From here I can click on each individual and add their Find A Grave event.


I can work on each individual from this screen or I can select a person from the list and go to their individual information screen to work on them.  When I am ready to move on to the next person I untag the one I am finished with and then click on Search and then Search List to bring up the list I created above.

{In my database I add Find A Grave as an event with all of the information from the memorial in the notes section, image below.}


The image below has the information added to the notes section and the event has the source added.


At the bottom of the above image is a check box that is checked to exclude this event from being marked a problem when I run a potential problems report.  Legacy would mark it a problem because the date of the event is after the death of Charles since I use the date the memorial was created on Find A Grave.

If you have any questions leave them in the comments below.

Using Evernote for my planner

In my last post, I mentioned how I am using Evernote as my planner; a few of you have had some questions so here I am.

I started using Evernote the week of December 23rd.  I was looking for a new planner for 2017 and I was not liking anything that I was finding.  I keep lists of all sorts of things in Evernote so it only made sense to try and find a way to use Evernote for my planner.  I did a little bit of research and found these templates for 2017.  With a little adjusting, I was able to make the weekly template work for me.

I first created a folder called Day Planner {I put the folder in my Inbox stack because I spend the most time here}.

!Inbox -- default notebook.  Anything coming into Evernote goes here to be sorted and dealt with {It is piling up today}. Ideally, this is emptied every day but for me, it is more like a few times a week.

!TO DO -- This is the notebook that holds some of those lists.  My genealogy to do list, my blog to do list and my brainstorming list live here…

US Marine Casualty Cards

Earlier this week I got my copy of Family Tree Magazine and I was reading an article that led me to World War II History Network and from there I found a link to an article about the United States Marine Corp making their casualty cards searchable.  You can find the database at Casualty Cards Database.
Fred Thomas, my husbands great uncle, was in WWII and in the Marines.  I searched the database and found :

On the first page it states : While the cards for World War II through Korea are not classified, however, they can often be very graphic.Therefore, to maintain the dignity and honor of the Marines, the individual cards will only be released, upon request, on a case by case basis.To request a card, please send an email tohistory.division@usmc.milor a request in writting to: United States Marine Corps History Division

I immediately sent an email {about 12:30 am because I don't sleep} requesting more information a…
