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.

Stitching Update…Lots of pics

LHN Family Sampler (excuse my crooked house…not sure why it looks like that)American Flag Quilt Sampler by Rosewood Manor.  I love stitching on this; I did however run out of the Brethren Blue.  I decided to put this down for a little while and have picked up the family sampler again.A close up!HAED Natures Mourning.  I have not worked on this in a while.  I plan to stitch on LHN Family Sampler until Friday and then work on this next.Last but not least is a little freebie that I did before Christmas.

Family Sampler Update

I was hoping to get more done on this this past week but another trip to the ER on Wednesday night did not leave much time for stitching.  I was very dehydrated and my potassium was low and I found out that I have a UTI.  I was really surprised about the UTI because I did not have the normal symptoms.  The antibiotic has really been helping.  I was not feeling well and just laying on the couch but then I got dizzy and fell so Jason had to come home from work and take me to the ER.  Yesterday was the first that I really spent any time stitching but I did get a lot done. 
I switched to my HAED Nature’s Mourning for this week.  So far today I have gotten a lot done.  Hopefully this week I will stay healthy and want to cross stitch.
Enjoy your week!
Happy Stitching!!

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
