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.

OneNote | A Look Inside

I still have a few more notes to move over from Evernote but I am loving OneNote.  I keep to do lists, goals, projects, ideas, genealogy research and so much more in OneNote.  So what does my setup look like?  Lets take a look! {I usually use OneNote 2016 but I have tried the Windows 10 app and it works just as good.} The first screen shot below is OneNote 2016 and the second is from the Windows 10 app.  My first notebook is my task management notebook.  In this notebook I have my Inbox, which is my default section for incoming stuff, calendar and lists.  {Emails that I have sent to OneNote and screen clips go in my Inbox section.} The next notebook is for my blog, and then the Genealogy notebook is for research notes, then I have the GBT notebook which I use for notes and reminders for GeneaBloggersTribe, the Reference notebook is for things that don't belong in one of the other notebooks,  and the last notebook is the Archive. Lets take a closer look at some o

Marine Casualty Card Database

While I was writing Top 10 Blog Posts for 2019 I discovered that my top post was US Marine Casualty Cards from 2014.  Wow!  {There is also an update to the original post here  where I show some more information that was sent to me.}  I went back to read the post and discovered that the links no longer work.  I did a little digging and found a link to the Casualty Card Database at the Marine Corps University website.  At this site you click on the war you want to search and download a searchable spreadsheet.  Once you locate your Marine you send an email to request the card.  There are also links to download information about what the codes mean on the cards. I also found that you can search the U.S. Marine Corps Casualty Index, 1940-1958 , at Ancestry.com.  It gives the casualty date, type, unit, and service number.  There is a link to go to another website from the Ancestry database but that link does not work. {I believe it is the same as the link from my original post
