Summary of family names

Post by michaels8 » Mon Jul 08, 2019 3:50 am

Is there a report or a way to customise to print a unique summary of all the family names in a tree ?

Imagine i have a tree with

Smith Bob
Smith Mary
Smith Harry

Jones Fred
Jones Julie
Jones Jean

I want a report that unique names = 2
Jones
Smith

Very useful for DNA research - I can send a list of the names in the tree to potential matches without sending the tree.

Hi, Michael,

That's a great idea. I had not thought using creating a list of unique surnames.

I think you can achieve this from the Surnames Index.

Go to Tools-> Surnames Index.

In the Surnames Index dialog box, click Print... (a bit counterintiuitive).

You get another dialog box for congiuring your print preferences.

Instead of "OK", click ·Export". This will create an RTF file with all the unique surnames.

Daniel
