Adapt the Outline Descendant Report.
When you want a list with every individual listed you could select
Individuals as Key and change "Generations to Show" to "Range: 1 through 1"
(otherwise you would get a very lengthy report). This will result in a
'record' for every individual, married or not, but does not include their
children and their descendants. They will have their own record of course.
It looks as you want notes included in the report, I assume these are event
notes. You will have to change that on the Content tab: Notes, select Event
and tick "in text". When there are notes in other locations (Individual or
Family) you want included, select that location too.
On the Style-tab, change Basic Events to "Abbreviate" to get "b. ..., d.
..." etc. or leave it to Brief for "born ... , died ...".
You can use Word afterwards to do some formatting: for instance (when you
have selected Abbreviate above), replace "^psp. " with "^p^tsp. " (w/o the
quotes) to get the spouses indented.
I know, it sounds rather cumbersome but this is currently the only way to
get birth- and death-info on the spouse of the main individual in the
report. I guess we need "Family Custom Report" for this sort of tables.
