Thanks for responding so quickly!
I think I got the right folks in the report, finally. I had to remove ALL
people from the list a couple of times, and then list by that criteria
again. I guess it wouldn't clear them at first.
My living ancestors born before 1941 don't show up, either. The main 2
people, I think: my dad (82 years old) and my grandmother (95 years old).
There's probably more folks that fit in that category, but they're pretty
distant, so I'll just have to go fishin', I guess... :)
