Well, it depends. If you only want the persons, their ID#s, and some
other data, the the List of People report is the best one. The List of
Events report is likely to be fairly long since it will list each person
and each Tag citing that place.

Rather tha use the Equals Operator selection, try the Contains. Then you
don't need to enter the full spelling of an entry. This is particularly
helpful if you are looking for data having similar spellings. For example
if you have states spelled out and want to filter for both North and South
Carolina, you would look for Carol as the "contains" target.

Hope this helps -
