<< I want a report that contains this output for everyone who has a
ID# Name (in any order) Detail/City from 1851 census
tag Birth Date
I have tried modifying the List of People, List of Places, List of Events,
Custom Report Writer options. List of People won't give me the location
details I need. List of Places won't give me the personal identification

parameters. Why can't I generate the output I need?
Do a LIST OF PEOPLE with the filter
Any tag 1851census Tag Exists.
Have the secondary output sent to a flag. I keep one I call RESEARCH for
just this purpose.
Now make a list of persons with the filter
Any tag Birth State = TN (Or whatever state you want) AND
Research flag = (WHATEVER YOU SET IT TO ABOVE) END
That will now give you all the people born in a certain state that also have

whatever destination. I usually use state, since the US census was done by
You can have the report give you Name, ID number, Birth date, Death date,
