Thank you to Terry, Dave and Bob,
Sounds like the journal report with tweaking is the way to go.
Terry, I especially appreciated your article - very helpful.

I use a Journal report, ancestor and/or descendant version depending
who I want to get included. I use Selected tags on the Tags tab, and
include those tag types I want to include, and include sources. I send
it to MS Word so I can review it before sending, sometimes editing out
stuff I don't want to include, and also do a little editing of the
format. Then I attached a copy to an e-mail, or convert it to a PDF
and send that. Or, for those who don't "do" e-mail, print it and send
a hard copy.
Some other considerations are discussed in my article on Sharing, at
