Tuesday’s Tip – New feature! (Beginner)

Tuesday's Tips provide brief how-to's to help you learn to use the Legacy Family Tree software with new tricks and techniques.

New feature! (Beginner)

The developers have slipped in a new feature. The Relationship Report now has a filter so that you can tell Legacy you only want to see your BLOOD relatives. Before you get started, you will need to set your relationships. Go to TOOLS > SET RELATIONSHIPS. Normally you will set the relationships to yourself.

Once you have set the relationships the report will become active. Go to REPORTS > OTHER REPORTS > RELATIONSHIP REPORT. You will see a new checkbox for "Only include blood-relatives."

And now my report only shows the people that I am blood related to.

So glad that the report was created by surname and by first name. A great addition to my DNA searches.
