Only you know know which fields may include "Ireland", so I will limit myself to the obvious ones, birth place, christening place, death place, burial place, events place. You may have others, but the search principle is the same.

Go to Search>Find>Detailed Search. In the first row select Individual; Birth Place; Contains; Ireland. Then select OR and in the second row: Individual; Chr Place; Contains; Ireland. OR third row: Individual; Death Place; Contains; Ireland.

Legacy only allows 3 conditions at any one time. So, check that "Clear list before this Search" is checked and click the Create Button, and on the new screen select Options>Advanced Tagging. On the next screen select a convenient tag, say, 1, and then "Everyone in Search List", and close.

Click Search>Find, and you will return to the main search screen. Change the first row to read Individual; Tag 1; Equals; Tagged. OR second row: Individual; Burial Place; Contains; Ireland. OR third row: Individual; Event Place; Contains; Ireland. Check that "Clear list before this Search" is checked, then repeat the create and tagging routine as before, but choose, say, tag 2.

Now use the Search button to return to the main Search and search for individuals who have tag1 AND tag2 tagged.

There are other ways of doing this but I have chosen the one which I think is the most straight forward.

I want to search my database to find anyone that has Ireland in any of the fields.  Then I want to output those individuals to a summary individual report.  Seems pretty simple but darned if I can figure it out.  Any help would be appreciated.

OK. Thanks. I'll give that a try. I came up with the info from the other direction so

that was the way i started but what you say makes sense. :-)

Lew: Simply go to family  B and click add another child and select existing person then input the husband of family A as the child of the parents of family B. That shoulld work fine and bring everything over in line as he is now attached to family B.

I have a problem with linking to existing people.  Scenario:

One family (A) entire family with descendants etc (no parents).

Second family (B) complete with both up and down generations.

Find that the father of husband of A is the husband of B (ie he was not on the

list of children of B). I discover this and try to link by right-click on the box for

the father of husband A and click "existing person" from the list of names I

double click on the right person. The name shows up for the father but not the

mother and the A person does not show up in the list of children of B.

  What do I have to do to get the entire group of both families to link???

  I even tried to do the same for the mother and get some response that she is

already linked to the person "Do I want to link again?" or something to that


 Thanks for any help.

Then I am confused. There is no clipboard for reports. The report screens do have a save and load button but those save the current report option settings so you can repeat a report later using those settings. There is no clipboard. If you tried to copy part of a report to a clipboard you must have used the Windows clipboard but that is not a Legacy function and I know of no way to view the contents of the Windows clipboard except by using a third party program

Thanks Brian , the clipboard that I saved to was from a report book.

In fact there are several clipboards in Legacy, Event clipboards, Picture gallery clipboards, Source clipboards etc. and each is slightly different. In most cases you cannot "look" at the contents of the clipboard.

You can Open the Source clipboard if that is the one you mean. Look for the upward pointing triangle when you have the list of sources open.

Even though you cannot look at the contents you can still paste the contents where needed, whether to events for someone else, another picture gallery etc.

Hi, I have saved an item to my clipboard but, even after looking in the manual for help, I can't find how to look at it. It must be easy.
