To stay with the Surname Saturday theme.
How many surnames are in your family tree?
Yup, that's right, let's count those surnames.
I won't have to manually count mine because my Legacy database will do it for me. Here's how.......
First click on the "Reports" menu
|If you don't have the Reports icon on your top menu you can find it on the text menu across the top of your page|
Second - once the small window opens, click on the "Books/Other" tab and select "Surname Summary"
Next you'll see a box pop-up that is titled "Surname Summary." Click on the "preview" box.
NOTE: Be sure you have selected "screen/printer" as your report destination (at the bottom).
Once you've selected "preview," Legacy will immediately generate a report. Mine was 18 pages long. Showing every surname, how many times the surname appears in my database and the date range for the names.
HOW COOL IS THAT?
So, how many surnames do I have in my database?
Do this in your database and tell me how many you have.
