Finding Names Ready for Baptism that are already in your Family Tree

Postby johncpratt1 » Mon Oct 03, 2011 5:03 am

Does anyone know a better way to search for names already in your family tree that are ready for baptism?

I created this site, but I welcome feedback, as it was harder than it should be:
temple.buildzion.com

Please feel free to update this forum with ideas. I heard of someone saying "just do a search in PAF", but I am pretty sure that won't work anymore.

Although it's possible that someone here may be able to assist you, I would suggest that you also post this information in the FamilySearch Forums at: https://www.familysearch.org/learn/forums/en/

Well, I finally figured out the answer, and here is the short version (I have updated my site):


The best free way is to use both Roots Magic Essentialsand Legacy Standard.
[INDENT] You will need to download the following:

  1. Roots Magic Essentials (or Ancestral Quest Basics)
  2. Legacy Standard edition
  3. PDF Creator (or some other program that creates a PDF file by "printing", optional)
[/INDENT]In summary, here are the steps: [INDENT]
  1. Import your 9 or 10 generation family tree from new.familysearch.org using RM or AQ
  2. Export to GEDCOM format
  3. Import into Legacy
  4. Use "Search" to create custom reports with our settings: LegacySettings.zip
  5. Print to create a PDF (or print on paper)
[/INDENT]___
I believe this is a better way to introduce young people to new.familysearch.org, rather than trying to find someone new at familysearch.org via a record search. I bet there are others who could benefit
