Bruce Buzbee, the “Roots Magician” himself, wrote an informative post on the RootsMagic Blog about a new report in the Roots Magic genealogy program called the “Who Was There” report.
With this feature you can specify a place and a date (or range of dates) and the report will show you everyone in your database who was at that place at that time. It is a great tool for zeroing in on people you want to locate in a particular census…like the recently released 1940 US Census.
There are many ways to fine tune the report other than what I mentioned here. Check out Bruce’s article at RootsMagic Blog » RootsMagic’s New “Who Was There” Report
