Finally getting caught up on some “old” Saturday Night Genealogy Fun Posts! Thank you Genea-Musings for the great ideas!! My answers are in RED below!
My tree has 20,078 people.
1) Are there persons in your genealogy database that has the same exact birth date that you do? If so, tell us about him or her – what do you know, and how is s/he related to you? No one has my exact birth date (Nov. 11, 19xx)
2) Are there persons in your database that are your ancestors that share your birth day (but not the year)? How many, and who are they? I have one direct ancestor with the same birth date – my great-great-grandfather Adam Alexander Fetherkile. He was born Nov. 11, 1852 and died Dec. 22, 1937.
3) Are there other persons in your database that share your birth day (but not the year)? How many, and who are they? Including myself and Grandpa, there are 37 people with the birth date Nov. 11. 26 are relatives by blood and 10 are “unrelated”. For the sake of privacy, names of the living are not included.
4) For bonus points, how did you determine this? What feature or process did you use in your software to work this problem out? I think the Calendar feature probably does it, but perhaps you have a trick to make this work outside of the Calendar function. I use Family Tree Maker 2014.1
Here are the steps: open tree; click Publish; click Person Reports; click List of Individuals Report; click Create Report; when the next screen shows up, click sort by month/date (which automatically defaults to birthdate) and be sure that “all individuals”; click generate report again; scroll to the desired date.
