> * How would you identify all persons in your database who lived in a
> specific place and who are not related to a target individual? This
> query would involve querying on multiple events (Birth, Residence,
> Census, etc.) to meet the first condition and a negative test to meet
> the second.
> * How would you identify all persons who were witnesses at baptisms in
> a specific country? How would you then create a report sorting the
> results by name of baptized child and by date? Could you create a report
> showing the frequency with which each baptismal witness associated (as a
> witness to a baptism event) with each other baptismal witness?
> * How would you identify each occurance of a place name or a textual
> reference to a specific source or person within ANY research note?
