Subject: Re: [GENBOX] Outline Descendant Report: duplicate data +
Date: Thu, 2 Sep 2004 23:06:10 +0100
I've just done a quick check and I have individuals with no birth event
or a birth event with no data and I'm not seeing the duplication of the
individual's name in Outline Descendant Reports. If I have children with a
birth event with no data, I am seeing the duplication. Odd I've never
noticed this before, perhaps someone else knows why this is happening?
