Creating and Using Focus Lists

  1. A focus list can be created using the Advanced Focus/Filter option in the Search menu on the toolbar.
  2. Use the Relationship Filter and the Field Filter to filter individuals. Only the individuals who meet the requirements set in these two filters will appear on the final list.
  3. You can use the Relationship and Field Filters individually or together to create a list. For instance, you can search for individuals in a certain family who were born in a certain location (use And to combine the filters). Or, you can search for individuals in a certain family who were not born in a certain location (use Not to combine the filters).
  4. See the unit on Filters to learn how to use the Relationship and Field Filters.
