Sunday Afternoon Genealogy Fun – Your Genealogy Database Statistics

Each week on Randy Seaver’s Genea-musings blog he has a post for Saturday night Genealogy fun.  Because of the time difference, I have called my series Sunday Afternoon Genealogy Fun.

This week, the mission was:

1)  If you have your family tree research in a Genealogy Management Program (GMP), whether a computer software program or an online family tree, figure out how to find how many persons, places, sources, etc. are in your database (hint:  the Help button is your friend!)

2)  Tell us which GMP you use, and how many persons, places, sources, etc. are in your database(s) today in a blog post of your own, in a comment to this blog post, or in a Facebook status or Google+ stream comment.

I use Legacy Family Tree as my GMP (Genealogy Management Program).  I actually have two trees – I have a more complete tree that I started back in about 1996-1997.  Since there was quite a lot of information I didn’t want to have online in this tree, I set up a new tree around 2006 that I use to share online.

To find the statistics in Legacy, I chose File from the top menu, and then File Properties.
