It has been awhile but I have been busy searching records, organizing them and attaching them in Family Tree Maker.  I had a question about linking media (images) files to particular events and sent an inquiry to FTM.  I received a response very quickly that clarified how this was done.  It was a "duh" moment when I realized how easy it was.  But it did lead to another question.  If I have a document affixed to an event, i.e. birth, is there a way for FTM to indicate this on the data page for the person? Something like a check mark or document indicator beside the event.  Then can there be a report that makes a list of all people in the database giving name, place, date of birth, date of confirmation, date of marriage, and date of death?  If the data has a document attached it would be indicated (bolded, underlined, starred).  This report could then be used to search for the missing information document.  Just a thought.
