    I needed to produce an Individual Report on someone for a visitor. They pointed out that the report had details of father, mother, siblings, wives, and offspring … but no MARRIAGE details. Is this as intended?

    “as intended” is not strictly accurate. “As it always has been (in the old report version)” would be correct though, and I did not attempt to change it.

    It might be possible to include it somewhere, but where would be best? It could only be part of the section headed “Family with ….” as all the rest is taken from INDI data. Your asking for something from the cross-referenced FAM data.

    Would the still-old Reports> Family be a more useful solution for your visitor? I hope to convert that one for the next release.

    Yes, But, No, But … I am asking for a report on an individual and … like … when and where he/she got married is kind of important!

    I would suggest

    Family with spouse
    Spouse xxxxxxxxxxxx
    Married xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    daughter xxxx
    son xxxx
    etc xxxx

    I felt embarrassed because the visitor was a professional genealogist from USA seeking information for one of his clients.

    The old family report did not do it all because it did not give details of (in this case) the other spouses.

    Family with spouse
    Spouse xxxxxxxxxxxx
    Married xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    daughter xxxx
    son xxxx
    etc xxxx

    Thats where I was thinking. But looking at it I can reasonably easily do that plus a little more.

    I’m please to be getting feedback about these rewritten reports. Generally I’ve only replicated what the old versions did, but if they are going to be used now, then I’m more than happy to improve them.

    So in this case the Individual report will in the next release:

    • Include the major family events under the section “Facts and events” for that individual (marriage, divorce, family residence, family census entries etc)
    • Include marriage dates / places for parents
    • Repeat the individual’s marriage details in their “Family with spouse” section.

    Attached is a zip folder with two files in it in case you want to have this improvement right now.
    functions_resource.php should be copied to kiwitrees/includes/functions/
    module.php should be copied to kiwitrees/modules_v3/resource_individual/

    I so very rarely use these reports as I am so used to just doing things online. I was stunned when this was pointed out to me yesterday so much so I had to look twice to see that it was true!
