Dave,

If you have a source which is unconfirmed you can view people with that source by creating a filter.  To create a filter to view people with an "Ancestry.com" source, do the following:

In the People view:

>From the menu select: Edit -> Person Filter Editor
Click "+" to add a new filter
Enter a name such as "People with Ancestry source"
Click "+" to add a new rule
Under "General filters" select "People with the <source>"
Select the Ancestry source from the drop-down list

To use the filter you need to use the filter sidebar.

>From the menu select: View -> Filter Sidebar
Select your filter from the "Custom filter" drop-down and click "Find"

You may also want to look at events that have this source.  If this is the case you will need two steps:  first define a source filter for the Ancestry source and than an event filter which uses the source filter.

In the Source View:

>From the menu select: Edit -> Source Filter Editor
Click "+" to add a new filter
Enter a name such as "Ancestry"
Click "+" to add a new rule
Choose filter "Source with <Id>"
Click select button and choose the Ancestry source

Next, in the Event View:

>From the menu select: Edit -> Event Filter Editor
Click "+" to add a new filter
Enter a name such as "Ancestry source"
Click "+" to add a new rule
Choose filter "Event with source matching the <source filter>"
Select the source filter you have just defined from the drop-down list

Another useful thing to do is to define a filter which returns objects with no sources.  If you create a source filter for "Every Source" then you can create an event filter which matches this, but if you also check the "Return values that do not match the filter rules" box which will filter events with no sources.

You could also build a source filter for "Unconfirmed sources" which has more than one rule to match multiple sources that you consider unconfirmed.

Using the marker on a person is also a good suggestion.

I hope this helps.

Regards,

Nick.

Hi, Espen.

I don't have the slightest idea how to do what you are suggesting.

Thank you!

Hi Dave,
a possible solution here could be to create a source filter where you
e.g. get the confirmed sources as output from the filter.  Use that
source filter in the creation of a person or event filter.  Please
reply if this answer was more confusing than clarifying...


Cheers

Is there a way to flag people with unconfirmed sources when entering them so
that they are easy later? I entered several people over a few days time that
I found on a tree posted on Ancestry.com that I need to confirm. In between
those, I also entered some that I did confirm. The only way I can see to
find there is going through people looking to see if Sources have been
entered.
