2008/2/8, sgtbob <rrunion@cox.net>:

I've tried several variations on reports and added some data as events, but
the sourcing does not show up in the reports. Practically all of them have
an end note 1 that  reads '1.  Import from Runion.GED' from the  GECOM
import.  Most all of the individual sources for census data, birth records,
marriage records, burial, etc., do not appear in any of the reports.  Some
of the data is included as sources, but I am at a loss as to how to figure
why these appear and not others. Indeed my own marriage data from FTM is not
imported as an event but shows up as an entry at the end of the text data
that starts with  '...More about Brown, S, and Smith, Robert:  Marriage: 4
October 1958, Town, ST  . Marriage of R  and Brown, S.,...', but the source
I had from FTM is no where to be found.

I do not see any place in the preferences to check of source import - the
only box that appears to address this issue is 'Add default source on
import' - the default must be the '1.  Import from Runion.GED' noted above.

Indeed

There must be something I'm not doing right since importation of data
without cross-referencing individuals to the source of that entry (be they
events or miscellaneous data) is a loss of information that would show where
I got the data.

I'm stumped!!! :confused: :,( :-((

Ok, first, is the source data visible in the source view ? That is the icon with a book in the sidebar. If you open a source, do you see in the last tab, reference tab, the correct people/events as mentioned by the source linked?

If the above is not the case, the GEDCOM as exported by FTM is not well organized and is the cause of the problems.

If the above is present, it is the report that does not include information as you would want to see it. In that case you can help developers by making a design of how ideally a good eg ancestor report should look like.
Obviously many people have different ideas, and we have to create reports that are usable by an as large group as possible.
