How it Works

This LTool goes thru your Legacy database looking at an individual's birth year (or baptism year if birth year not populated) and death year (or burial year if death year not populated). It uses the *SD (sorted) date columns in the database. If both birth and death years are present, this LTool looks to see if the Target Year falls between them (or is equal to either). If only the birth year is present, the program looks to see if it is greater than the Target Year minus Max Lifespan. If only the death year is present, the program looks to see if it is less than the Target Year plus Max Lifespan. If an individual meets any of these conditions, he/she will get tagged.

In addition, this LTool will use the Use this age for Head of Household setting to narrow down the set of individuals who get tagged. For example, if the Use this age for Head of Household control is set to '21', then the individual must be 21 years old or older in the Target Year to be tagged.
