Chris, thanks I will try out your suggestion. I could still envision some level of icons or display as I walk my tree to know the status of individuals. Today I have to switch between the family view and the data view so for at least some key fields it would be nice to setup these filters so I can tell if I need to do more research on an individual. Would have come in handy as I added the 1940 census sources over the past year. The S/W I work on has this type of display concept although for a completely different market.
