Rob I applied your tmg advice to ftm. Went to reports, surname

Totally intuitive, it took three mouse clicks total

No probs

Thanks for your reply rob

I meant to type ftm not ftm above.

Although I've used the master genealogist for ten years
I've been using family tree maker 2012 exclusively for the last year.

I just had to click "ignore" through several dozen error messages while it was importing my gedcom (mostly "end of file" messages which could not be found with google)

It's frozen as I write.

since no one has asked before here (from the forum search engine-

Is there a way to do the above with ftm?
I would be happy with just direct surnames at this point

Ok after 30 min it imported the gedcom
I went to reports-list of people
Selected a subject
Clicked the radio button for filtered group
Typed "is an ancestor of"

Save filter as ancestor surname
First drops own field - sortsurname

Then I lost it
I couldn't follow your directions further

I don't understand filters
THat and he constant crashes are why I went back to ftm after ten years

Thanks though
Can you please clarify the steps or jus point me towards another program

Is there freeware or trial ware that will do this?
