How to create a "On this Day in History" report?

Posted: 13 Feb 2009 1:25PM GMT
Classification: Query
My family has a number of coincidences, where one relative has passed away on another relative's birthday, for instance (in my family, September 4th is a popular day for events - I'd like to find other 'popular' days without having to memorize my database). Is there a report that will reveal multiple events for the same day, irrespective of year?

Basically, what I want is like what you see in the newspaper of "What happened on this Day in history?" Is there a canned report in RootsMagic that will reveal these coincidences? Or could one be created to do this?

I am new to genealogy software and have only recently installed RootsMagic 3. I asked their Tech Support this question, but I was told to simply look through the reports. Not knowing the software very well is the very reason that I contacted Tech Support to begin with.

Thank you.
