I use GRAMPS since many years but after some GEDCOM imports generated by other programs, there was no scheme for storing my data.

I had locations on person's address tab, on family, some events were missing, etc ...

True, I was able to get one list by using multiple filter rules and Export the screen function but I needed to know who and where on my database. That's why I generated a textual report using the power of filter and report framework.

Generated with :

Coding way is not very quick or standard but is easy to understand and plugin does the job.

  • It has been generated under Geany
  • and checked with pylint.

I used it for cleaning my database.

Feel free to improve it for your own need !

Limitations

  • As this is a textual report, there is no changes on database.

It just retrieves information from database. Do not need to make a backup before using this report.

  • As code is not very complex, it should not introduce mistakes on output.

If there is an error, then there is a valid mail at the end of the plugin.
