I would like to be able to sort my list of Private people by date of creation. Presently, one can only sort by name. It would be nice to be able to check the earlier creations who may no longer be living.
I wish many things in FamilySearch were searchable by create date.
For example - doing a search in FamilyTree - I wish I could filter by records recently created.0
I agree, and add that any tool (or change) that will make managing our Private People would be very welcomed.
After adding new people, both Living and Deceased, for years - I too have struggled to effectively review and update my sizable list that is marked as "Private People."
Currently, I scrape the "basic data," which only includes the name, ID, birth year (if available), and record creation date. I can only do this; however, after laboriously scrolling to the "endless" bottom of the list - since the site only loads a handful of names at a time.
I then work through the list in Excel, sorting oldest to newest or youngest to oldest; which is highly inefficient (and only works if the birth year has been added).
Ideas to improve this include: the option to load all records at once; adding the capability to export the list; working with (or encouraging) a software partner (developer) to create a tool; adding filters or sorting capabilities; or really anything else would be helpful.0
Don't all these wishes apply equally to our Following lists?0
YES PLEASE add filters/sort to the Private People list. Please add a
1) sort function for date of birth or a filter for "Born over 110 years ago"
2) Filter for "No birthdate"
3) Sort by surname0
