The Place List now is almost done. I’ve got the link back to the person working correctly with the proper linking text. There is a small amount left to do to finish it off. Little bits of careful formatting are required to make it look as good as possible, including some tricks like non-breaking spaces and hyphens.

I wondered what the order should be for showing the information. I originally thought it could be a user option to allow event/name order or name/event order or maybe even add the event date and allow date order as part of the equation.

But then I thought of how this Place List would be used. You want it to show you all the people for an event at that place. The order within each event should be the order that they occur in the Everything Report. That way, you would be able to scan top to bottom through the Everything Report and find all the people born at a certain place, married at that place, buried at that place, etc.

Similarly the Sources will work exactly the same way, so you can scan top to bottom for all your references to each Source.
