If I want to find a particular person in my family tree on Ancestry, I use the field in the top right-hand corner of the screen that says "Find a person in this tree". A drop-down menu then appears, matching whatever I type, that can lead me to that person. But this is searching by NAME. What do I do if I want to search in my family tree by LOCATION?
Is there a way to easily find out who came from say, Cincinnati, or the state of Ohio, without clicking on each and every profile?
UPDATE: I just wanted to give better explanation as to why I need this feature. If I am on a genealogy research trip or if I pick up a community history book, my brain can only remember so many patriarchs/matriarchs for each location. It's challenging to remember all the names of uncles, cousins and neighbours to check also in a resource. It's great when you can plan ahead and prepare a list of people to look up, but sometimes you don't have time to plan ahead, before the resource is right in front of you. Then you may do a search for everything you can remember, but when you get home you later realize that you should have also looked for so-and-so. Or, I might be doing research and my brain might tickle and try to tell me that a location is important.. but it won't necessarily remind me exactly what, or who, I was supposed to remember to look for in that location. Since I have the Ancestry phone app, I can look up the location tags I've assigned really quickly and easily now. Brilliant solution!
