I am interested in searching for all WikiTree person either born, married or died at a given town?  Is there a way to do this?

Thank you

Top Right of your Page , Hover your mouse pointer over: Find. Click People: Search. Or maybe this is what you are looking for:http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Kitty%27s_Library

Hi T,

On the top-right of any WikiTree page including G2G pages, you should see 4 choices of drop-down boxes... the 3rd of which is "Find".  After clicking that, you can scroll down the list to whatever you are looking for including people, projects, and more.  When searching for people, there is an option on the bottom of the page to use Google to search within WikiTree pages.  This can be a useful tool in searching for all the "Mary Smith"s that lived in "Vermont".  You can also include dates or other details; any words.  Regular search terms like quotation marks and + symbols function normally.

I hope this helps.  If not, direct me and I'll try again :)

Find: People Search at http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:SearchPerson

At the bottom of the page is search for any text with Google.

It does the same thing as the previous answer and which you use depends on which format you prefer the answers in.
