Is there a way I can query the WikiTree database?

Is there a way I can query the WikiTree database, for example, to see all the profiles that list a specific place of birth, for people who are not on my Watchlist?  In the past I've used the Gedcom download feature for my own profiles, or the WikiTree+ customizable search for Error Suggestions, but I want to see profiles outside my Watchlist that may not have pending suggestions.  Thanks for your help!

PS I realize that if I use the Search option - text, it will return the pages that match the criteria I put in, it works wonderfully well, but obliges me to go into each and every person which is not practical for a big list.  I'm looking for a report format option, like with the suggestion lists  ...

I added a few more tags - there are queries that can be run against the DB, but I'm not sure if they can do everything you're asking for.

On WikiTree+, you can also search for profiles, not only the suggestions.

It is in Search group. Here you can see all profiles associated with Denver

And here is the help of what you can search for.

I love the text search, Aleš.

I loved it even more when I started using the options for sorting and page size.

Aleš, thank you so very much for the instructions!  I feel like a fool, because I've played around with the Wikitree+ feature I don't know how many times and have never came up with the combination ..... just goes to show you, it is better to ask!  I think you just changed my life on WikiTree .....
