A Research Log is simply a form where you can organize your research efforts.  Use it to keep track of things you want to do when you go to different places in the future.  You can track where things were found and where you want to look in the future.

Where to Send the Report
The report can be output to two formats.  Make your choice by clicking on the appropriate option button in the lower right.  The choices are:
  • Screen / Printer - Sends the report to either the Print Preview window or directly to your printer depending on whether you click the Preview or Print button.
  • PDF File - Generates the report, displays it in the Print Preview window and then creates an Adobe PDF (Portable Document File) file.  This file can be viewed with the free Adobe Acrobat Reader and easily sent to other people by e-mail.  (This feature is part of the Deluxe Edition only.)

    You can also track live research projects and task using the To-Do List.  See To-Do List for more information. 

    Note:  The report settings for the Research Log report are saved in a file called Research.usr in the [My Documents]\Legacy Family Tree\_AppData\Usr\ folder.
