Death Year Mismatch #date #death

Lists individuals whose Death Year is missing from RootsMagic Explorer (and other views and reports where just the YEAR is outputted) or mismatches the value that has been stored in the Date field of the Death fact. Adapted from the query Birth Year Mismatch.

New: see Rebuild Indexes and Update Birth and Death Years for a batch procedure to match up the Birth and Death years with their facts.
