Webtrees Reports Menu is a drop-down menu offering links to fifteen different reports about your Webtrees Family Tree. Some may not have been activated by the site administrator or may have restricted access to them depending on whether you are logged in, or a manager or administrator.

When a drop-down menu asks for a location, it is sometimes useful to start by selecting a country or county, and then afterwards drill down to smaller locations such as towns or villages.
