For this work, I used RootsMagic 5 and added all of the alternate names and alternate birth assertions that I have found in my research for Devier James Lamphier Smith (1839-1894), one of my second great-grandfathers. I was curious to see how this information would be shown by RootsMagic 5 and listed in a number of reports.
As you can see, only one Birth assertion, one Marriage assertion, and one Death assertion is entered for Devier and his wife, Abigail (Vaux) Smith (1844-1931).
2) Double clicking on Devier's name opens the Edit Person for him. The list of Facts (assertions) is in date order, and Alternate Names are listed at the bottom.
For each Fact (assertion) listed, I have one or more source citations based on the research I have performed for Devier. I have added several source comments and Fact notes, in addition to having a long Person Notes section.
3) Here is the first page of the Family Group Sheet created by RootsMagic 5 for Devier J. Smith:
For the Family Group Sheet, the user seems to have no control over which Facts (assertions) are printed out. As you can see, source citation numbers are assigned for the Facts, and I chose to add them as Endnotes at the end of the report. The Family Group Sheet includes information for the children, and the Person notes for Devier and his wife.
4) An Individual Summary for Devier J. Smith is similar in content to the Family Group Sheet, except for the list of children is minimized. The Person Notes for Devier and the source citations for the Facts (assertions) are included.
5) A Narrative Report for the Ancestors of Devier J. Smith contains similar information, but in a narrative format, as shown below:
