My mother is the oldest living person in my tree, at almost 98.
How do I find the oldest person at their death? She is interested in whose record she needs to beat.

If you go to Reports -> Statistics, you'll get a list that will include the ability to look for age at death.

You could also do a search for Living "No" and Age more than 98.

My brother-in-law's mother is still around at 104.5 years old. She wanted to beat her cousin's record of 102! She did it and is still going! She is physically frail but her mind is still okay...a few lapses now and then! She's a Kansas farmer's daughter with German roots. She married a farmer. Lots of good stock/genes there!

So, tell your mother ...Go! You can do it!

Regards,
Kaye

Wow, Kaye, she has good genes for sure! Congrats to her!
My mom is unfortunately, completely blind and has been bedridden for over 5 years. Her mind is still surprisingly good considering she has absolutely no life and weighs 75 lbs! Things are slipping away, although she knows those close to her. She barely remembers her great-grandkids, but her cat comes back to life once in a while... it's really sad to witness. She does look forward to turning 100, though, LOL.
Thank you for sharing!
