You have a lot of notes. I probably average one many be two sentences per note. Things like "the date could be 5/1/1795 or 6/1/1795" or "the location is spelled Nöstdal here, not Naustdal"
But as I said before it is your database and you can use the fields however you want. I'm just pointing out to people who search this forum in the future that the fields do have a specific use and if they choose to follow the use as spelled out in the data dictionary as opposed to doing it in a vacuum here it is.
I realize that most people don't search these forums, since I know I've weighed in on this topic before, and people generally don't care about the data dictionary definition of a field. So I will stop answering.
