From Help file, enter search term "keywords"

Certain keywords can be used in the Date field to help define the date. For example, you may be uncertain about the birth date of a person but know it falls somewhere in the year "1900". In the Date field you can express that by typing "Bet. 1900-1901".

The following table describes the keywords you can use and how Family Tree Maker expresses them:
