@Silverfox,

So what you are saying is that FTM has the ability to indicate "Dead" as part of the date field. Is this correct?

AND you use words like "Child", "Infant", "Stillborn" in the date field to indicate that the individual died as a child? Is it a drop down list?

You do this as opposed to indicating (as per the GEDCOM standard) dead with a "Y" in the description and a NOTE of "Child", "Infant", "Stillborn".

I get the idea of putting "AFT 1900", "ABT 1901", "BEF 1902", "CAL 1900" in the date field, which is "in line" with the standard. I do this all the time.

I'm only asking specifically so that I don't ask for enhancements to FTM (or future addons) to correctly support GEDCOM that causes other issues to users.
