Yup, exactly. A computer language or scripting system. NoteTab and LifeLines look like they would do it.

But it's more complication than I'm willing to deal with.

On reflection, I realized I should have initially emphasized DEprivatizing or NONprivatizing as my goal.

Since I won't know any other site or program's privatizing algorithms, I wanted to be sure my older people, like say my mother's maternal great uncle, is recognized as dead even though there's no proof and more importantly no documentation of the fact in my file.

That's in the hope of sharing data with other potential relatives. I just want to be sure that people who should show up actually can. Still wouldn't mean for sure that they would, but they could.

Oh, well. If I could get Excel to keep all the notes, sources, etc., I could do it that way. Even AutoCad added VBA for scripting several years ago. Maybe a genealogy program will too, eventually. Maybe I'll suggest that to a couple of them. I like GenBox and Family Historianl.
