Re: How to deal with an engagement when the couple never marry

Just be aware that Fact Witnesses are a non-standard GEDCOM feature and not supported by many other products.

Alternatively, Associated Person although a standard GEDCOM feature, is still not well supported by other products.

Using the Family relationship and Engagement Event are standard GEDCOM features and universally supported.

So if exporting to other products such as Ancestry, FindMyPast, TNG, etc, then bear those options in mind.

Thank you, using the witness field to link two people seems like a good work around to connect two people who aren't a couple. It could be used for a number of things.
