Re: Record Flags
Johntoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I created a Custom Attribute which I called "Certs" and I use letters to denote if I have any of the GRO BMD certs (using letters 'B','M','D') and other key Church events (using 'C' for Christening, 'P' for Parish Marriage entry and 'X' for Burial record). I only use 6 letters but there's no reason it could not be used to easily denote other events.
I found the advantage of doing it this way was that it only took up a single line in diagrams and had the flexibility to record duplicated events (3x'P' where someone married 3 times etc). Also, it's a single Gedcom Fact instead of possibly a large number where each "thing" has it's own Gedcom Fact so therefore lessens the file size.
I'm sure a Plugin could be written to automatically generate the values when starting from scratch with a large file.
