How can I show the date as approximate only? I've tried using abt & c . Is there another way?

One way round this is to use Ron's gnoutils program and convert dates in the baptism record to a Custom Tag. This can then be displayed on the genogram, although I think it does not yet carry through to the Report Generator.

Baptism year is not always the same as birth year and so this utility allows you to display a date prefixed with C. - which is what you want. I have changed my copy of the utility to show a date as '<1755', on the assumption that birth happens before baptism

I am currently writing the date & time routines for Beta 16.  I have reserved some bits (memory) to support date approximation and date ranges.

Will your new date & time routings support other calanders?

The design allows support for multiple calendars.  Eventually will be able to pick which calendar to display the date(s).

Great. I just met yesterday someone that the Hebrew calandar is very important for him in his tree, and I could not tell him if it will be available.

Thanks.

Can this also support the genealogical convention used for the Julian calendar, ie 1750/51 for dates in the first quarter of 1751, which were recorded as being in 1750?

The design allows unlimited number of display formats.  It is like displaying the number 2006.  This number can be displayed in decimal (2006), hexadecimal (7D6), binary (11111010110) or whatever else.  The formatting options will be available, and new calendars could be added in the future.  I don't know the specifics of each calendar, however I know the date "5 March 2006" has an equivalent for every calendar.  Transforming a date to a different calendar is done by performing some arithmetic such as additions, subtractions, multiplications to the days, months and years.

The problem is to display a date from two calendars - the Julian and Gregorian. This is widely used in genealogical work and several of the genealogical programs can display this format ie 1750/51. All UK related data before 1755 has this problem for the first quarter ie before 25 March. In other countries the change took place at different times. Other calendars may have similar problems.

It may be necessary to transfer this to a text string in a Custom Tag - at least to start with
