Hi,

When I import a gedcom file, bmd dates that are recorded in my genealogy program as Q2 1895 is displayed as BET APR 1895 AND JUN 1895, but is then reported as invalid date on the problem spotter, so therefore no age is shown. If I change this to Q2 1895, genopro changes this to 02/1895 which is incorrect as this is February 1895.

How do I overcome this problem? am I missing something?

Thanks

Lincsman.

Unfortunately the present version of GenoPro does not process date ranges and simply retains them as text.

About the best you can do in this case is to use the GedCom ABT (or about) suffix. GenoPro will process this as an approximate date so 'ABT MAY 1895' becomes '~05/1895' and an age is calculated. Perhaps leave 'DOB Q2 1895' in the comment.

Hi,

Not really what I wanted to hear, but better than nothing. Maybe it would be better if, on import, it interpreted Q3 as Abt Sep etc. I now have to manually change every entry, though I appreciate it can be done in a text editor.

I love Genopro, that is the only problem I have found.

Cheers,

Lincsman
