My understanding of the GEDCOM spec is that conflicting information is dealt with by entering multiple tags. In this case I would have two PLAC tags
Code: Select all
2 DATE 1887
2 SOUR @S29@
2 PLAC Barbeski, Asia Minor, Turkey
3 SOUR @S51@
2 PLAC Xanthi, Greece
3 SOUR @S15@
2 _TODO Order these records and view this source
2 _TODO cite birth evidence
If he had conflicting birth dates I'd add two BIRT events.
I can't add a second PLAC or a second BIRT event in GEDCOM mode via right-click Add Property > or Add Property...
I had to edit the file in a text editor. Once I edited it GenJ seems to cope okay - not sure what reports will break.
Am I misunderstanding the spec here? If not I understand adding a second BIRT record is counter-intuitive but maybe the dialogue box Add Property... should allow multiple tags to be added with a warning.
