How do I add a custom fact in Family Tree Builder?

If you want to add a fact to someone in your tree in Family Tree Builder, but none of the predefined types fit the information you want to add, then create your own fact type by adding a custom fact.

Adding a custom fact in Family Tree Builder is very easy.

First, find the person in the tree you want to add the fact to.

Click ‘Edit’ and then ‘Edit details’.
