Source citations

How does one assign a source citations to a specific EVENT (like a birth or marriage), not a person's name?

For example, if I have an LDS film number / record number of a person's birth, how do I fill out the SCOURCE and Source citation forms such that when i export a MyHeritage gedcom, the appropriate field get filled out.

Several genealogy software packages allow for source citations per event, even multiple citations for the SAME event.

I think even FTB has this feature. But when I import the gedcom into FTB, I only get the citation attached to the name, NOT THE EVENT (like a birth).

Dear Dieter,

Thank you for writing in our forum.

To assign one source (or more) to a specific event, please follow these steps: 1. Locate the person's card on the tree 2. Click "Edit" > "Edit Details: ..." 3. Go to the tab "Facts" 4. Select the fact (event) to which you want to add the source 5. Click: "Fact Citations" 6. Select the source citation in the dropdown menu (or create a new one) 7. If there are additional citations, click on the button: "Add Additional citations" 8. Click "Ok"

I hope this is useful. Please feel free to contact us directly to: support@myheritage.com for further comments or questions.

Best Regards,

Ilana

My question not how to do this in FTB, but rather on the MyHeritage website.

Let me know if I can add a Source Citation to a FACT?
