Baptism and burial date
Ronald Frietman
- Close

In the Netherlands, we make a lot of use of baptism instead of birth and burial instead of death (before 1811 from most people only the baptism date and burial date are known, birth date and date of death weren't commonly written down). This makes it difficult to use this software, because it takes a lot of time entering all the baptisms and burial dates. Maybe it is possible to integrate it in the person card and main page of each person? It would improve the software very much or Dutch users.

In the UK, civil registration of birth and death only occurred after 1837.  Therefore, pre-1837 it is usual for only the baptism/christening and burial dates to have been recorded.

 In the family tree pedigree layout, both Modern and Classic only show a person's dates of birth and death (ie John Smith 1800-1851).  Details such as his christening/burial dates can only be seen in the sidebar.  So if you only have John's christening/burial dates, his card in the pedigree layout will just say 'John Smith', no dates at all.

I would  very much like to be able to see baptism/christening/burial dates included in the pedigree layout.  So I could see something like 'John Smith, 1801-1852').

I too would  very much like to be able to see baptism/christening/burial dates included in the pedigree layout as I'm sure a lot of people would.

 

When is this likely to be added to the software?

 

Looks like people have been waiting for some time now.
