I've done something a little different. I've customized the "Add Person" window to include the fields "Chr", "Burial" & "Living". I find this very handy as I often enter people from these facts, rather than birth or death. If I enter someone who has a Chr or Burial date (but no birth or death dates) I am offered matches with people of the same name but wildly different dates. Should Chr & Burial be considered when making the search for possible duplicates?

Also, I'd like to suggest that the Index pane show the Christen date when there is one but no birth date.

The info pane should be changing the b. to a ch. if you only have a Christen date. If your not seeing it then maybe you need to rebuild your indexes under the File>Database Tools.

On the possible duplicates I would need the details on both individuals so I can recreate this. My limited testing isn't giving possible duplicates with wildly different dates.
