I had a birth fact. I made it disputed, so now a line is through it. I now have the correct birth fact listed, but since the disputed fact is Jan and the new fact is April the disputed fact is showing on the person screen. I wanted to keep the disputed fact. Is there a way to show the correct birth fact?

I use only one Birth fact and enter the most likely data and discuss any conflicting dates, places, etc. in the note.  I link all the sources snd enter transcriptions from each source in the Detail text, Research note box and enter any comments needed.

 

You can mark the Birth fact you want to show on the main screen and print in some reports as Primary.

 

But, the People view and some reports shows the first fact entered not the one marked Primary.

Thanks Laura, it took me forever to spot the primary box, but it worked!
