Do other RM users document that a spouse died as a custom fact that allows a specific sentence? 


In TMG, I made the widow a witness to the death fact of his/her spouse. This made it clear when one marriage ended before the next marriage, and grouped the children within each marriage nicely in the main view. RM will transfer these death fact with witness but I will have to reformulate the witness sentence. Since my TMG method is not Gedcom compliant and I don't use widow except as needed for clarification, it is probably a good time to look at a new practice. It does require duplicating the citations, etc. 


I am considering a new Widow fact (TMG tag other event named widow). Or is there a better way?


My ultimate report out is GedSite.


Any thoughts?
