I have someone who was never married: I have a marriage fact for the person, with the "Note" field set to "never married" (the marriage fact is otherwise empty).

But that doesn't come out in a (narrative) report.

 

How do I record the never-married fact in a way that would show in a report?

Personally, if someone never married, I would just put that either in the person notes or in the death description. In the latter case it comes out, "Joe Dokes died unmarried 6 December 1868." I often will put other descriptors (such as "intestate") in that field.

I think you could also create a custom fact, for a date use the “BEF” death date.

It would depend on what type of narrative report you are using. It would be better to add an individual fact to the person so its not dependent on having to list a spouse with a marriage fact.

Thanks ... I will try using an individual fact.

I guess I have to use fact type Miscellaneous or create my own custom fact.

If you are creating a Photo Timeline for someone.  Call the custom fact “Photo Timeline” and give it a date.
