Would someone tell me if this works or not......I have several obituaries on my desktop and would like to put them into the databaseof RootsMagic. I got the obits from the newspapers.
Thanks for any help.

You can enter the text of the obit in the death fact for the individual and enter the Newpaper with date as a source for the obit.

What I did is set up a seperate fact called Obituary. In the fact I can type the date of Obit and the name of paper. Then I add the obit as a not. This lets me have the obit print in a narritive report. I can then see quickly if I have a obit for someone too.
