Julian / Gregorian dates question

22 September 2018 - 11:17 AM

To date, I have found the method of entering dates for Quaker records before 1751 satisfactory.


For other pre 1751 records, Julian dates are not formatted the same way as those for Quaker records.  Quakers did not recognize Julian names for months, while non Quakers did.  In order to properly reflect Julian dates for non Quakers, I would like to place a (J) after the date and still use Day Month Year.  By changing the sort date, I can put the event in proper order.  


Will this cause any problems?


Better ideas will be welcomed.



simplifying source data entry

Has RootsMagic considered the possibility of working with the developers of an online citation manager (Bibme, Zotero, Citation Machine, etc.) to automate the generation of citations?  I'm willing to bet that most RootsMagic users get most of their information over the Internet, in which case, the data for generating citations is readily available for formatting.  I would certainly be willing to pay extra for this time and mental anguish saving capability.
