How to add Place Details (ADDR) into FamilySearch?

13 January 2021 - 12:57 PM

I am using RootsMagic to synchronize my tree with FamilySearch Tree. How do you handle the information allocated under place details (tag ADDR) for birth, death, christening events?

I have standardize all my locations adding any particular information like, cemeteries , churches, streets, and so on under place details.

How to add this information into FamilySearch Tree. I see a lot of information fields are still missing at FS.

Is there anyway I have RM to concatenate PLACE DETAILS + PLACE during the sync in order not to loose information?

How to add Apposition with Commas in Name?

13 January 2021 - 06:28 AM



I am trying to add apposition with commas to the name of some of my ancestors.


Unlike English, that we can use apposition without commas like in "Alexander the great", in Portuguese, we must use a comma. eg. "Alexandre, o Grande"
How can I add this using RM? I tried using it as a suffix. But if I set it to ", o Grande", it adds an extra weird space resulting in "Alexandre , o Grande".
I could add a comma to the end of the name "Alexandre,", but it is definitely not a good approach, just an workaround... 

Any idea how GEDCOM has imagine this issue?




How to automatically add Death Facts to old people?

19 January 2020 - 08:53 PM

Hi,  I need some help...


Is there any easy way to automatically add "empty" Death Facts to people older than an age?


I have more than 12 thousands names in my tree and many of them do not have a death fact, even though there are certainty dead, since they were born in very ancient dates or marriage in other centuries, or even were for sure dead. How to fix that?


I could make a customized search for empty death facts, but I have to manually add facts thousand times...
