Re: GEDCOM 5.5.1 Standard Release Nov 2019

I wonder if Tamura Jones has spooked them? (See https://www.tamurajones.net/GEDCOM551AnnotatedEdition.xhtml for his annotated version of 5.5.1 and https://www.tamurajones.net/GEDCOM555JustARevision.xhtml for what he calls 5.5.5 - his cleaned up version of 5.5.1) Further comments from me about FS and...

There are no rules about what you put in - but there are consequences! Because it happened, and I tend to record many, many, many things, I'd enter it.

Re: 1859 Irish Will 'Mark and Seal'

Interesting! For obvious reasons (i.e. the 1922 Fire) I don't have many Irish wills. The one (1867) will that I downloaded (which survived because it was proven at Limerick, so this is the Limerick copy) has "Wm Jackson (seal)" at the bottom where the signature would be. The word "seal" is actually ...
