Re: creating a file for Ancestry with no facts for living individuals

A good text editor, which I use for all sorts of applications including GEDCOM and LUA files is PSPad.

Re: Named lists window?

And a Named List can contain Family and Source records, as well as Individual records; Flags can only be on Individual records.

Re: Showing ancestor ages in Focus Window

If you know a person has died, you can (and perhaps should?) add a Death event, without any details such as Date, Place, Source if those details are unknown. Then FH won't calculate an Age as if the person is still alive.
