How to Enter a Cremation


On the Details/Main tab of the Property Box Dialogue Burials are shown, but Cremations are not.

To enter a Cremation and lots of other types of Event, you need to use the Events/Facts tab of the Property Box Dialogue. In fact, as you progress in Family Historian, you will increasingly use the Events/Facts tab rather than the Details/Main tab for Event and Attribute information, as it allows many additional fields to be entered, and in the case of Attributes like Occupation allows multiple occurrences to be entered.

Click on the Add Event/Attribute/Fact button at the left-hand end of the lower toolbar, and you will find Cremation in the standard Event/Attribute List. Click the Add button and complete the Date, Place, and other fields at the bottom of the Events/Facts tab.
