Export Gedcom File plugin new features

Post by tatewise » 12 Sep 2021 12:07

The Updating existing FH records with data from CSV (19765) thread discusses new Export Gedcom File features:
  1. Synthesise missing Birth events from 1st fact with Normal Time Frame = Soon After Birth and with a Date.
    e.g. Baptism or Christening events or any custom Soon After Birth facts.
  2. Synthesise missing Death events from 1st fact with Normal Time Frame = Post-Death and with a Date.
    e.g. Burial, Cremation or Probate events or any custom Post-Death facts.
  3. Allow all the plugin settings to be saved in the global Program Data or local to the Project.
    A new administration tab will offer that choice and the ability to copy global settings to/from local settings.
  4. Allow the plugin settings for a target product to be copied to/from the (CEA/B) Custom Export Alpha/Bravo settings.
    A new administration tab will allow the target product to be chosen and provide the copy to/from operations.
The attached Export Gedcom File plugin Version 4.6.1 Date 12 Sep 2021 ZIP file implements the first two above.
Download then right-click and Extract All... before installing into FH.

On the Other Options tab, there is a tick option Make missing Birth/Death events for DNA products at the bottom.
The synthesised events use only the Year from the Date and add the approx/circa qualifier, e.g. 2 DATE ABT 1900
These events set the Place from the last comma-separated part of the dated fact if it exists, e.g. 2 PLAC England

The GEDCOM Export Mode: (FTD) Family Tree DNA now defaults to using this feature instead of replacing BAPM, CHR, BURI, CREM events.

The next development will be the latter two settings features above.
