Add support for more event types to FamilyTree
To preface my request, I have to explain why it is important. Most of my work in the last ten years has focused on one family in the state of Virginia in the time period of 1750 to 1840. My work relies heavily on the Film Viewer and has resulted in thousands of new events and sources. The events are typically of the type:
The issue is that all of these are Custom Events without a GEDCOMX tag. Because they lack a defined tag, exporting via the API causes problems for third-party applications. RootsMagic, for example, interprets the Title of Custom Event field as the tag and creates a new event type. When I import a Custom Event, manual labor is required to move the data to the correct event type and delete the bogus event from the event type list.
What I propose is to add the above event types to the +ADD EVENT list with API support. All of these tags are defined in GEDCOMX, but FamilySearch has not implemented them.
It would be nice if I could assign/or change the tag belonging to the Custom Event rather than delete and recreate the event.
