Christening date option when adding new person box appears
It would be great if you could also add a Christening Date and Christening Place box as part of adding a new person. The Christening date and Birth date can be very different. I find a lot of people put the Christening date in the birth date because there isn't the option to put the Christening date when you are making a new person, and generally they do not go back later and change it.
A very good idea for at least two reasons:
(1) As Diane states, many users input the christening details instead of birth data at this point, meaning the incorrect place and date remain until another user (like me!) has to change / delete it.
(2) I find christening data is far more common for me to have at hand when adding most of my new IDs. Entering this could help find an existing record for that person at this point. I do not want to add a birthplace and date based on guesswork because (again as Diane comments) this might be totally different from the christening event it would be based upon.1
I agree with Paul W. I have a lot of records where I only have the christening date. Since this information can not be added when creating a person from a record, I spend a lot of extra time going into new records to add the information. It also means that I often find a record later and have to do merging.1
