Genealogical signs

When we do research it is sometimes not possible for various reasons to put “birth" every time we mention the date. Also when we use more then one language it is helpful to use signs that we all know. This saves time and prevents misunderstandings.

We use the following signs:

Birth: °
Baptism: ≈
Marriage: x
Death: +

So your data should be displayed like this when you create your own document:

Stefan Djukanović

° Milanovac 22-05-1843
≈ Milanovac 28-05-1843
+ Belgrade 12-03-1899
x Belgrade 12-12-1862
And you continue like this with the spouse.
