Yes. I don't see that specifically very much, but when I do, it's referring to the association between this individual and the family members within the GEDCOM file.

It's hard to explain. It's basically residual information within a GEDCOM file that has no value on WikiTree.

I hope I had explained this okay via text... :-)

It's a first for me.  This group of profiles also has UPD

More junk?

If you will test it, go to one of your profiles you created and type ~~~~ (four tilde's ) and when those are saved it will give something similar for date and time ... serves rather like a signature and time stamp

Thanks, Ros, I did read that page, but it didn't list the 2 items I came across today.  Maybe they could be added to the help page.  More work for somebody.devil

I watched - I'm in stitches! ROFL wink
