Still cannot add daughter Sarah to this file.

For some reason, this person who is editing this particular entry will not allow it because I refuse to put the date in the way he chooses which is

1900-04-03 - which wil just confuse me later or others who are not Yankees.  I prefer to put the actual month in- written out like January or whatever,  Will someone please address this issue - quite happy to put it ih as 23 January 1900 or January 23, 1900

Either of those are fine.

I would choose January 23, 1900.

If I know the month, I spell it out. If I was referencing something given as "1900-04-03", I would have to show it just like that, because I can't tell if what's meant is April 3 or March 4.
Agree with you  tho I think it i either the month or either the day (???) which follows the year.  Am sure I could probaby do this but would need the actual procedure layed out and would stick it on my machine.  However, many many people can't tell which is which.

Agree with you 100%
I just checked Mary Albright's profile & it looks like you were able to add daughter Sarah - All set now?
p.s. Don't forget to add your sources!
Yes, all set.  About the sources, just have her birth & death date but do have someplace a copy of her marriage record.  Will put that on later this week as will be busy tomorrow with company.  I know about needing sources but guess it never hurts to remind people.
