Is there any way to add a note or reference or source so that the Burial Place will appear in the Gedcom in standard format as BURI

1 BIRT Boston MA USA

1 BURI

2 PLAC Riverdale Cemetery

1 DEAT Buffalo NY

I need BURI in the gedcom show that Family Book Creator (FBC) will see it as a Place Name

FBC is part of Family Tree Maker

thanks

1. Put the information inside the biography, already formatted as GEDCOM, hidden from data doctors and other well-meaning folk inside an HTML comment, i.e.

<!

1 BURI

2 PLAC Riverdale Cemetery

-->

2. Export the GEDCOM.

3. Use a script written in Perl, Python, Lua or whatever to take it out of the biography and into your GEDCOM data,

Dirk:

thanks for the reply

#3. is an issue, I don't do programming

I'm hoping Wikitree can add Burial Place to the Profile

so that it will go onto the Gedcom normally

without Burial place in the Gedcom I can't use Wikitree as my primary trees as I need to use Family Book Creator

I can't do edits to both Family Tree Maker and Wikitree for sources etc

way too much manual work for thousands of profiles

looks like my plans for Wikitree have hit a roadblock :(

Can you run a script someone else wrote from the command line?
Yes, I know how to do that

thanks

Lew
