I am trying to enter a father for Esther Hitchen (Hitchen-170) who was born in 1860. I have tried to enter her father George Hitchen who was born in 1820 and died in 1902. When I try to save this profile for George I get an error message' invalid date"

 1. This person has data indicating they are both living (active Wiki Tree user) and not living ( death date 1902-07-02 death date not living) aged 198.

2. A living person should not have a child (Hitchen-170) born 17 Jan 1860, died, 9 Nov 1933) that was born or died more than 150 years ago.

I have tried the different options with the radio buttons for birth date and death date. However, I still get the same error message. "Error invalid date"

I am fairly new to Wiki Tree and have had this same message before. What am I doing wrong?

Make sure the radio button beneath the death date field for "still living" isn't selected when trying to save.

I have tried entering the correct birth and death dates ie 1820 and 1902 with daughter born 1860 and died 1933 and still get this error message???
It's really not clear what is happening, Carl, but I entered the death date for George and it saved without an issue.
