Data Validation Reports

TNG V11 adds several validation reports.

  1. The wrong gender report will erroneously flag up the 'Father' entry in a lesbian relationship or the 'Mother' in a male gay relationship.
  2. The unknown gender report includes stillbirths where the gender was not recorded.
  3. If you enter dates as "bef x" or "aft x", be aware that TNG interprets both of these as "in x".
  4. A date entered simply as a year is interpreted as 1 Jan. In the not uncommon situation of an infant death in the same year on an unknown date it's necessary to put something like "bet 15 Jun 1892 and 31 Dec 1892".
