Just noticed a minor issue with GEDCOM validation.

If I set the restriction on a residence fact to 'privacy' I get an error when I run 'Validate GEDCOM Data...'.
  • INDI.RESI.RESN with value 'privacy' is an invalid GEDCOM tag at this location.
This is a valid record in GEDCOM.

Regards, Richards

Yes. I added RESN in some new places allowed in GEDCOM 5.5.1, but forgot that one. GEDitCOM II will still read and use it. The next version (posting soon) will have it fixed.
