    GenoPro does not allow circa or c in front of a date. If entered, it just removes it.
    Instead, it allows the Tilde character (~). Similarly, one can use < and > to mean before and after.
    I think it changes such instances to the Gedcom standard (ABT/BEF/AFT) when producing the external file.

    If only all Family Tree Programs restricted people to only entered valid dates there would be a lot less errors in our trees.
