This page describes a set of tests included in version 1.04 of the GEDCOM file assess.ged (download - view). Details change between versions.

Area Summary

Each person with the surname "Change Date" has records that test whether a CHAN (Change Date) record is supported for a particular parent record (HEAD, INDI, etc.).

Most target applications will have no trouble parsing a CHAN records or its subrecords, but some will not support showing the value for all possible parent records.

01-INDI Change Date

An INDI parent record with a CHAN record and DATE 1 JAN 2020 subrecord.

Test Result Criteria

  1. If a target application processes the CHAN record and displays its DATE value, set the test result to "Supported".
  2. If a target application ignores the CHAN record and its subrecords and does not issue an error message, set the test result to "Ignored".
  3. For any other outcome, set the test result to "Imported Incorrectly" and describe the outcome in the comment.
