Where to see custom event types?

Recommended Posts

From the help when importing GEDCOM:

Quote

Import Custom Event Types Only (no data is added, replaced or appended)

Checking this option will cause only Custom Event Types to be imported (see Admin/Custom Event Types). All other data is ignored. This is an ideal option to select during your initial setup, as it will allow you to see which custom events you have in your gedcom. You can then select which ones to accept and which ones to ignore before importing your entire database.

Where exactly is the magic undocumented location you go to to see the custom events that result when you select this option?

(I did this for a new (second) test tree called temp and it reported IIRC 25 new custom types.)

Go to admin --> Custom Event Types

There you will find them.

 

Kind regards,

Excellent, thanks Rob. That screen unfortunately does not show what tree the types are associated with, but at least it shows them!

I do not think that the Custom Event Types are associated with any tree.  There is nothing in the Help screen that indicates association with a tree.
