Early on I used the estimated dates feature in FTM. I have spent
years fixing the errors it caused. There is just so much error in old
records that we have no idea when people were born, whether there may
have been a later wife/mother we don't have a record for, even whether
the child shown on the census belonged to the subject family. I would
want to be able to control how, and when, this feature was used. I
find it just as easy to make this determination manually.
