Publication sounds like a better catch all.
I wasn't intending it to be a catch-all. Most newspaper articles
are reporting an event. A letter to the editor is an example where
may not be the case.
I was suggesting a "Publication" event where someone published
something, such as a book, article, letter, paper etc...
Examples from my trees.
1 - two articles
involving custody issues - while it doesn't provide the name
of the minor child, it does provide an age so I used it as
part of the birth event. Since it's within living lifespans I
haven't written the private back story as a note, but I
should. A publication event would let me set it at the
Such articles probably provide evidence of a court case, which would
be the event.
2 - Some WWII newspaper
articles mention a cousin being home from the war zone or
somebody completing training. Sort of military service,
especially since it mentions promotions, but most of the
article is about her service.
Yes, this would provide evidence of a "Military Service" event.
3 - Mentions of an uncle
who played football who was well known at the college level
and briefly known as part of the NFL. Publication would
definately help tie the newspaper articles to a time &
place with a note plus image.
If they were a professional footballer then this would provide
evidence of an "Occupation" event. I suppose if it was a report of
a particular match, you may want to record this as a separate event.
This reminds me that I have used "Apprenticeship" and "Retirement"
as event types.
