Hi,

I have a couple of databases where I entered the date that people were
christened instead of date of birth, the latter being unknown.
However, The Narrative Web Report seems to use the event Baptism
instead of Christening.

Is there an easy way to change Christening to Baptism for all entries
in the database?

I tried to export GRAMPS XML, issue a search/replace on the text and
then re-import the XML. This seems to work but can I be sure no
information gets lost this way?

If you do it correct, all should be fine with search/replace on XML.
Doing a diff of the two xml' s before and after replace should give you certainty.

Benny
