GEDitCom, and perhaps other programs, have recently added the
custom tag _UMR for family relationships in which a child was
produced but no marriage occurred, so the titles HUSB/WIFE are
inappropriate or most certainly no factual.

This tag is displayed as

_UMR Y

and if so formatted converts the headings/tags for the HUSB/WIFE
within that "family" unit to FATHER and MOTHER (although it
doesn't change the gedcom files notations).

The tag is removed if a MARR occurs and would not be reflected
as _UMR N.

    When there is no MARR record for a family, the headers are
    already changed from HUSB/WIFE to FATHer/MOTHer.
    It seems to me that we dont need this _UMR tag.

    The current configuation, without the special tag, is a fine
    solution. Thank you.
