I do not use custom events and facts very often. Now I wanted to test something and was a little bit puzzled:-)

This GEDCOM snippet:
1 FACT Holiday
2 TYPE Summer
2 RESN confidential
2 DATE 15 AUG 1979

is displayed this way:


I would expect, that in the left column will be "Holiday", and in the right column the type - "Summer". Just like Education is in my opinion "Fact" and "stredoškolské" is the "Type". "Summer Holiday" or "Holiday (Summer)" would be also OK.

Is this a bug, a feature, or is just my understanding of the custom Fact/Events wrong?

This is working correctly.

Compare these 3 examples:

1 OCCU Farmer

1 FACT Farmer
2 TYPE Occupation

1 FACT Farmer

These are displayed as

Occupation: Farmer

Occupation: Farmer

Fact: Farmer

The GEDCOM standard says:

The TYPE tag can be optionally used to modify the basic understanding of its superior event or attribute.


The GEDCOM standard goes on to say:

* Note: The usage of IDNO or the FACT tag require that a subordinate TYPE tag be used to define what kind of identification number or fact classification is being defined


The emphasis is mine!

OK it seems that webtrees works like GEDCOM definition is written.

My understanding was, that FACT is something less specific, and the TYPE is giving better secification. Like in a marriage fact i cann have type = religious, civil, unknown, ....

So in my case would be correct:
1 FACT Summer
2 TYPE Holiday

Thanks for clarification.
