This is probably simple but My age is showing. I have forgotten how and where to enter the printed Obituaries that are Emailed to me. Please help and thanks for a great program.

An obituary is just another kind of source. I would add all obituaries as sources then link them to the various facts that they cite for Individuals and Families.

Many obits will list family member names, spouses of children or even grand children. These facts are all cited using the obit as a source.

Personally, I simply add them as a note to the death event, and reference the obit where appropriate for birth, wedding, or other events.
