Please excuse this it's not super important but... prior to having kids my parents had a dog which they called their "first child". Lots of folks have pets [dogs, cats] which they treat as members of their immediate family. So I am wondering, since I ran across photos of my parents' dog, is there a recommended way to add information about non-human animals? Should I create a record for him? But that would create issues such as no "owner" vs mother or father, etc.

Anyway it just seems that someone may have considered this before but I can't find anything searching the forum. Maybe it's just too silly.

GEDCOM has a "Property" tag, where you can list the possessions owned by an individual. I would do something like this.

1 PROP Spot
2 DATE FROM 1998 TO 2007

But if you want to create a record for the dog, then you can link it using a "Associate" link on the owner's record.

1 ASSO @I2@
2 RELA pet

> Maybe it's just too silly.

Maybe. But you don't have to be serious all your life ;-)

Thanks Greg, I will consider pros/cons for property vs associates and go with one of them.

I ended up creating a new individual for the dog, so I could link it to both of my parents. This required adding a 'Pet' entry to the GedcomCodeRela.php file. How do you feel about adding this to the official source? Or will I need to manually re-add it after future upgrades?

Thanks for your consideration.

I don't think it is appropriate to add this, so you'll need to modify your own code after each upgrade.
