From here you can select the type fact you want to add, then enter the value of the fact, such as a place of residence or a death date.

You can also add Custom facts, which allow you to give your own name to the fact as well as providing a value.

Adding, Editing, and Deleting Facts

Once you have added Personal Information and/or a Military Event, you can add additional facts of the same typeby clicking on the + symbol at the right of the fact. For example, if you created a Custom Fact, you can add another Custom Fact using this + icon. If you added a Military Fact, clicking the + symbol will allow you to add another Military Fact for that conflict. If you want to add a fact that doesn’t match the type you’ve already added, you will need to follow the steps listed above.

You can also edit and delete individual facts by clicking on the fact to expand it, then clicking on the appropriate icon to the right.
