"Universal Genealogical Abbreviations and Symbols"

                     While conducting research I've filled page after page with names, dates, places, and side-notes. I developed my own style of grouping facts from my research using key-board symbols, symbols and abbreviations that appear globally on a daily basis.

Example: ([-] for birth)([ _ ] for death)([=] for marriage)([@] for place)([~] for about)([<] for before)
([>] for after)                                      ([=II] for 2ND marriage)


"The Countries flag can be added to your research instead of the text"
Religious Signs and Symbols
This would be a fantastic idea in my humble opinion. I would love to have further input and ideas...
