    I was referring to the FAM record itself, not to events within it, and thought you were too.

    Officially neither should be allowed, and no event should ever use it, but kiwitrees and webtrees have always broken the event rule and allowed them there.

    The proper use of ASSO is as descibed in the GEDCOM spec. as “An indicator to link friends, neighbors, relatives, or associates of an individual” and “The association pointer only associates INDIvidual records to INDIvidual records.”

    So:

    0 @[email protected] INDI
    1 NAME John /Smith/
    1 ASSO @[email protected]
    2 RELA godson
    Totally OK – the only GEDCOM approved use of the tag.
