    Born 26 March 1949 (age 66)

    above is example from a Wikipedia entry. As the person is living, it gives their current age in brackets. I’ve seem this too in some genealogy programs.

    This would be great addition to kiwitrees instead of stopping to “do the math” each time. Placement could be in the title bar near the year of birth, and/or with the birth tag entry.

    That’s already there, and always has been.

    Works fine for me in all themes.

    Send me all the GEDCOM data for that individual.

    Is this your personal GEDCOM or your Royals?

    I have NEVER seen current age going back to every flavour of kiwitrees/webtrees/PGV using Xenea, Minimal. Only taking umpteen years to realize it 🙂

    Can’t remember where theme change is now — Admin > ??

    Can view on The Royals.

    OK, I’ve had a look at your Royals site.

    The problem is that you have “Age at which to assume a person is dead” set at 1 year. Set it back to a more normal 100 or 120 years and the age will display.

    I should explain how the age display works….

    Before displaying the age the systems checks:
    1 a) does this person have a valid birth date, and
    1 b) does this person have a death record
    If 1 a) is positive and 1 b) is negative (i.e. was born and is not dead) then it will display age as at today.
    If a) or b) fail, then it goes on to:
    2 a) does this person have a valid birth date and
    2 b) does this person have a valid death date
    If 2 a) AND 2 b) are positive then it will display age on death.

    If both 1 and 2 fail, then no age can be calculated or displayed.

    So, I looked at indi George Henry Hubert LASCELLES (Q244).
    1 a) – yes he has a valid birth
    1 b) – he has no death recorded, and was certainly still alive in 2011 when he married. BUT, you have it set that anyone over the age of 1 year is assumed to be dead.
    So it fails test 1, and cannot show his age as at today.
    But also, he has no valid date of death, so he fails test 2 as well.
    Hence no age can be displayed at all.
