Both are user defined facts.
There is a field in the original death fact for cause of death, along
with place and date.
Both could have been imported with a GEDCOM or other import from another
program, or you could have added them yourself.
You can do some editing and transfer the causes of death to the death
fact if you want to.
Go to the Lists menu, choose 'Fact type list' and highlight one of the
offending facts and click on Print. send it to a text file, it should
open in your text processor showing who has the fact and what is entered
Go to the persons in your database and copy the listed cause of death
into the field of the death fact. When you get all done with that "Fact"
you can delete it from the place list,
Then do the same with the other one.
Be warned though, not all programs handle the death fact the same way so
another program may not import the cause of death into it's death fact.
