Well, then, enter a sort date. That's what it's for.

List order of like birth and death dates:
I did a three person test just now.

If I enter an individual and enter birth then death on the same date, the
death shows up before the birth in the edit person window.
If I enter an individual and enter the death date first, then the same birth
date, they show up in the explorer with the birth above the death.
Exactly the opposite what I would expect top to bottom as I enter them.

BUT, when I do a report, narrative, Individual summary or Individual list
they are reversed from what they show in the edit person window.

The family group sheet seems to list the birth before the death in either

If I enter the sort dates with death after birth, then they display and
report in the correct order
