Hi Tombi
The sign for death is not a + (plus) but a "dagger" or "cross" sign to get
this character you need to:
Hold the alt button down plus the numbers 0134 and you will then end up with
the symbol †
If anyone would like the windows ANSI chart please let me know and will
gladly email it to them.
Regards

Hi,
The South African symbols are so odd....why have a + for a death!!

x for a marriage is o.k.!!

Surely it would have been more logical to have a + for a birth and a - for a

death....who decided on these symbols?!!!!
How long has this system been in place...

I've been transcribing information from a file received from a relative and
I've become accustomed to the system but I still think it's highly
illogical!!

Best wishes,
Tombi Peck
