You can also display all data about deceased indivisuals with the choice View deceased.
At least, you can decide to consider the spouse of a living individual as contemporaneous (example: you only know the occupation of Mary Smith, et she is married to John Doo. Besides, John Doo is contemporaneous. If you check this box, Mary Smith will be noted as contemporaneous, and GénàToile will not display her occupation).
