Back in the old days (pre-computer days), we would write (Twin) next to a person's name to indicate that two children with the same birth date were indeed twins (or triplets, etc.) and not a transposition error. With PAF 5.1 you not only get a *Caution* beep when you enter the second child with the same birth date, but another beep when you enter "Twin" as a title, and are advised that relationships should not be entered in the full-name field.
Yes, I know I can enter "Twin" as a physical description; but that doesn't seem to be as meaningful.
How do others do it???
