Legacy Custom GEDCOM tags

Legacy has several information fields that don't have a standard GEDCOM tag associated with them.  The GEDCOM specification allows anyone to create new tags for this type of information.  These custom tags begin with an underscore to indicate that they are not part of the standard core tag set.  Below is a list of the custom tags created by Legacy.  To view a list of custom GEDCOM tags from other programs, see article "GEDCOM Tags - Custom Tags in Other Programs" .
