A NOTE_STRUCTURE is a free form field for adding any comments or notes on a piece of data in the GEDCOM file. There are two possible formats for this structure:

  • embedded - the entire note structure is embedded within the piece of data it supports and 'n' is one higher than the level of the supported data.
  • linked - the subrecord is merely a link to a NOTE_RECORD, which is like an embedded NOTE_STRUCTURE but stands alone at level zero.

PhpGedView uses the embedded style exclusively. On import of a linked style, PhpGedView will .....

  n NOTE @<XREF:NOTE>@ {1:1}                          (linked)
  n NOTE [<SUBMITTER_TEXT> | <NULL>] {1:1}       (embedded)
