How do you put multiple dates in someone's contact card?
Posted by: space-time

I have persons for whom I want to put multiple dates. One field is their birthday, but I may want to put additional dates, such as anniversaries, etc. I keep forgetting about my parents wedding anniversary and I want to add this to my Mom's contact card. My dad was born on one day (December) but his parents went to the town-hall to declare him a month later (January). That effectively made him to go military service a year later. So I usually call him on both dates. and so on.

I would like to have these show up in calendar. I could created duplicates, like the real name with one date, and Daddy with the other date. Or I could make a new card called My Parents and enter their wedding anniversary as birth date. But is there a simpler way? do add certain dates to a card, in addition to birth-day field?

Thanks

In Contacts app, there’s an add date right below the add birthday field.

But I don’t think that this technique will create an automatically recurring event in Calendar which will appear every year as a birthday does.

That seems to be correct.

I haven’t been sold on that birthday feature, so I don’t actually use it... well, full disclosure, I’ve kept a birthday calendar category since the Now Contact days, imported into iCal when OSX became my main system.
Not a reason to migrate the info, but some may say I’m just lazy, haha...
