Task 1 - Upload FTM2012 to AMT - Double Dates

The second part of Randy Searver's blog post:

 Task 1 - Upload RootsMagic 5 GEDCOM file to Ancestry Member Tree

talked about handling of a Double Date. I used his example of 20 Mar 1629/30.

 So, it appears that the Birth Fact properly reflects the Double Date from FTM2012 to the AMT.
