Hi Matthew,

When we encounter this at DU we put "undated" in the expression (which allows for text, so you can write things like "undated," "circa 1975," etc.) and leave the Begin and End dates blank. Example: http://duarchives.coalliance.org/repositories/2/archival_objects/14766

Hello collective wisdom

I am having trouble figuring out how to add a date that is unknown. According to DACS undated is used but the field only allows for dates. So what is used here?
