Is there no way to put in dates from BC?

You are correct; Family Echo does not support BC dates. I did a little experimenting, and if you import a GEDCOM file with BCE dates, it imports those dates as AD dates.

You could do something like put a note in the BIO field that indicates the dates.

You now can, it's a new feature. Just click the little arrow near a person's birth/death date and they now have a clickable box for BCE

Nice. I don't suppose anyone has checked whether it exports/imports GEDCOM files with BCE dates?
