Automatically add source for sources attached to marriage events to each partner
When we add a source for a marriage event, automatically add that source to each partner in the marriage on their SOURCES page.
Detail: When I add a source for a marriage record to the marriage event, it adds that source to that event, but does not add it to the sources for each of the partners in the marriage.
For example, https://www.familysearch.org/tree/person/sources/LYR6-VST did not automatically have that source attached - I had to go to his Sources and to his wife's and manually attach that same source to each.
Why - it's important to be able to see the names people use throughout their lives in the SOURCES list and the marriage record is often a clue to middle initials and names from multiple marriages. Plus, it would save us lots of inefficient clicking.
Yes, please!! It's currently incredibly inefficient to add to all 3 people's "source" tag, and also to the "marriage source" section.
With the current layout, you also have to click the "edit" pencil to even see that there is a marriage source, so anyone new to Family Search may miss vital information.1
Thanks, that's a good point BigelowAnna.
It's also hard to do this the other way - if I add the marriage record to the Source for one of the partners in the marriage, then I have to go to the Marriage event and attach it (a process that involves many clicks and being asked to give a reason for attaching) AND then I have to go the other partner and attach (again with several clicks and being asked a reason for attaching).
Ideally, we'd enter a Marriage source on the Marriage event - once, with a reason for attaching it given once and it would just put that Source on the Sources list for both of the people in that marriage.0
