Feedback on mention of draft registrations in timeline
When a woman is listed for her husband for a draft registration card, it comes up as her serving in the military, which is not correct. For example, see Leora May Carter KWCV-L23. If you go to her timeline, it says "View your ancestor's military draft card", but this is for the draft card for her husband and not for her.
That is ...a very strange bug.
It does not appear to be based on anything that's actually on her profile: the index entry clearly shows her as a subsidiary person, not the primary ("Leora May Schaerrer in entry for Shadrach Lester Schaerrer"), and there's no event or fact associated with it in her Other Information section.
The "Other Events" checkbox on the timeline's filters actually controls three different items, each one more inexplicable than the last:
Discover your ancestor's occupation. * Age 16
In the 1935 census, dicover your ancestor's occupation.
View your ancestor's military draft card. * Age 21
Discover your ancestor's occupation. * Age 41
In the 1960 census, discover your ancestor's occupation.
1935 census? Of what?
Draft card? She's female.
1960 census?? The 1960 U.S. Census will not be public for nearly another decade.
All three have a "View Record" button that becomes visible upon clicking their box, but all three buttons go to an "FHC/AL only" image (for me), so I can't even see what type of census it's talking about for the first and last one.
My conclusion is that the "Other Events" checkbox goes with a set of "fluff pieces", which have not been programmed very well. My best advice is to uncheck the box.1
