Add an Occupation Box
I would like to request that an Occupation box be added to the Detail page on the right side as the 6th box. Two important things about occupation:
- It can be an invaluable tool to determining if merges are correct, and if the parents are listed with the correct children. For this reason, it would be helpful if the Occupation is included at the merge screen.
- The occupation defines a person. I have found that the ancestor occupation is an important bit of information to novices to FamilySearch. Knowing the occupation helps connect us to our ancestors and helps us understand their economic level in society.
Currently occupations is buried in a cumbersome way in other information.
Currently I am using notes to accomplish this. with Occupation as the title and list the year and occupation. Example:
1871 census- cotton weaver
(then I list in year order records that list the occupation)
Also, a thanks to all the engineers at FamilySearch. This is really a fantastic bit of software!
