A better method to re-arrange sources in a person's source list
WHAT I AM TRYING TO DO - I want to do accurate research
I want an easier way to put the sources for a person into an organized list.
Right now it's difficult to "click and drag" them to new positions. They are resistant to moving easily.
A person with 49 sources makes it much harder to get them into a useful order.
THE PURPOSE OF ORGANIZING THE SOURCES IN THE SOURCE LIST
Sources define who a person is. They help prevent us from muddling up people with the same name who could otherwise be mistaken for each other.
I open and read a person's sources whenever I am doing more research, checking facts, writing a Life Sketch, a story etc and am finding it difficult when the sources are not arranged in a useful order.
THE MOST USEFUL WAY TO LIST SOURCES
It's helpful to have vital sources for the person at the top. Such as christening, birth, marriage, death, probate.
Census records for that person should go next and can be arranged in date order.
Any sources for their children (christenings and marriages of) need to be put below those two other categories. Because when all of the sources are mixed together it is difficult to hunt for the ones we want to review again.
SO WHAT IS THE PROBLEM
Currently sources can be arranged according to date, or we can click sort them with our own method.
The date sorting which is automatic when selected as an option, puts children in between census and 2nd Marriages go right down the list to spot they might hardly be seen.
I'd really like to see this problem fixed.
It's critical to proper research because we start our research with what we know, and what we know about the person is what is in their Source Records.
Please help with this.
