Marriage Date/Place Display in Records
Richard George Reynolds said: In the Family Members field of a record the spouse of the individual appears with a marriage date/place in between. Though I often attache a complete marriage date and place, only a fraction date/year or place/state often appears. In going to enter the "COMPLETE" information so it appears in the record, I will find 2-3-4, as many as 10 entries, one of which is the complete DD/MMM/YYYY and Place I entered, as well as similar or fragments of the data. The only way to ensure the COMPLETE data appears visible seems to be to delete the other entries. The display does not appear to be last entered or last edited, but some random selection of the multiple data points in the record. Rather than having to delete multiple entries, or worse - edit them all to be the same, or have some else touch the field and have some other version be displayed ... 1) Always display last entered or last edited in that order or 2) Designate a preferred. I have found lots of valuable complete date hidden in this field by the seemingly random display processing.
