I would like to be able to enter a set of twins into Family Tree in the correct order of their birth, but they only get listed in the incorrect order because the second twin's name is closer to the beginning of the alphabet.
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
Great suggested enhancement.
You are not alone ...
Many of us have experienced that same.
This has been a much, requested; and, suggested, enhancement, in the various 'iterations', of this 'Feedback' Forums, in 'FamilySearch', over many years.
Unfortunately, to date, such has not been, implemented, in "Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch'.
We can only hope, that such has been considered by 'FamilySearch'; and, hopefully, may be somewhere, on the (ever-growing) "List" of things to be done.
Please be aware, that there is (an ever-growing) "List" of 'priorities' (of things to be actioned), in "Family Tree" (and, the OTHER Parts) of 'FamilySearch'; and, that there is a "Limited" amount of "Resources" (eg. "Funds") available to 'FamilySearch'.
'FamilySearch' was created by the Church.
'FamilySearch' is NOT a "Commercial" Website.
It really is, a matter of just, hoping; and, waiting.
Again, great suggested enhancement.
We can live in hope.
I know that this does not help; but, I hope that this gives you some insight and perspective,
Speaking as a twin: why does it matter to you? (Granted, our parents managed to name us in alphabetical order: J is three minutes older than M.)
That said, I would not be averse to being able to re-order siblings. Sometimes, I know the birth order but nothing about the actual birthdates. It would be nice to be able to capture that information in Family Tree in a simple, intuitive way (rather than needing to write a novel and then needing to decide where to put it).
Julia, Carolyn wants to have the correct birth order. That's not hard to understand.
This suggestion has been placed on this, and its "predecessor" forum, for many, many years. It is FamilySearch, not Julia ("I would not be averse to being able to re-order siblings"), who does not seem to think this issue should be given any kind of priority.
I would also like to know Carolyn's reason. Perhaps it would help to make a case for adding this feature.
Julia offered a great reason! I too have been frustrated working with families whose children have well documented birth order but no dates.
I, personally, wouldn't place much import on the order of entry but I would respect Carolyn's wish for it to be so. Perhaps at some future date...
