The RM Help file says when dragging a person between databases, you have to drag both the person and the spouse in order to copy family facts like marriage.

 

How do you drag both husband and wife together?

 

When I drag a person, there are several choices such as person plus ancestors, but not one for just person and spouse.  There is a choice for let me choose people from the database.  Is that how to do it?

 

Thanks,

Jeff

There's several ways to do it. You can indeed specifiy individuals one person at a time, and so doing you can click on both a person and their spouse (two separate clicks, one for each person). But it's much easier to choose the "Descendants and their spouses" option and to specify just one generation. The really important trick for this option is to remember to specify to copy just one generation.

When dragging the person select "Descendants and their spouses" and Generation: 1 and it only include that individual and their spouse.
