Does anyone know why the Alt. Name for a spouse appears before the marriage, and how do I change the order. I assume it is in this order because it is displayed in Alpha. order.

It must be alphabetically related.  I notice that if I don't put down a specific burial date, then the burial appears before the death.  Just looks kinda weird.  Even if I put just the year of burial, it happens this way.  Maybe a better improvement would be for the RM programming squad to put "year only" events at the bottom of the year queue instead of the top?

There is a sort date field near the Save button that you can enter a date to have the fact sort on. If you have more than one event on the same day then use -1, -2 to sort them after the date.

 

Death: 2 Jan 1898-1

Burial: 2 Jan 1898-2

 

The sort date will not appear on any reports. It just controls the order the facts are listed.

Thanks Renee, I was unclear how this worked!
