Hi everybody. I entered a Marriage Licence Fact for a fella for his 2nd marriage but this marriage does not show in the Father B/M/D information area in Family view.
His 1st marriage was actually by Banns but I entered this as a plain Marriage Fact (Marr). She died before his 2nd marriage, with no children (not in the dB at least - I haven't actually looked for any!!).
The 2nd marriage was by licence, which was duly entered using the Marr Lic Fact type. There were 5 children, duly entered into the dB ('+Click to add child').
The spouses get shown when I click the '2' beside his name. Choosing the 1st spouse displays the marriage date and place. Click the '2' again, choose the 2nd spouse - no marriage date, place.
Sharing the Marr Lic Fact with the 2nd spouse does not display date, place against his name: this Fact has been left shared for the time being (probably to horror of some!!). Searching this forum using 'marriage', one post highlighted an issue between Ancestry and RM (TreeShare - Marriage Not Showing On Family View): a suggestion was to enter a Marriage Fact in RM as a workaround. Using that idea, I added a plain Marriage Fact (Marr) for the 2nd marriage - date and place shows against m: in the information area!!
Q - Is there something in RM7 preventing this 2nd marriage by licence showing in Family View. Does RM have something against marriages by licence!? I guess the obvious thing is to just use the Marr Fact only: however, using a Marr Lic Fact in the Edit Person window makes it obvious without opening the associated source. I haven't tried the Marr Bann Fact for the 1st spouse, so I don't know if a similar issue exists with that Fact type.
I'm using RM7.5.7.
