the auto-matching process only uses ancestor data such as name, birth date, etc. and not the FS ID#




Also, if you check Tools>File Options and the number to display after the name you will find you have selected FSID. If you change it to RIN, that will be the number after all your names. It also sounds like you forced your Legacy GEDCOM file to have FSID as a fact and imported that into RM which RM did as a custom fact.

In Topic: Entering military service

You can have as many military facts as you need for an individual and I use both from/to and specific dates depending upon what it is. My father currently has 13 military facts (and rising as I work thru his personnel file from the National Archives) for his 20 years of service in the Navy. Some have from/to like ship deployments, schools or shore duty and promotions have a specific date. Mix and match as needed and you can be as detailed as you want, there is no standard.
