In Topic: Remove unknown spouse

17 February 2021 - 07:55 PM

Somehow I managed to have two spouses for a guy one of which is Unknown but he only has one.  How do I get rid of the unknown spouse?

Should they be identical persons and details, just merge them.

Should you have added another spouse in error, just unlink the wrong spouse. If this person is not meant to be added to another spouse, child or parents, delete the person if it is not a person you wish to keep on file.

In Topic: Identify Unknown Spouse

12 February 2021 - 02:53 PM

When I first entered data for a family I did not have the info for the wife.  The program has Unknown Spouse as the spouse name.  How to do replace that with name of the spouse?

Simply highlight the "unknown" word or delete the "unknown" word and type in the name.

In Topic: Merging Sources - RM7

07 February 2021 - 05:48 PM

Does anyone know how (or if it is possible) to perform a multiple manual master source merge, where source #1 is the one to keep, and sources #2 - #n are to be merged? (This is not the same as an automatic source merge because the sources to be merged are not exact duplicates). In other words, I have the source identified that I want to keep, and I have found several others, that are essentially the same, that I want to merge into the first one. Instead of having to manally merge each one at a time, I want to select several to be merged and do them all at once. Any help on this will be appreciated.



Rick only way is one at a time.

Any business who does not miss their customers will not be in business for very long and the mass exodus stated here is only the tip of the iceberg imo, It's easy to lose customers and supporters like you, I and the many others who have declared the throwing in of the towel, but it's a completely different and tougher challenge to try and win them and their support back after completely dismissing their needs.


All my images have now been removed from these Rootsmagic forums ad the company have declared the archiving of it in the near future so for now the link below is as close as you will get to that elusive and largely unfulfilled list which will be erased from history in the very near future, but then we just take our inspirations, visions and ideas to another provider and invest in their product. Que Sera Sera.

Well said Vyger. The line of troops goes well into the distance.

Since it is a log of the Feedback submitted to the RM Inc tracking system, it should have no effect on what is submitted. So that should not be a concern.


A helpful enhancement to the RM Inc tracking system would be an ID for the Feedback report sent in the confirmation email to the submitter. That could be entered in our independent Log. If that ID was unique to the issue reported, not just the serial number of the report, it would be even better!

Tom, consistency here is a real issue. People are wanting to help, but are not getting helpful feedback. If the feedback is not to RM liking, things get closed down. If RM do not like what people say they are thrown out the window. What is the future.

Currently it is like a train wreck in the jungle where there no communications and no access roads in to rescue. Also like when you hit an ants nest with a sledge hammer, ants go running in all directions.

People need to keep giving feedback. People need feedback when details are given, and RM need to come out on a regular basis to advise where they are up to. Unless this happens confusion reins.
