I have a male, number 497, in my database. His wife is number 502. When I open up HIS page, it shows two marriage facts. One regular and one that appears like a Shared Fact (in italics). On HER page there is only one marriage fact and listed in the normal manner.
When I click on the shared Marriage Fact, on the right hand side of the screen over the Date it says Shared - Marriage (His Name-497 and Her Name-502) - His name-497 and Her Name-502
The Note and the Source are identical for both the Marriage Fact and the Shared Marriage Fact on HIS screen.
Both spouses have only "1" showing in the number of spouses drop down next to their name.
Their is only one 497 in my list of people. (There are others with the same name but that is just a family name and none of the others have the same number or the same spouse.)
I tried running Duplicate under Data Clean to no avail.
I noticed that the regular Marriage Fact was Shared with 497 and he was listed as a witness. So I removed the reference to him as a Witness on the regular Marriage Fact. However the Shared Marriage Fact entry still existed. When I click on Share button on the Shared Marriage Fact, no one was listed there.
I decided to just delete the Shared Marriage Fact...well that caused both the Shared Marriage Fact and the regular Marriage Fact (in both 497 & 502 records) to disappear.
Can anyone explain to me what happened? Where did this problem come from? And if it does happen again, how to I resolve it without deleting the regular fact? (Luckily I have that information to re-enter easily)
