Marriage Dates Not Always Displaying Correctly

18 August 2017 - 10:03 AM

Is anybody having intermittent problems with incorrect marriage dates being shown in Family View after using the toolbar button to add a spouse?


Having successfully entered several marriages in RM today by using the toolbar button to add a spouse, I have had two instances of Family View incorrectly showing the details of marriages for other people in my database.  I have run database tools and restarted RM but the problem persists if I use the toolbar button to add a spouse.  If I add a marriage fact to one of the parties to the marriage, then add date, place and spouse that way, the marriage details are correctly displayed in Family View.


I am not sure whether the problem is actually with the toolbar button or whether it is related to my computer.  I am running RM on Mac OS 10.11.6.


TreeShare Name Sources

27 July 2017 - 04:02 AM

When using TreeShare I have often noticed name sources on Ancestry which are not in RM.  Unfortunately, using the "update name in RM" option does not appear to work.


Apologies if this has already been reported.

Individual summaries not displaying multiple marriages correctly

27 July 2017 - 03:18 AM

I have not been able to find any posts about this problem so I hope I am not duplicating something which has already been reported.


I noticed yesterday that an Individual Summary for an ancestor who married twice was showing the marriages in the wrong order despite the fact that the marriages had partial dates of "1829" and "Jul 1862".  Although I cannot be certain, it may have been that I had entered the second marriage into Roots Magic first.  Is there an issue with the way in which RM sorts marriages for Individual Summaries?  All other facts appear in strict chronological order.


I eventually unlinked both spouses and all children from my ancestor.  I then added the first marriage and children again before adding the second marriage.  The individual summary then showed both marriages in the correct order.
