Married status

Post by Kirsten » Tue Nov 01, 2011 5:44 pm

I notice that on ancestor chart there ends up being no difference in listing under a person's name a "spouse" who was not married, but produced a child and a married spouse, for whom I have not as yet entered the actual wedding date, but I know for a fact that the couple was married.

In both cases they just show up with a little Plus sign whereas in the cases where I have entered a wedding event an "m" indicates that.

Here is my question:
Is there a way for me to give married status to a couple without as yet knowing the date and the place of the actual event?

Hi Kirsten,

I think the only way you can do this is to enter something in the marriage field under the Family tab.

This can be the date or place (possibly a note) and don't forget to press enter.

The date could be abt 1800 or anything reasonable - before birth of first child if that date is known for example.

The location could be 'The Church'. Or just 'Marriage details unknown'.

Hope this helps.

Hi Nigel,

You've done it again!

It worked.
Just entering a note about how I know of the marriage did the trick.
And thanks for the reminder to hit enter!
