Re: Adding sources to a second marriage

"Another solution, maybe faster (I just thought of it, but haven't tried): in the Relationship Events tab, change the date of the marriage for which you have a source so that it's the first of the list, then add the source, then put back the correct date."


This could get things messed up since, if all you are changing is the date, it's going to say "marriage to Second Wife," but with the first wife's date - and I don't think you will be able to edit that.

My solution is slightly different - unless it's a second marriage for both, I just click "add to someone else in my tree," and add the source document to the spouse who has only one marriage (and with a few cantankerous exceptions, the database will add to both spouses simultaneously).
