Hi Sageflat and Dklart
Yes, I am working online using the Ancestry database. I go into an individual and 'Add a fact', select 'Residence' and then complete the three required fields. There is no facility at that point, nor when you revisit the created Fact, to attach it to anyone else. When I attach media to that Fact I get the option to attach that media to other database individuals - but not the Fact as well. So then I have to go into each of the individuals separately and 'Add a fact' and then link each one to the media already attached to them.
This is really tedious, especially as there is a mechanism for linking two people to a fact i.e. marriage.
I do also use the Family Tree Maker database so perhaps that might be a better way to do this? I don't find the FTM terribly easy to use though :-(
Thanks for your thoughts
