Question from Jim:
After entering a wife and children, I found that there was an earlier wife and children. When I added that wife and printed a descendant list, the wives are listed in the order in which I entered them rather than in chronological order. How do I get them in chronological order in the list?
Answer from Millennia:
With your subject line of "Reordering Wives" I initially thought that you wanted to place an order for a new one. :)
Follow these instructions to change the order of marriages:
- In the Family View, click on the person's Spouse Icon, or click on View > Spouse List.
- Click on the Sort button on the right. Note: all marriages with no marriage dates are sorted to the top and the remaining are displayed in date order.
- If you still need to change the order, highlight the spouse you want moved, then click the up or down button in the lower right corner of the window until he/she is in the right position.
