How do I change the order of spouses? Even with the marriage date entered they don’t adjust so I have spouse #2 first then #1. The only thing I can think of is to delete husband #1 and then enter him again and hope he then shows up as #2.

TIA

Great thanks. Do you know how I do it? I can’t find anywhere where you can change the order like you can do it for order in the children.

Thanks

It is much easier than that. Edit the record of the person who has been married to multiple people. Scroll all the way to the bottom of the record and change the #1 and #2 at the bottom. That's all there is to it.

Do NOT delete the record... Instead edit the record of the person with multiple marriages. Scroll to the bottom. Change the order of marriages in the box that says #1 #2 etc. Click Save and exit... done

Thanks for all the replies. It worked on most of them. One of them in family view the spouses are now appearing in correct order, but when I change to Descendant view the 1st wife is in 3rd position. For the time being I just put a note on the person that will happen as they are correct in family veiw.

Also please be warned that, although you can re-order the spouses correctly in edit mode, to appear correctly in family display mode, in Reports they appear in DATE ENTERED order. This causes a lot of confusion.

I have been reporting this bug for several years now!
