    Best Way to Record Multiple Marriage Dates

    I have ancestors with diffent dates from different records for marriage. Is there a way to enter both in Reunion other than recording the second date in the Notes field? I'm hoping for a more elegant solution.

    Thanks!

    Could there have been a divorce and then remarriage?
    If not, Notes is all I've got too.

      You can enter multiple Marriage events by going to the Events tab when you are viewing the "primary" Marriage event information. Here you can add more Marriage, Divorce, Engagement, Sealing, Seperation, etc. events in the same way you might enter multiple Census, Employment, or Residence events for an individual.

      While this does not elevate the other marriages to quite the same level in the user interface as the first one I think it is equivalent in the internal representation and probably any exported GEDCOM. It also gives you use of the other typical event fields (Date, Place and Memo), and citation sourcing for each field.

      I think that's better than the more generic Notes solution.

        Thanks! This sounds feasible.

            That's a great idea! I'll try it.
