    links to other notes

    Is there a way to embed a link in a notes field that will link to other notes created in the family file?

    No, this would be something for the wish list.

      I shall wish it then. Do I need to post this in the Wish List forum?

        Nope -- I'll add it to our internal wish list with a link to this forum thread.

          I've been asking for this for years! It would be so good... But it's probably majorly complicated to write

            I too wish there was a general notes that I could post to, linked or not. For example, I discovered in searching an Italian ancestor, she was listed by her maiden name. Little did I know that women adopting their husbands names was an American tradition. I thought this was a useful fact for my family tree, but not one I wished to bury in a particular person's note. In the absence of being able to write a general note to this effect, I have been using the log files to write my notes.

            Yes, I wish it were not in the log files, but maybe log files is just a bad name for me. I have been using the log files as the best way for me to write a note that is not attached to a family. Now, it could be better if I could add a source or possibly make the note a sourced link that I could attached to persons in the same way other sources are linked.

              Peter W - notes: you can make a note category just for informative bits like the use of maiden name in other cultures OR add a footnote to the appropriate entry in your notes.

                BL Samuel, I'm not sure I understand your suggestion. I know I can create a note in a person view. How do I create a note that is not in a person view? In the sidebar I see Family View, Edit Person, Family Tree, etc. Logs is the closest I can find to "Notes". I might like a note that describes who is in (or not in) a given family file. I think that would be useful for someone I may share my family tree with, or note so I know who I shared my family tree with.

                  I use Notes and Logs as follows. My notes are for specific findings about a person or couple. I have note categories for Personal Accounts, Transcribed Records, Transcribed Letters, Military Service, Medical Info, etc. Also a note titled Narrative, where I write my account of this person's life. I can add special notes to an individual if needed.
                  My Logs are of mainly two types: 1) Research Needed logs for stuff I need to research in specific places, libraries, and court houses; eg. GA research, NC research, SC-Horry research, SC Columbia research-USCLib & SCDAH, TN research-Knoxville, TN research-Clarksville, VA research, etc.; these are my To Do lists when traveling. 2) Family logs for findings not yet analyzed. When researching in a particular library or court house, findings go into general family logs such as Adams family, Barnhill family, Dickerson family, Dozier family, etc. Later, I can analyze these findings and update the appropriate person card and person notes. I currently have about 10 place logs and 18 family logs active.
                  I also use logs for miscellaneous general reference information that I might need when in a library (eg. Charleston proprietary, colonial, parish, district, & county date ranges).
                  As you can see, I create a log whenever I need it for general notes, and (hopefully) update person records and clear the log promptly. Reunion is commendable for its flexibility. I'm always interested in how others use its features.
