There is another little quirk with the "add marrage date" too.If a person has multiple marriages, adding a new marriage date through the spouse with the first marriage will change the date of the first marriage. Example of how to accomplish this-John Jones married Susie Smith Oct 4,1880-Susie Smith Jones dies and he then marries Nancy Brown on Sep 10, 1882-in order to get the correct marriage date for John and Nancy, you will have to go through Nancy Brown to add the marriage date for John Jones. If you try to add the 2nd marriage through John Jones, you will change the first marriage date for Susie Smith. This is a quirk that I wish Ancestry would fix. What will cause problems here is if Nancy Brown had been married before and you have her first marriage recorded too. If that be the case, her marriage to the first spouse would have to be accomplished through him instead of her. Surely hope I have explained this as best as I can.
