Annulled Marriages

Post by David_Lewis » 26 Feb 2017 23:07

I've been doing a lot of work on the line of succession to the British throne and the descendants of the Electress Sophia. I've come across a number of marriages that have been Annuled rather than ending in divorce. There doesn't seem to be an option in the status box to record this. Is there a reason for this.

I would suggest using the standard Annulment Event and Divorce Event to record those states rather than the Status for a number of reasons.

Firstly, _STAT is a non-standard FH extension to the Gedcom and so will not export well to other products.

Secondly, the Events can record Date and Place and cite Sources, etc.

I don't really understand why Divorced is in the Status options since the Divorce Event is far superior.
The other Status options cannot be recorded in standard Events.

Thanks Mike. Should have looked in the events options.

I suspect Divorced is a status as it allows the triggering of the / over the marriage link line on diagrams.

Ah, yes, all the Status values can affect the marriage link line as set in Diagram > Options > Lines > Marriage Status Line Options.
