I just want to suggest that everyone patch their Windows PCs as quickly as possible. There is a very serious flaw in Windows. It can allow a hacker to put untrusted code on your PC without your knowledge. It is in the press about the flaw. The US NSA told Microsoft about it. It’s rare that they did that so it must be pretty bad.

Hey Otto,

Welcome…I’ll get with you later tonight and pass along the login / password so you can assist in being another admin on the Group site.

 

FYI…I’ve heard from RootsWeb and they were able to make me admin over there so I could download the email list of our BK RootsWeb members and once I download that list I will have to upload to the NEW Brother’s Keeper Genealogy Group so everyone will be on the same list. That old list has 447 in it.

 

Will talk to ya later…thanks, Terry

Not if it was a newsgroup (at least, there are free newsservers, or those who use NIN pay the vast amount of ten euros a year); I still think a newsgroup would be a better solution.

It would be helpful if _all_ children, at least, of a person showed - maybe greyed or in some similar way for the ones by the not-currently-selected spouse. (Similarly for pictures, and I guess media.) I understand (a) that something similar has already recently been added for siblings, and (b) changing the colour of text (including greying) is difficult (or impossible) with the current old graphic engine, but I'll ask for it anyway ...

Hi,
I totally disagree, usually the first spouse is of the most interest I

I think it would be beneficial if the listing of multiple spouses on the

in most cases the last spouse is the one of greatest interest. I know the

over twenty or so from the 1st to the 2nd, or 3rd. Just a suggestion to
make life a little easier.
[]
I don't disagree as vehemently as Robert, but I do disagree: I've got plenty of cases where either a man remarried because he needed someone to look after a brood after his wife had died (probably often in childbirth or as a result of complications arising therefrom), or because he desired companionship (and possibly care) in old age. (Sorry, it _is_ mostly man. Though woman needing father to provide for her brood after first husband has died young is also not uncommon.)

This all assumes you consider "most important" to equate to "with whom most children were had". (I did wonder about suggesting _that_ as the default, but decided that would cause confusion too.)

What I think would be a lot _more_ useful would be for BK to add the which-spouse to the back/forward list. I'm frequently in the situation where I'm looking at someone with the not-first spouse shown, then I go to one of their children or the spouse in question, then hit the back (<) button, and wonder (e. g.) where the children have gone! (Or pictures [the "couple/family" ones], if that's the tab I had open when I clicked on <.)
