I just noticed odd behavior in the name sort function for the WikiTree Family List.
When using either the default sort of Last Name at Birth or the secondary sort of Current Last Name, people are grouped together by last name, but there is no apparent logic for their sequence within that last name. For example, here's an excerpt from a list that I see (sorted by LNAB):
- Samuel Allen III 4 Dec 1660 Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts - 28 Jun 1750 Bridgewater, Plymouth, Massachusetts
- Mary (Allen) Low 13 Nov 1707 Gloucester, Essex County, Massachusetts - 3 May 1748 [M]
- Rebecca (Allen) Clark 26 Aug 1761 Canterbury, Connecticut - 1 Sep 1784 [M]
- Samuel Allen II 1632 England - 1703 Bridgewater, Plymouth, Massachusetts
- Mary (Allen) Abbott 25 Oct 1734 Weston, Middlesex County, Massachusetts - [M]
- Joseph Allen 2 Jun 1681 Gloucester, Essex County, Massachusetts - 6 Apr 1750 Gloucester, Essex County, Massachusetts [M]
- Isaac Allen 10 Nov 1701 Watertown, Massachusetts - 18 Sep 1767 Weston, Middlesex, Massachusetts [M]
- Barnabas Allen 22 Feb 1730 Norwich, New London, Connecticut - 10 Oct 1815 Canterbury, Windham, Connecticut [M]
- Joseph Allen 13 Oct 1653 Salisbury, Essex, Massachusetts - 6 Oct 1724 Gloucester, Essex, Massachusetts
- Joseph Allen 13 Jan 1701 Bridgewater, Plymouth, Massachusetts - 1 Jan 1777 Scotland, Windham, Connecticut [M]
Within a last name, people aren't sorted by first name, birth date, ID#, first digit of ID#, current last name, death date, gender, nor any other attribute that I can easily discern.
It's a small thing, but it would be nice if there were some kind of logical secondary sort (for a sort by last name, it would be logical for first name to be the secondary sort key) built into the list function.
