Found error in GEDCOM upload narrative conversion

0 votes
I love how the GEDCOM upload process propagates narrative. However, I found an error in how it displays the parents of a given person IN THE NARRATIVE. See as an example

When the tool generates narrative for the marriage it first lists the spouse and marriage date and place, and then it repeats "husband and wife" and then lists and links to the PARENTS of the profile person.

Seems like a) the parents should be removed from the marriage section, and b) given an appropriate subheader of Parents.

Hi Jillaine,

I know what you mean. This does need to be improved.

What it's doing is attempting to preserve any information in the GEDCOM so nothing is lost. The "FAM" information in a file could be from where the individual is a child or parent in the family. We don't currently distinguish when we're salvaging the info.

Thanks for the explanation. Better to have misplaced data from a GEDCOM than lose the data altogether. I'm slowly editing these out.
