It's not clear to me what you mean by notes?
Regarding Marriages in the proper order, what you are doing works
but it is OK to leave date estimates in place using ABT, BEF, AFT etc.,
At one time there were comments in FTM documentation that a
blank date means it hasn't happened yet and a date estimate makes
research easier when you are trying to figure out if you have the right
person. The Error report reports all "Missing" dates and I try to provide
estimates for every date including deaths if over 100 years from birth.
In "facts" the same fact name repeated is arrainged in date sequence if
the earliest one is the prefered fact.
