just trying to clarify one thing:
You keep referring to 'witness tags'. There is no such thing unless you use
a custom tag called Witness.
The tags are the tags for the event for the principal(s).
For example the Marriage tag for the bride and groom, which then can have
Witnesses to their marriage.
For those Witnesses, depending on your choices in the Tag Type Definitions
Screen for Marriage tags, the Marriage tag may show as 'Witness' in the Tag
Type column of their Person Views, but it is still the same 'Marriage tag'
of the bride and groom which this person witnessed, not a separate 'Witness
Hope I could make the difference clear?
