If I have cousins marrying and/or 2 siblings marrying 2 siblings from another family, I end up with a relation having 2 entries on my family tree.
If I end up then finding further information on this relative I then used to update both entries. Is this still the case, as I find that I can forget to update one if them?
If you enter information does is it automatically update both entries?

It only updates the data you have on your screen so you would need to call up the other entry and update that too
