Correcting parentage of children from un-named to named father

Post by vbrown » 19 Nov 2020 16:42

So mother Margaret has 2 spouse tabs 1 x un-named and 1 x James. All children are under the un-named tab.
How do I move them so that James appears as their father and the u-named tab no longer exists?

There are at least two possible methods.
  1. Show Margaret as the focus person in the Focus Window where she will appear twice; once with the Children and once with James.
    Right-click each Child in turn and Unlink Record then under James & Margaret use Add Child.
    When the last Child has been moved the un-named entry with Margaret should vanish.
  2. In the Records Window on the Families tab locate the two entries for Margaret.
    Select them both by holding down the Ctrl key while clicking them.
    Use the Edit > Merge/Compare Records command to merge Margaret, James, and the Children into one Family.
