Correcting parentage of children from un-named to named father
Posted: 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.
- 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.
- 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.
