Incorrect relationship

Post by JennyG » 26 Jun 2020 15:57

I have returned to FH after rather a long gap. I have entered a census record but when I checked the tree I found I had entered 3 children as 3 brothers of their father. How do I correct this please?

In the Focus Window make the grandfather of those 3 people the focus person so the '3 brothers' and their father are shown as the children.

Right-click each of the '3 brothers' in turn and choose Unlink Record.

Now make their father the focus person and use Add Child > Link Existing Record to add the 3 children you just unlinked.

See Knowledge Base > Removing Unwanted Relations for background advice.
