Connecting a Child
To connect a person in the Hereditree file as a Child of the Selected Individual, click the Connect Button on the Navigation screen toolbar and select the a Child menu item.
Select the person that you wish to connect by clicking on the highlighted row in the list of individuals displayed and then click the Next Button. As with the Select Screen, the grid may be filtered by Given and Last Names.
You will then be prompted to either:
Option 1. Add a New Person to the Hereditree file as the other parent of the Child; or
Option 2. Connect the other parent of the Child from the currently listed partners of the Selected Individual; or
Option 3. Select the other parent of the Child from already entered persons.
Choose the first option if the other parent is not already entered into the Hereditree file, even if no details of the other parent are known.
If the other parent is not already recorded as a partner of the Selected Individual, the Marriage Details screen will appear. Enter the marriage details (if any) and click on the Finish Button at the top right to complete the action.
Note: You may abort the process at anytime by clicking on the Cancel Button of the current screen.
