Can anyone tell me how I add half brothers and sisters. I added my mum and dad and then created two more children for my dad (i.e. my half brother and siste). Unfortunately the system has assumed that their mum is my mum also. Do I have to create my dad's previous wife and then create the children? In which case will I then be prompted to specify which of my dad's wives are their mother?
