Hi Dawn,

Most adoptee's on here tend to do two tree's saves any confusion.
Me. I have enough trouble with my own tree with out taking on my Birth family one as well ;O)

Good Luck!

You could( not sure if able) make your parents a mix of both sets ( wife and husband of opposite couples) then give each a new partner ( the remaining 2 ) But there real partner..I think.
Worth a try..not sure it will work....but
That way there will be 2 couples..but in the right set...understand?
I hope

Husband 1with Wife 2 then add Husband 2 as new partner to Wife 2, then add Wife 1 to Husband 1 as new partner. That way they should be together the right way

If it works....

Hi Kitty, Arch :) ~~

With my family tree, have managed to add half-siblings, new wife/new husbands for my father and mother ... hope that makes sense. xx

don't know if its posible but can you add a second wife then a second husband, just a thought.


Dawn Report 6 Aug 2008 12:36

bugger i didnt want to have to do it that way tho as it then separates the current family from the rest

I think a second tree is the only way to do can have a free account using a seperate e-mail address.

thanks for the welcome, i have only been on here for a few days now but im making huge progress on this ancestors thing!!! but without being able to do this family line online im going to struggle i think, need to make links to get much further as i have managed to get back as far as 1833 in 5 days!!! im just waiting on the first of many certificates as proof!!!

i have sent the admin on here the question too but thought i should ask directly but i can see them wanting another subscription fee and me starting over with the birth line of family to be honest
