Georgina, You can record your ancestor's occupation if you click on Edit for that individual and scroll down the screen. I would like to see some way of showing whether children were illegitimate or step children. Like lots of people, I have ancestors who married widows or widowers who already had children. I'm finding it impossible to record some families accurately so I'm showing info in the Notes section. Time consuming though! Well that's my moan for the day over!
