A good idea, not enough initial help in constructing the tree. I thought at first that I was only allowed to put in my father and mother and then wait for the others to catch up. Now I realise that I have to click on the name of each person to add their desendants and forbears it' s easy. HOWEVER! My Mother and Father were first cousins, and although it was a shocking scandal then, it's no big deal now. How can I get the tree to realise that my mother was my father's cousin. It simply creates my mother as two sepearte people. Any suggestions?
