In a family group the same child listed twice. If I try to delete one of the listings of the child, both will be deleted. When I view the child's information, the same parents are listed twice.

I was updating some information for this child, so it's an operator error.

Any suggestions how I have the child listed only once on the family group. Do I have delete the child and enter the information again.

Thanks for any help.

John

If the double children share the same RIN and the double parents have matching RINs, then the persons exist only once in the database and have been linked twice. You just need to remove the redundant parent-child links.
