During the beta test for Ancestry sharing, I noticed that I was born after my father's death and my father was 297 years old when I was born. I was born in 1939 and my father in 1918. Replacing dates did not solve the issue.
No other issues were apparent until recently. Captain Timothy Phelps (1697-1788) is my second cousin 8 times removed. His daughter Grace Phelps (1728-1824) is said to be my Grandneice. It goes on from there. These folks are not my niece or nephews but they are my cousins. It seems that Sarah Cooper (1642-1726) is my mother. How to I find the problem and fix it?

In the upper left corner of the program is the information area. Look for the parent row and see if you have more than one set of parents. If so select the wrong set for you. Then in the Family View right click on yourself and select Unlink>From Parents.
