I have just started using Roots Magic. I have imported a gedcom database which has my main tree and a few unlinked trees. I have now found records which link a couple of these other tree to the main tree. How can I connect these new branches to the main tree?

In your main tree, find the person the unlinked tree should be attached to and add them as an existing person. RM will link them as you have selected (parent or child) and they will appear in your main tree.

Many thanks Bob. Will all his/her descendants be added as well?
