hmm..I responded to this twice last night, but the still don't appear?

I just got the book a few days ago and I seem to do everything differently. The way I been entering it is to "add a child". To that child, I add a fact "marriage", then I add the spouses name. The spouse name won't appear in the index until I add a child. Also, if I was to add a child to that couple, I have to go to the "descendants" tab and then the "family" tab. This really seems like an awkward way of doing things.

Thanks for the replies. I think I might join them because there are actually two branches related as one of my grandparents brother and sister also married!

I'll look for the Explorer view. I have ordered the book, but haven't received it yet.

Thanks again.

Thanks Laura,

I think I have most of it done. I had to delete her as a person and started over. I couldn't find "No marriage known", so I just typed in "unknown" in the date field. I then changed both the men to "Partner". However, I cannot figure out how to link the children. Do I have to put the separation in first? I don't know if this will affect the dates or not but the separation occurred before the baby was born.

Another question if that is okay. I noticed that to edit information on a person (e.g. I just added a child's name and I want to add information to that child) I have to click on the descendants tab and then family before I can enter the information. I thought I should be able to double-click on the child's name and add to her tree. Is there an easier way?
