Chose to use same person as his father and brother

17 October 2015 - 10:14 PM

As I chose ok I realized Iwas SO wrong to have okayed the RootsMagic message... about continuing to use the same John....

David's father is John. Entered details. Realised his details were for David's BROTHER John and not their father.

So now David's brother and father have the same number and details.... (oh, and two more generations above that!)

So If I remove John the father - that will remove John the son (and the other Johns)

BUT will that delete the whole family down the line????? Please help? Chris


Un-link Parents

16 October 2015 - 03:08 AM

I have inadvertently mixed up one Jane with the same number (?) with two sets of parents.

There SHOULD BE TWO Janes. One for each set of parents.

Her name is same as her father's sister... that's how I did it! AND both Jane's have as their father a William! Luckily the wives have different names!

If I go to Jane (born Edinburgh 1840): father William mother Jane/Jean - her number is the same but her details are correct.

If I go to Jane (born Australia 1842) the daughter of William and Mary - her number is the same and her details are correct 

If the numbers are the same I thought the details would have been the same... overwritten each other...

Should I create another Jane as a duplicate so I don't lose the details for either/both THEN how do I take the correct parents off lets say Jane (born in Edinburgh) BUT will that alter the other Jane?

Would love someone's help please?

Can you help? Have exported GEDCOM and when imported to another RM file, no sources were exported just the date.
