Topics I've Started

name change

07 March 2018 - 05:27 AM

I would like to do a name change for an adoption.  If I put in birth name then do a name change to adopted name, at child's marriage the name is still birth name when it should be new name.  If I put in new name it is wrong name at birth.  Also on fact screen for sentence it says [N] and I am not sure where to put new name; tried note and it doesn't seem to work.  Since I have birth parents and birth date inserted and have marriage and all child's children, I need name to change as of a certain date.



adopted child

06 March 2018 - 07:50 AM

I have a woman who married and had child and divorced.  She then married again and new husband adopted her child and they then had 2 more children.  I had put in child with parents and then added adopted father.  I did not put in mother as she was already listed as his mother I thought.  I ended up with unknown as a mother and adopted father as having 2 wives one being unknown. I eventually eliminated unknown after several tries.  I have the mother now listed as having 2 husbands and 1 child by first and 3 children by the second who is adopted father of one child.  So there is duplication of child which I suppose is correct as child was  actually part of 2 families.  On child's timeline child is listed as having 2 sets of parents. Is this correct and will it be correct in reports?  Or is there a better way of doing it?


Just noticed it looks as if for second marriage he is adopted by both parents and should be only adopted by father.



short footnote double bar

29 May 2017 - 04:50 AM

I have a simple question on making a double bar.  On source "book, general (authors known)" for short footnote it says to use double bar.  How do I make a double bar, I tried using the l/L key but it didn't work.  Thank you.

adding child with mother's name blank

23 May 2017 - 05:58 AM

How do I add a child with father's name only and no mother's name?  I have a will with a wife listed as Joan and 9 children listed.  Is Joan the mother of all the children or just some or just one, don't know?  If I add father as a person and then Joan as spouse, Joan is listed as mother which may or may not be correct.  If I add father and then a child then unknown is listed as mother and then if I add Joan then he is listed as having 2 spouses which may or may not be correct.  He may have had more wives.  I need to add children without listing mother.  Thank you.
