Kids related to wrong mother

- Close

I have a father who was married 3 times. In the tree all of the 10 kids are listed as being born to one of the wives. How can I change it that the kids are all under the correct mother.

 I saw one post that said you need to delete the person.. this person is quite far up the tree and I don't know what happens to everything below if they are deleted.

I puposely related someone to wrong mother just to get them to show on the tree, but in the notes listed the correct mother's name as much as i know of it.  I also put the parents relationship as unknown in this case as one is deceased aand I have not yet double verified the wives or partners or friends .I would not delete anyone til youknow hat that does to the rest of the tree.  To link to the corect parent the previous post is correct that all the parents must be there in relation to the father in your case, then link the children by editing the children is how I did it.

Is it possible to change that online or do you have to do it with the offline program?

 Everyone is in the tree, but I don't see (online) how to link a child to a different parent.

I did it in the program that lets you, as the site manager, build your family tree.  Each person gives you options to privitize the person, edit the person, etc.  I played with the options until I found what worked for me.
