Two partners have a longterm non-marital relationship (with a child) but are getting married at a late stage in their life. I can either record their marriage, OR record their non-marital relationship as 'partners'. Their seems to be no way to record two different relationships between the same two people chronologically.... Or am I missing somethign?
Do you use Family Tree Builder? If you do then it's not a problem at all.
You should edit the person you would like (in your case it's you...) by choosing Edit-->Spouses-->Add spouse
Then you can set also the appropriate relation.
You can later modify it by choosing to edit the "family" status by selecting Edit-->Family and selecting the required relationship.
If you would like to change the father of any of your children, then you should edit the children info by selecting Edit-->Parents-->Replace parents and then select the right couple.
I have no experience with Family Pages so will not be able to help you if you built your site online.
Esther ! Thank you for your response. This is what is needed: DELETE name of John Douglas "Doug" Gadd as a Site Member. REPLACE him with his wife. Her details are: Lynette Mavis "Lyn" Gadd (born Stewart). She is Female. Born 1947 at Warracknabeal, Victoria. To me, she is my cousin's daughter. She is the daughter of George Arthur Alexander Simpson Stewart & Elsie Irene "Irene" Stewart b.Hicks. Their e-mail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org Mine is: email@example.com
Would you also DELETE: Leonie Milnes as a Site Member. (She is another that we had e-mail trouble with). She is the same person as Leonie Hicks. That is her maiden name, and she uses it as her official name. PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! Tell either me or Wendy Hicks [Site Manager] how to delete a site member. Despite what others might say, it can't be done through SITE MEMBERS > MORE. There are only one or two options after that, and neither mention deleting anything. I don't think that I can go through this again. Add to it the question of apparently-faulty e-mails, and this 80-year-old is more than ready to throw up his hands and cry 'That's it! I'm out of here' .
I think you can only avoid this in Family tree Builder. Their seems to be no way in MyHeritage to avoid this. If you use FTB, you can later publish or export to MyHeritage and the maiden name will then be preserved.
Come back here if you eed more advise
My mother and father were never married but I somehow have my mother with my father's name and her "maiden" name in parentheses. I can't figure out how to fix this. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I have made mistakes in connecting a father & son, a set of parents to their child and using the "delete" option!....If I delete a spouse because I inserted the spouse in the wrong order of many marriages, will this completely delete just this particular person forever? In my family tree using the free MyHeritage site I can not find the suggested word >"manage" ....to fix my mistakes.... I see the word, "edit," but not "spouse" or "manage".... Is the suggestion 'to go to the manage site' available in MyHeritage or just in the Family Builder site? I am really enjoying this site! Thank you .....
I have a Mac so I only use the website tools. But I cannot seem to figure out how to add middle names and AKAs to the web database.
Also, I added a tag for a person in a photo and it created a pseudo person that is a duplicate of a person in my tree. So now everytime I try to tag this person in a photo, it gives me two choices, one that is the "real" person who has a record in my tree and the "fake" one that has no association in my tree.
Il mio albero geneologico è composto da circa 200 persone e vorrei riuscire a stamparlo con le giuste proporzioni. Forse non setto nel modo giusto la sezione "creazione guidata del diagramma"?Quando stampo il file pdf, che mi viene inviato dal sito, il diagramma è solo una striscia illeggibile in un foglio A4. grazie
The site automatically shows married women with husband's last name, but not all of the women in my family do this. Is there a setting I can change? I'm willing to "divorce" my husband just to get my name to show up accurately, it's driving me nuts. I've already tried "name change" as a life event, but it still defaults to husband's last name.
