Changing mother or father - how?
Julia Vortman
- Close
I created a tree, and noticed the following situation: a person named Maria has two siblings.  Both siblings have children and grandchildren, with all the available data entered.  However, these two siblings in reality are Maria's children, and a mistake was made when creating the tree by adding them as siblings rather than children.  Now, what I want is to move the siblings and their families in such a way that Maria shows up as their mother.  How do I do that?  I really do not want to delete their family details and add them again under Maria's family....  I hope my question makes sense.  Thanks!

Hi Julia,

Your questions makes perfect sense!

However, the online family tree editor doesn't have a function that will allow you to "cut and paste" people from one place to another just yet.

Unfortunately, you will either have to delete all the ancestors OR make the fix in our family tree software and then upload the tree back to your family site.

Here is an FAQ with more information how to do that: I put someone in the wrong place on my online tree. What should I do?
