A person apprears as my wife although she is not!

Hi, when viewing the mother of my eldest child she appears as my wife, but she is not.

Please advice how I can correct the connection between her and me.

Thanks

Olle

Under "edit profile," go under "family" which is the second choice under the menu at the right. It gives you the option of changing that status.

This feature solves some of the problems (thanks for pointing it out), but not all.

 If a child is born to a single mother, that child gets associated (drawn in the tree) as a child of that person only, which is exactly right.  However, when that woman later marries, her single-parent child from earlier times gets automatically moved to being drawn as a child of her new husband as well. I have not been able to figure out a way to avoid this so far.

The same happens when a husband dies and his widow later gives birth to a child out of wedlock.  Unless I introduce a new person "unknown father" to the tree, I cannot prevent that child from being attributed to the already dead former husband.

Hi François,

 

The tree data is saved using family structures,

so each child belongs to some family.

Wha you can do, is create a temporary parent,

add the child (or disconnec trom his parent and connect to the couple if he already exists) 

and then delete the temporary individual.

Yep, that did the trick.  Thanks for the hint.

How does that help if you know the father of the child of the single mother and want to note that but don't want him to appear as the husband?  I mark them as friends or partners but when I print out the reports it lists him as a husband when the parties had never married.

Hi Donna,

If you are reffering to the Book report,

Try to install this version :

It should fixe the problem.
