I have in my father side of the family two couples that were actually first cousins. When I try to make the connection the system just creates a segund record of the same person and does not allow the connection.
Do I have to enter the set of parents again on to be able to continue with the tree building.
Can you please help if you have already gone through this same situation
Cousins will not connected together, because Cousins are definied through the blood line. For instance, me and my siblings are cousins of the children of the sister of my father. In the tree structure with my siblings, I'm connected to my parents. My Cousins are connected to their parents. That's all.
Of course the picture is a bit different, if two named cousins are married together. Then You have a connection between this two persons.
Ok that seems to be what I got but I was not aware tha is the way this structure would work. The connection I am trying to make is not that complicated and I thought the prgram would handle it in terms of displaying the connection as a regular one.
I am going to try it again and see if I can get it the way you explain. It is not visibly nice to have the same person twice on the structure but it is what it is. It is not intuitive to someone who does not understand what is behind the creation of the event.
I appreciate your help - thank you for replying so promptly and so clearly.
