Unusual marriage causes duplicate entry.

I have a problem with a deceased relative who appears to have married the brother of her first husband (!!!)

The only way I have been able to connect her to both is to create a manual connection to the second brother / husband but this then creates two cards for her.

Is there a way to resolve this?

I got stuck in a loop like this the first time I found it myself...

As Baba says, the red "2x" indicates there are 2 trees for the individual, but for logical reasons, they can't be displayed on the same page, thus it's flagged.

If you change the person's NAME from "Person Name" to "xx Person Name", then search for "xx Person Name", you should get only one result, which should satisfy you that there is only one.

Hi Stewart,

If You connect an existing person to another existing person, and both persons (in Your tree the two brothers) connects to the same wife, the system displays this wife twice, but with a red 2x marker.

This means only, this person is viewable on the same screen (point of vie in the tree) on two (or more) different position. The profile exists only one time. 

Hope this helps.

Best regards

Hi Remo,

I had a similar problem where a man married his ex-wife's stepdaughter, i.e. his ex-stepdaughter. The system couldn't accept this as a connection and apparently generated 2x the man and his ancestors. Are you saying it appears to duplicate the profile but hasn't really done so? Even though you can get a view with the two trees visible?

Regards,

Peter

Hi Peter,

I'm not sure to understand Your question correctly.

If You connect this (ex-)stepdaughter to his (ex-)stepfather as a partner (with the specified partnership) You will see, depending on the point of view in Your tree, a couple red 2x markers on the specific persons.

This marked persons exists (profile specific) 1x in Your tree. The viewdisplay of the family tree supports only direct lines from one person to another. The reason of the red 2x markers is, that crosslines are not supported and are not helpful for a propper view.

I tried this constellation in my little sample-tree and it works fine.

Hope it helps, if not feel free to ask.

Best regards
