I would like to bypass and add the info myself, but haven’t been able to figure that out. I think the other software was easier to get around. FTM has always been my software, but I am getting frustrated with this upgrade. I do like the multi-screen info.

When you enter folk with this relationship you will end up with two duplicate persons.

So after you have entered them go to the edit menu>merge duplicate individuals and merge

You will have to do this twice but it works flawlessly

First check what build you have

Go to help>About FTM

The current version is 19.00.206

The CD is 19.00.180

If your version is 180 you nedd to install the update.

Go to Help>Check for updates and follow the prompts

FTM will download and install the update. Note if you are in Vista or Windows 7 you will need to do this in the administrator mode.

Not sure about your relationship question.

The new relationship calculator will find all relationships, eg you could have first cousins marrying so there would be a spouse and a first cousin relationship displayed

If you have made errors in adding people you need to correct these, usually through the Person menu attach and detach individuals.

Perhaps you could supply additional detail of your relationship issue?

FTM supports spouse, partner, friend, even unknown

Go to People>Person view and click on the reelationship tab

In the RH editing panel you will see a drop down window where you can set the appropriate relationship

On many of the family group sheets I’m getting back from relatives,I’m finding numerous instances where relatives have children by persons who are NOT their spouses. Is there any way to note “Partner” or some such designation other than “Spouse”? If so, how do I accomplish this?

When will the update be available?

I was pereparing a book for my daughter as a Christmas gift, and now many of the grandparents are showing up as uncle or aunt when they should be known as a grandparent. Is this what Scott Hill was addressing?

In addition, some of the granparents are disappearing from the computer screen as I follow the line from older to younger.

Christmas is 3 weeks away, so please tell me that this update will fix my problem and that it will be coming out by November 30th!

Now, can you fix the problem with not having a double enrty when brother and sister marry brother and sister from another family?
