Help With FTM
Good Evening all. I am trying to do a FTM genealogy report to go along with the chart that I want to take to my family reunion. How do I list a stepfather? When I give the name of a husband, who later married the mother of the children, the children are listed as his (which could cause a problem, cause in a couple of cases, the husband was not well liked (to put it mildly) and is now divorced from his former stepchildren's mother). Mostly I am only interested in Direct descendants, but feel I must acknowledge husbands, some of them do share children with the mother. FTM's help does not help me. I have tried it several ways. I only have a couple of days to wrap this up; this will be a first (and there will be conscientious objectors to my digging looking for a cause to rip into the findings), and the first reunion of the family in more than ten years, so I'd like to get it as close to right as possible. Thanks for any guidance you may give me.
