In Response To: Documenting Family Members ()

Lyle,

I have similar situations (a lot of them). There may be better ways, but you can type in the person's name then click on "+ Add Parents" above the name to add the biological parents.

At the bottom left corner of the section for the person's name is a small box with the word "Edit" to the left of it. Click on the box and then click on "Notes" to add information on the person and their relationships. This information will print out
with the rest of the information should you choose to make a report or book.

Have you gone to the top of your Family Tree Maker screen and clicked on "Help", scrolled down and viewed the "Getting Started Tutorial" and after viewing the tutorial clicked on "Search for Help on..." then typed in what you need help with on FTM?
