Re: Listing Family by Multiple Spouses?
In Response To: Listing Family by Multiple Spouses? ()
I use Family Tree Maker, but I imagine that all genealogy software allows for multiple marriage and allows you to show what children belong to what spouse.
My father is the youngest child of his father's 3rd marriage AND of his mother's 3rd marriage. Each of them had children by their two previous spouses, and all of them are kin to my dad. He had two sets of half-siblings on grandpa's side, two sets of half-siblings on grandma's side, and a set of whole siblings from the two of them.
So showing Grandpa's descendants will show one group of children, Grandma's descendants will show a different set of children, with the last batch of 4 children showing on both charts.
