Divorced parents
« on: August 06, 2022, 07:17:02 »
Hello,
I’m new and have started my family tree. I’m struggling on how to handle divorced parents who remarried and had children. How do I separate my half brothers and sisters? Thank you very much.

Hi and welcome,

You need to create a family entity for each union.
In this case, F1 would have the first couple and children. You would add a MARR event and a DIV event to this first family.
Then for the parent who remarries, you create for him/her another family, F2. And you attach the spouse and the other children to this family F2.

I hope that clarifies.

Best regards,
Frederic
