Although my husband and I are home family of my Reunion database, my mother is listed as the "source" for determining relationships. When I look at my grandparent on my mothers side of the family, they are listed as mother and father. When I look at my grandparents on my fathers side of the family, no relationship is shown. How can I transfer the source of the relationships to me?

Thanks,
Nancy

Go to your card.
Select from the menus: "Find" -> "Relatives...". A window, "Relatives" will open.
Select the radio button by your name
Click the "Identify" button.
Let Reunion think a bit.
Close the Window.

Now you're the new source person, and will stay that way till you change it.

Hi Dennis,

Thanks for your suggestion, but I found that same answer in the manual and there is no field of "relatives" listed in the find file. I decided to mess with it some more and what I did was double click on my mothers source connection as the source, I cleared her connection. I then put myself in as the source and this worked.
