    Best way to notate a child when parents were not married?

    I have a woman in my Tree that had a child when she was unmarried, then later married a man (who was not the father of the first child) and had two additional children with her husband. How do I add the first (illegitimate) child to her family, since she was not married at the time the child was born. When I try to add the husband, Reunion assumes he is her second husband, which he isn't.

    Easy, just add the 1st father, but change the marriage to 'unmarried'.
    If the 2nd father adopted the 1st child, add that, using existing child, to 2nd father, and change status to 'adopted'.

      The order of husband's can be changed once you have added the first after the second ...
      Click on the red down arrow at top right of wife's name box;
      From the drop down select "Spouses & children";
      Scroll down to "Edit Spouses ...";
      In the new window drag 1st husband above 2nd husband;
      While 1st husband is selected, click on "> Go";
      Add the child.
      Job done.
