    Adding a Child to Parents and Adoptive Parents

    Mary is born to Jack and Jill and is added in their Family View
    Mary is then adopted by John and Jane.
    How do I add Mary to John and Jane Family View but still keep her with Jack and Jill?

    Open the file for Mary. On the right, over her name, is a great big plus sign. Click on that for a pop-up list to add new father and new mother. You can do this two ways - by adding "new", or further down on the pop-up list there is an option to "add using search" - if the second set of parents is already in your file, use search and add.
    When you are done, if you want to check to ensure there ARE two sets of parents. In Mary's name box in the top right corner - click on the check mark and choose "Parents" there should be two sets of parents showing. Use this pop-up to navigate between the two. You can also click on Mary's status as a child of adopted parents and choose "adopted". This will not show on her birth parents. Who said genealogy was easy?
