thanks so much
At the bottom right of every Family View page are 3 boxes with the letters "H", "M", "W" followed by a number, these are the husband's RIN, MRIN and wife's RIN respectively. Go to the view for the parents to whom you wish to link the children.and make a note of the MRIN.
Now unlink the first child from the current parents and link to existing parents using the MRIN to identify them. Repeat for each child.
Firstly: As a rule NEVER delete someone to remove them from a family group. You should un-link them. Deleting removes the person from the family file, unlinking keeps the person in the file but removes their name from the current family. You will then be able to link the person to the correct family.
You will find many hints and tips on using Legacy on this page: http://www.LegacyFamilyTree.com/Tips.asp There is an article there on fixing several kinds of relationship errors like yours.
Hi, I have a problem that I don't know how to solve. I have children born to one set of parents and have followed these children through with their wives and their children. Now I have found that their Father was married twice and I have the wrong Mother for some of the children, they were from a previous marriage. How can I add them to his other wife and delete them from the 2nd wife. I tried linking them to the 1st wife and deleted them from the 2nd but wiped all the family out of my tree.
Hey Jude, there are slight differences. You are correct in the use of the Delete key - it will simply delete the selected text. While Ctrl+X is actually the Cut command. This will cut the selected text AND hold it in memory [the Clipboard]. That way you can now go to another location and Paste that text.
I can't think of a place where it doesn't work. Another good one is CTRL-X for deleting selected text. But so does the delete button.
How about that! I've used that lots before but never tried it into the Legacy program.
Always between various Windows parts of the OS.
CTRL-C puts selected text on the clipboard
CTRL-V puts the clipboard text at the position that your cursor is sitting
Is there any way to "copy and paste" from the XP clipboard to the notes in Legacy?
Sure would make entering info I already have in a .txt file into the notes.
Horay! It worked. Thanks
