My brother was previously married and has two children by his first wife. 1st wife passed away and he has remarried. I put his children's relationship to his 2nd wife as "Step" children. But now if I click on one of the children in the Family Tab, it shows their mother as wife #2. Also, in the Pedigree Tab it also lists wife #2 as their mother.

I have just purchased Legacy 7.5 and am waiting on the booklet. In the meantime I have started inputting some information into Legacy. I have two questions. One regarding step children. I have two children and I put the relationship between me and my children as step children but on the Family Tab screen it still shows them as my children. Is this correct?
