I'm trying to create a gedcom of one particular family. I get the oldest person in that family, add him to the focus group, then add descendants and spouses. The focus group adds all descendants, but not spouses, and I have to go to each individual and click on "add others" to get the spouses. Does anyone know how to cure this?

The main trick to realize is that the add options only work on selected names.


So if you want to add spouses for all names, you select all names and then add spouses.


You can control who is added by working out the sequence of building the focus group.

R L,


That's why the Select All button is there. When you want to add Spouses you first click Select All to select everyone already in the Focus Group, then use the Add Others feature.
