Adding existing spouse

Recommended Posts

Merry Christmas.


I entered a new female ancestor who was married to an existing male record. When I enter the spouses name in the 'add Husband' screen, I get the prompt of a matching record and end up pulling the pick list with the husband's name.


However, I cannot select that record to add as her spouse and I cannot figure out another method to add him.


How can I add and existing record to a new person as a spouse?




(Yes, I am actually doing genealogy on Christmas Day.)

You don't need to "Add" the husband because he is already in your Project.


Instead just add a Marriage Tag to link the two people together. You can start with either one and add the other as the second Principal.
