How can I enter siblings whose parents are unknown?
Applies to: TMG

Answer: In order to make people siblings, you have to define at least one of their parents. After all, TMG doesn't know what you mean by "siblings." Do you mean that they had a father in common, a mother in common, or both?

Note that it is not necessary that you know the names of the parent(s). But you do need to define (by relationships to the same parent(s)), the kind of relationship that you are trying to record between the children.

So add a father and/or mother--whatever seems appropriate based on the evidence--and assign the same parent(s) to both children. When defining the parent(s), record the surname as "Unknown" or something similar.
