What’s the best way to ‘remove‘ a person from a family?
Usually, unless a duplicate, you don’t want to ‘delete’ the person, but rather simply reassign them to the proper family. The best way to “remove” a person from a family record is to navigate to that family record involved and use the CHANGE FAMILY MEMBERS tool.
You can also use this same tool to add or change spouses.
It’s a duplicate. Is it ok to use it for another person (totally unrelated) to avoid ‘delete’?
Since this person is a duplicate, it’s better to delete. That’s a lot less work than if you were to change the person’s detailed information and then unlink that person from one family and link to another.
You would use the “unlink and link elsewhere” sequence when the person’s information had been entered correctly but was then attached to the wrong family. That way, you would avoid having to enter all of the person’s information a second time.
You need to remember that some information in the database belongs to individuals and other information belongs to families. For instance, birth, death, occupation, and residence as well as name information is part of an individual’s details. Marriage, divorce, and the list of who’s in the family all belong to the family’s details.

Unknowns mothersPosted: March 30, 2012 Filed under: Action Leave a comment »
Which is the correct way to enter when moms were unknown in Close Relatives:
– add a child to create a single parent family, OR
– add brother?
If you can not confirm, or even suspect with a preponderance of evidence, that the mother was the same, then you should record each child in a separate family and merge later if/when you do confirm the data.
