Linking new people to existing people


I have a GED file I imported and the ivsualization is good, but the relationship to a previous husband did not come through. I tried to link the people manually and the system is not linking to an existing person.

Linking existing people is necessary. For example, in few generation cousins decide to marry, and they are in the tree already.

Ultimately, we wanted to allow linking by creating and moving the connector lines around, but we did not have time to implement. That would make the application more useful from a genealogy point of view.

Would love to see the addition of cousins. In fact, what would be even better would be a pointer to where in the code enterprising WPF developers could/should look, and maybe brief thoughts about how to go about it ;)

From Brother keeper i have imported GEDCOM in Family Show. This cause some relationships breaks and now i am unable to link these relationships with forefathers. They exists in the database as unlinked separate family and there is no option in family show to link them each other. Finally i would like to say that this program is excellent and have remarkable features.

Open the .family file and add the relationships (to both sides of the equation) manually.

This is a very nice tool, it looks good and it is easy to get an overview of large trees...

However, sometimes people are disconnected from the tree and floats around somewhere. They are in the list of persons but they are not part of the tree, actually, entire subtrees can get disconnected and I cannot reconnect them again withou manually editing the .familiy file, which is extreemely cumbersome.

This feature would, at least make it possible to reconnect the persons though it will not solve the bug; i.e. that people or subtrees get disconnected.

I really hope that the development of this tool continues.

Thanks, Jacob.
