This is the third post in the series about using genealogy software named Branches. Previous posts in the series include:
* The first post demonstrated navigating around a database uploaded from a GEDCOM file.
* The second post demonstrated adding an unrelated person to the database (similar to starting a brand new database).
In this post, I am going to work through adding a spouse, children and parents to a person in the database.
In the last post, I added an unrelated person to the database, added birth and death information, and created a source citation for the 1930 census. From the family tree screen, I right-clicked on the person's name to obtain the "Individual Options" menu box, and selected "Add a Spouse:"
The "Add Spouse" menu box opened, and I added the spouse's name, the marriage date and marriage place:
Note that in the marriage place field that the type-ahead feature added the place name after I typed several letters.
At this point, I wanted to add children to the family of Johnson and Lucretia (Jones) Seaver - Herkimer's brothers and sisters. This was a large family of seven children. How can I add these other six children and their birth, death and marriage information?
When I tried to do this, a little "stick-man" icon showed on the screen and nothing happened. After several minutes, I finally clicked on the "stick-man" icon and canceled the action.
