Setting the Home Person

Ever want to change the "Home" person in your Family File? This is not a difficult thing to do and is accomplished with a few clicks in Ancestral Quest.

First you determine who you want in the #1 position, it doesn't matter what their RIN number is to be there, just write that number down or remember it.

Go to "Tools" and scroll down to "Preferences" like this:

Once you have clicked on the "Preferences" you'll need to go to the "Database Tab", note that the default tab is "General" so when you open preferences it will go to the General Tab.

We have circled the area where you put the RIN number of the person you want in that "Home" position. Once you enter that number, click on "OK".

That's it, now that person will be in the main position when you click on the "Home" Icon at the top of the program.

As long as you use the Icon you'll be able to get to the 'Home' person in the Pedigree or the Family View.

Remember Ancestral Quest is fully FamilySearch Certified!

Comments and questions are always welcome!

Happy Ancestraling...
