Setting those Relationships..

Do you struggle trying to figure out how person no. 452 is related to you?

Often it happens that you discover a new individual and are curious as to their exact relationship or one is just curious.

Ancestral Quest allows you to set your relationship to whomever you wish in your family database file.

This is done by highlighting the individual you want to set the relationship to and then going to "Tools" and scroll down and click on "Relationship Indicators":

If the root person is not the person you want, click on the 'Search' button to locate the correct person which would be the highlighted individual, put their number in the box and click OK and then click OK one more time. 

When you click that second 'OK', the programs goes through your whole family database file and re-sets the relationships to that person, the message you receive looks like this:

Click that last 'OK' and the relationships have now been set to that individual. To view them, put your file in the 'Family' view by clicking on the 'Family' tab. The relationships show above the individuals as such:

This can be done with anyone in your family database file and show just how you are related to that expected visitor!

Remember Ancestral Quest is fully FamilySearch Certified!

Comments and questions are always welcome!

Happy Ancestraling...
