Add section describing how to add twins
If you wish to add a child to a new family (a family that does not yet exist in the database), click on the {{man button|Add}} button on the toolbar. This will bring up an Edit Family form. On this form, you may add parents and children.
= How do I add twins/triplets/etc? =
When you look at the list of children in a family, those with the same birthdate are obviously twins. But if you don't know the birthdate, or only know the year, you need some other way to indicate the relationship. You can do this by having them share a single birth event.
Take for example, the twins Thomas and Peter. When you create the Birth event for Thomas, make the Description say "Birth of Thomas and Peter". Then add a reference to that same event to Peter's event list, either by drag and drop, or by using the "Share an existing event" button. Set the Role for that event for both people to "Primary".
Now when you view the event list for either Thomas or Peter, you will see the Description reminding you that they are twins. And as you add details such as birth date to the birth event for either of them, those details will automatically display for the other as well.
