How do I add a child to a Person or Family?
= How do I add a child to a Person or Family? =
Children are not added to a Person. Children are added to a Family.
You can add a family around a Person or add a Person as a Child (or as a Parent) to an existing family.
A Child may belong to more than one family.
However, only one Family should have a "Birth" relationship of a child to both Parents. The others families would be "non-traditional" relationships. The relationship to at least one of the parents would be Adopted, Stepchild, Foster, Sponsored, None or perhaps a custom relationship.
You can Add a child:
* [[#Adding a child from the Relationship View|From the Relationship View]]
** [[#Adding the Active Person as a Child in a family|To Parents]]
** [[#Adding a Person as a Child of the Active Person|As Offspring]]
* [[#Adding a child from the Family View |From the Family View]]
* [[#Adding a child from the Person View|From the Person View]]
* [[#Adding a child from the Charts View |From the Charts View]]
* From add-ons:
** From the [[Addon:ImportGramplet|Import Text gramplet]]
** From the [[Addon:DataEntryGramplet#Usage|Data Entry gramplet]]
