Adding a New Person in Ancestral Sources

Introduction

If while using Ancestral Sources to add a data entry you find it refers to a person who you want to be part of your GEDCOM file, but is not currently recorded, then you can add them directly in Ancestral Sources.

Details

On each of the main data entry screens there are Add Parent, Add Spouse, Add Sibling, and Add Child links on the right-hand side that let you add relations. See the Ancestral Sources Tutorial ~ Enter Census ~ (3) Populate the Census Grid tutorial for an example.

Some screens also allow the name of new relation to be entered directly into a name box. See the Ancestral Sources Tutorial ~ Enter Baptism ~ (1) Enter Baptism Information tutorial for an example.

There is also an Ancestral Sources Tutorial ~ Working With Tools ~ (1) Unrelated Individuals option for completely unrelated individuals.
