Ancestral Sources Tutorial ~ Enter Marriage ~ (3) Enter Parent Details


The marriage transcript gives details of the father of both the bride and groom.

Parent Details

Ensure that the Parents tab is selected.

Ensure that Ind. Father is ticked, and that Childs, Rupert is selected in the panel on the right, then use the Add Parent… link on the right to enter the groom’s father’s Name as Norman Childs with Gender of Male.

Enter the Individual’s Father’s Occupation as Joiner.

The bride’s father was already known, so Ancestral Sources has completed the entry.

Enter the Spouse’s Father’s Occupation as Farmer.

The ticked entries will be included in the Auto Text as a transcript of the marriage record.

Sometimes the mother of the bride or groom may also be found on marriage records.
