Family Records

Calico Pie Help File

Family records store information about families, and store links to all the Individuals who make up the family. You can view and edit Family records in the Property Box Dialogue.

It is not necessary to create Family Records directly. Family Historian will automatically create Family Records for you when they are needed. You rarely even need to look directly at Family Records in the Property Box. You can see Family record Notes, for example, in the Notes tab when viewing the Individual records (in the Property Box) for either of the spouses/parents of the family. Similarly, you can see Family record events and attributes in the Facts tab when viewing the Individual records (in the Property Box Dialogue) for either of the spouses/parents of the family.

Notes

Each Individual Record can have an unlimited number of family as spouse and family as child links to Family records.

In practice though one person usually has only a single family as child and Family Historian uses the more advanced Property Box Dialogue: Individuals: All Tab to manipulate multiple family as child links, that typically apply when adoptive or foster parents are involved.
