Changing connections

This section could also be titled “Changing relationships”.

Every person is identified by an ID number assigned automatically. If you need to change the identity of a person’s Father or Mother, do this by using a different ID. Using this technique it is possible to move a person to an entirely different branch of the family tree. Please be careful.

Here’s your chance to make a correction or create a serious problem.

In this example we’ll assume that the father is already in the database but is not ID=1.

Let’s change the father to be the person whose ID is 32

Saving at this point would create a big mistake where the father and the mother are the same person. But you can see the power at your disposal.
