This field is used to display extra information about the family. For example, if we are unsure that all children are listed, this information should be documented.

  • A union object has two parents only. GenoPro does not enforce this rule, but will display a warning if you attempt to link three parents to the same union object. You will get the warning message "mnage trois"!
  • Always create one union object for each couple involved. Link each child to their respective parents. GenoPro uses those links to determine the siblings, half-siblings, parents and relatives.
  • An adopted child can be attached to more than one union object. Use the "Link As Child" to link the child to the families involved, then change the type of link to adopted child.
