Kevin - I believe I have found part of the problem, In trying to fix a problem. I first deleted the marriage record. This left the child in the correct family. and also deleted the marriage of the couple who in fact are married.(I had 2 males married with the same MRIN # as the male and female.Confusing? I backed up the file with the marriage deleted.I closed the file completely. I re-opened my file, called up the male of the (should be married couple)then added the spouse.It does not go back to the earliest deleted MRIN, but uses the same MRIN that was deleted on this couple.When I go ahead and add the spouse, that is fine.However, when I go to the child that was wrongly connected in the marriage, he is back married to the male again. I have a lot of these errors. Thanks for your help.
