@catherinemurray, on your grandmother's person/detail page go down to the "Family Members" section and click "+Add Spouse" and add one of her husbands
Then use the same method as above and add the second husband.
Now under the Family Members" go to one set of Parents click "+Add Child" and add a child to that couple. Repeat the process until all the children are added for that couple.
Then go to the other married couple and under them click "+Add Child" and add all their children.2
You can see an example here, in my family. My great grandparents were each married and widowed before they married each other. Link to my great grandfather's profile: https://www.familysearch.org/tree/person/details/9J27-DJS
If you are adding censuses to the family later, watch carefully to keep from attaching children to the previous or future spouse.
You can also select one couple as "preferred" to show your line.4
Thank you everyone
I have another question
""on the request link Effective Ordinances" I want to request a specific date but it appears to just give me todays date....how do I request a later date in August 20220

@catherinemurray , I may not be understanding your question but I can tell you that you should post any concern about "ordinances" into the "Temple Category" section. It sounds like you may be talking about your Reservations list? If so, you Reserve the Ordinance then you do them at any date you desire within certain time limits. In any event the General Questions for this Family Tree Community is not where you want to post this question but rather put it in the Temple Category and someone will be able to drill down into your issue and get it resolved.1
