@BDLackey BDLackey I think you’d just add this person as the father of the child
Open the child's details page. Go to the Family Members section. At the top of the right-hand column, click +Add Parent. If the father does not yet have a profile in Family Tree, fill in the details on the pop-up to create one. If he already has a profile, click By ID Number on the pop-up and paste in his PID.
Further to what 'X24mom' and 'Julie' have already proffered ...
Leave the "Relationship Events" as "Blank" [ ie. DO NOT add ANY 'Event" ]
"Add" COPIOUS "Notes" wherever you can, to the fact that they NEVER MARRIED; Nor, LIVED TOGETHER, if such was NOT the case.
- The "Couple Relationship" [ie. "Pop Up" ("Modal") 'Window', under "Relationship Notes" ]
For EACH individual/person
- The "Other Information" Section, under "Custom Fact"
- The "Collaborate" 'Tab', under, BOTH,
... • Notes
... • Discussions
- The "Life Sketch" ... But, that is just me ...
I prefer 'Overkill', just 'plaster' it everywhere you can; then, no one can say they did not see or notice [ But, alas, they still do ... ].
I hope this helps.
Brett, if you follow the instructions I gave, there will be no couple relationship, so it will not be possible to enter a relationship event, making leaving it blank a moot point:
