Why must I add the same person twice when trying to establish a relationship?
I clicked under my name to add one of my children. I created a person for him, added his wife and child. I look up, and the system shows me a window that has him related to MY parents, as if he were my sibling. So I removed that relationship, and went back to me. to add him as my child, again. The system did not recognize that i had already created him (and his family) as a person when I entered his name earlier under the Children heading for me.
I clicked his name in another window, and his little family tree was all there, including his relationship with his father.
Why did I have to recreate my already created son as a person to add him as my son? I had to create my paternal grandfather twice, too, first as my father's father, second time when I added him as my paternal grandmother's spouse. The system had no idea he had been created. Is that the way this works, create a new person every time you want to show a relationship?
Also, Ancestry has found all my relatives, but Family Search has not. Why is there such a discrepancy? How do I validate my relatives for Family Search?
The interface is confusing. I can now no longer find my own tree. I've been working from it for half an hour, but I can not see how to get back to it now. I can see myself in the Contributions list, but clicking my name there does nothing. Very confusing. Thanks for any help on this.
