Hi I have recently discovered that that I have two first cousins marrying each other.This of course means that they have a set of Grandparents in common. How do I present this on Familysearch ?
Welcome to the "Community.FamilySearch" Forum.
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
Short Answer: You DO NO,T have to DO; or, 'present', anything, in "Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch'.
"Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch' will AUTOMATICALLY arrange the presentation of the "Ancestral" Lines for the Couple in 'Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch'.
I hope this helps.
Brett is correct, add or attach each individual's correct parents. Then, if necessary, add or attach the grandparents. You will now see the same grandparents for the married couple when you are in the Tree Views.
If you make a comment in the reason statement as to why you have added or attached them about the first cousin relationship, then others may not make incorrect changes thinking it is a mistake.
Hopefully this helps clarify your question.
This is called pedigree collapse. It is very common in small endogamous communities: ethnic minorities especially if immigrants in a larger population, small isolated villages, etc. It does not seem to confuse anyone.
yes - it is Pedigree Collapse in a general sense - but the collapse on Family Tree - really doesnt show as "collapsed"
The pedigree still shows all lines - - -simply that there will be a couple that may show up on multiple places of your pedigree chart,
But nothing wrong with that - - it doesnt have to be confusing - it still clearly shows who is the parent of who.
My parents were 2nd cousins.
Daniel Wood and Mary Snider - ancestors of mine - appear on a pedigree chart as ancestors of both my mother and my father. but the pedigree looks just like any other (except that the couple appears twice - and from their back - the pedigree will show duplicated).
Easy done thanks I have entered a note!
Thanks Dennis I appreciate your time, along with everyone else who has responded to my query.
