Am I The Only One Who Finds This A Clunky Program?

–3 votes
I've spent the last 45 minutes trying to do a simple thing -- unlink a person from a family. This should be a one button click. But, I now find myself trying to read between the lines, trying to see if I've missed something. The Help section says I can change relationships in the Edit fields, but there's nothing there! I don't want to be the source of bad information. I'm beginning to regret getting involved with WikiTree.

Here are the steps to remove a relationship between two people:

1) Go to the edit tab of one of the people involved.

The next part is slightly different depending on the relationship you're changing:

If removing a parent:

2) Under the Edit Family heading, click the edit link beside the parent you want to remove.

3) Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the button to remove that parent.

If removing a spouse or child:

2) Click the add/remove a spouse link or the add/edit link under the children, as the case may be.

3) Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the button to remove the spouse or child.

Siblings are connected through their parents, so those should be changed by changing or removing the parents of one of the siblings.

There's so much to learn, Bob, but it will get easier as you become familiar with how WikiTree works.

Please don't regret getting involved with WikiTree. It's a great place to build a family tree and there's a lot of help and cooperation. If you're having a problem, don't allow yourself to get frustrated. Just ask for help in G2G and do something else until you get an answer. Sometimes it may take a little longer to finish your specific task, especially on the weekends, but eventually someone will come to your aid.

Hopefully, the link included in your previous question will solve the particular problem you've been having.
