If your husband is living, he has to join and enter his own DNA information. If he is deceased, then you can enter it. If he is living, you can have him join, help him enter the DNA information, then he can add you as manager of his profile and not do anything else. His DNA would then populate his ancestors as you add them.

Thank you Susan for the "star"!! I hope my answer helped.
Your husband should have their own profile, and his ancestors and DNA information should be associated with that, otherwise the tools will be confused.

The husband can have his own profile but she can manage it and add his ancestors. It works just fine that way as that is what I do. My husband joined at my insistence in order to add his DNA information. I am now the manager of his profile. I am the one who has added his ancestors. There are no problems and no tools are confused.
