Hi Carman. Generally speaking, you can edit relationships in the right hand column of the Edit window of a profile. For example, you can add/remove child or add/remove spouse. When you click on one of these links, a new window will open. Usually at the bottom of that window is a section to remove a relative.

If you would like to comment here with more details of the correction you need to make, we can try to give more specific help.

Relationship changes, especially removing one, should only be done by adding sources to the profiles to prove that there is a different relationship or why that relationship is incorrect. Changing relationships with a source, other than a family tree of some sort, is the recommended way, but communication is also important. Adding research notes to affected profiles and / or comments is important.

Good advice in general, Linda! But it looks as if in this case Carman wants to correct a mistake in relationships between profiles which she created and no one else has edited. So there isn't a need for communication or research notes this time.

With no profile attached to the question, it is a general question. I don't 'assume' that someone is referring to any profile specifically, unless the profile is mentioned.

Unfortunately, a lot of new members ask this question, or don't ask and just change something on existing profiles, without leaving any explanation or sources.
