I see his name and your mom's name on your list but they are not linked to each other. Not sure if that is what you mean.

To link these people - go to any one of them, across the top of the profile, click the tab that says EDIT.

Once you get that screen - you will see links to

add/remove/edit  Spouses  or add/edit/remove Children or parents etc.

For example:  If you open Randolph, click edit,  choose add spouse.

Enter Berniece's information on the page that comes up.  At the very bottom you may get a message that says Randolph is also the father of Kathy x.  Check that box.

Hit save.

You should then get a screen that has 'matches' to Berniece.  Check the one that you already entered and that will link them together.

Always look for the SAVE button - when I was learning, I sometimes forgot to click that too, and had to do it all over again!.
