well what I'm looking at I think I may have had two names for the same wife but had her listed twice, so I got rid of the one wife that did not have her parents or children or even husband listed. so will wait to see what is what.

 

So now  under William Fookes Fookes-89, I am showing a list of his children, but when I click onto his spouse Maria Josephine (Cregoe) Fookes  ,  im only showing my great-grandmother Cornelia Caroline Fookes so how do I show that Maria is the mother of  all the children also?

Deborah,

If you type "Cregoe" into the search box, it will bring up a list of the profiles that have that surname.  Right now there are three Maria Josephine (Cregoe) Fookes  with the same birth dates that appear at the top of the list-- probably because you have been working on them so recently.

They are Cregoe-2 shown as born in St. Gerrans, Cornwall, EnglandCregoe-39 born in Saint Goran (the rest is the same), and Cregoe-41, which may be the same as Cregoe-39 (at least the Saint Goran part and the dates are the same).

Ideally, you want to merge the higher numbers into Cregoe-2, because it's the smaller number. 

Then, for each of the children, check and see which version of Maria Josephine is attached as his/her mother.  For example, William (Fookes-91) has Fookes-41 as his mother, but I think you've cut her loose from the family, and Wikitree is not treating her as the same Maria Josephine-Cregoe who is the mother of all of the children. It might be easiest for you to merge the three Cregoes listed above into Cregoe-2.  That way there won't be two others floating around cyberspace still needing to be merged.  I haven't used the new merge process yet myself, but I've read that it's easier than it used to be..  

Do you know how to proceed?

If Cregoe-2 is the correct mother of all the children, you need to go into each child and switch the mother to Cregoe-2 from the existing one.
