Mary, welcome to G2G forum.

Please see the following post on how to add spouses:

You can add a 3rd (or 4th, etc.) spouse the same way.

Children are to be attached to their corresponding parents: Your g-grandfather is the father of all of them, but each one of them is to be connected to their appropriate mother.

My 5th g-grandfather Manuel Antonio Fraguio had 3 wives and children by each one of them. Perhaps a visit to Manuel Antonio's profile may help you to figure out how this is done. Feel free to click on the edit tab of Manuel Antonio or any of Manuel Antonio's spouses or children to see how spouses / parents / children are listed/attached.

Check out Cook-12362 (Pascal H. Cook) for an example. Wives are entered in the appropriate column on the right side. Children (of spouse) can be entered there, too- with the appropriate wife designated.

Questions? Most of us are happy to answer them- we're a friendly bunch. Feel free to ping me if you get confused.
