How can I add a generation between two of them?

+3 votes
My grandmother talked me about our roots. She made a mistake when she recited our ancestors and told me a name of my great great great grandfather instead of my great great grandfather's name, so it is missing. So, how can correct that?

P.S: If you still don't get it I can give you an example afterwards.

If you have the profile of your 1x great grandfather linked to your 3x great grandfather - this is a simple change.

You would go to the profile of your 1x great grandfather, and remove your 3x great grandfather as his parent. Once this is completed, you add a new profile (or find an existing profile) for your 2x great grandfather, listing him as the parent of your 1x great grandfather. Then, you link the 3x great grandfather as the parent of your 2x great grandfather.

If you need specific help, please link to one of the profile in question.

Yes I know that but the problem is still here because I also wrote about 6 generations of ancestors of my 3x grandfather. So, can I somehow add my 2x great grand father between?
When you say "wrote about", what exactly do you mean?  Did you create a freespace page with some text on it?

Just disconnect the relationship that is wrongly connected. Create a profile for the missing person if one does not already exist. Connect this one to the appropriate parent and child so that you fill the gap.
