I need to link to an already existing person.

I have information on Magdalena Moninger’s Parents and descendants.  Was trying to add all of the children for her parents and found her already existing.  I am not sure how to link her to her parents.  Thanks

When you go to add a person such as a parent, you click on the appropriate add link (look in the right hand column). When the page comes up, you have the option to enter the WikiTree ID of the person you want to add in. Also, when you are adding a new person, once you've added birth data, you will start to see a possible match list to remind you to check for matches.

Thank you so much.  It worked, I was having trouble with the Wiki ID, but have it added now.  You are the best.
You are welcome

On Magdalena's profile, below her name should be links for [father?] and [mother?].  Click one, and enter the WikiID (it looks like Name-###) for the appropriate parent.  Click Save at the bottom.  Voila!

Thank you so much for the help.  Got it added without creating a mess, I think....
