I added a person as a sibling instead of a son. How do I delete this person so I can add him back in correctly.

You can edit the relationship.

Select the profile and go into edit mode. At the right of the page you will see options to edit relationships. Just disconnect the wrong connection. Make a note of the profile number first so that you can easily find him again to connect to the right person.

Dennis, Thanks for the best answer star.
unfortunately, while you can add or "delete" relationships for parents, children and spouses, you can't for siblings.  I know, I'm trying to do just that now.  You can only add siblings, not "delete" them (disconnect if you prefer).  Apparently, this was a programming oversight.

We don't delete profiles, just edit the father and mother to the correct people.

When you say "delete", we all freak out and mistakenly think you mean to actually delete, rather than "disconnect" (to "delete" the relationship).

(just a note about terminology, and how it can confuse -- otherwise, I think the others have provided the answers to help you make the right corrections)
