Unnamed father automatically created?

+6 votes

OK, this is a weird one.  I just created a father for an existing profile.  I first created Edmund Chisman-23, and then his brother, John Chisman-24, but then, the software automatically created a father for them both, named Unnamed Father Chisman-25! 

Is this something new or a weird glitch?

When you create siblings without first creating a parent, the sytem automatically creates a parent-- in this case (and all cases?) a father. I.e., the system needs a "parent" to connect the two siblings together.

Oh.  Thanks, Jillaine. Guess I never tried to do siblings before.  Now I need to figure out whether we know who the father was.laugh
