Accidently listed female ad male and now can't fix it.

+1 vote
When I originally entered Angeline Emaline Caya born October 21, 1847 I did not change the sex from male to female.  I went back to edit it and made the change, but it still shows on the Lockhart 4571 tree as a male.  How can I fix this.

Elizabeth, edit her DAUGHTER's profile and remove her as FATHER, then re-add her as MOTHER.

Also, please nobody else jump in and do this for Elizabeth.  She won't learn how-to if we do it for her.

(Trust me, I was tempted to simply fix it, but sat on my hands instead.)
Great advice Melanie!

Thanks, Marion.  blush

Elizabeth, I forgot to say that if you have any trouble with it, just drop me a message and I'll do what I can to walk you through it.  (Sometimes it is easier when someone shows the way.) 

Thanks, too, for the star.  blush

She's a female now on her own profile.  What else are you concerned about?

The profile I see says Angeline is daughter of two unknown parents and mother of a child.  I suspect you might be looking at a cached web page.  Try reloading the page and/or clearing the cache on your web browser and see if that fixes the problem.

A profile updates instantly when you edit it, but there may be time lag in updating the family tree that you are seeing at

Be patient.
