Adding a Spouse in Family Tree Maker 2009

Adding a spouse to a person’s record in your genealogy software is a very common task. In this video I show you click-by-click, how it’s done. This includes three ways to begin the process of adding a spouse, using the date calculator, and adding a source citation with an image of the record.

    I’ve been using Family Tree maker for about 10 years now, and thought I knew it inside and out. But the 2009 version is so different from the previous versions, it took me a good long while to figure out how the heck I was supposed to add a spouse in it! I’m sure the info you’ve posted here will be a BIG help to those who are using the software for the first time.

    Thanks for the feedback! I’ve obviously only just scratched the surface of Family Tree Maker 2009 with these first three screencasts. There are many more to come.

    Do you have any suggestions for topics I can illuminate for yourself or others?
