There are a number of methods to build a family pedigree, see the Quick Start Guide.

Cousins can be added as follows:

  1. Add the number of aunts and uncles using the 'Family - Building Options' dialog which opens when you first enter the 'Family History' section and use 'OPTION 2'. Or you can add the number of aunts and uncles in the 'Edit Family' menu in the 'Family History' section.

  2. Then mouse-over the aunt or uncle, in the pedigree, that is the parent of the cousin. This reveals widgets that can be used to add family members.

  3. Use the widget to add a partner. This creates the partner and a child (cousin - male by default).
    The sex of the individual can be changed by clicking on them and updating it in the ‘Individual’s Details' on the right hand side.
  4. Additional cousins can be added using the widgets to either (a) 'add a child' to the parent or (b) 'add a sibling' to the cousin.
