Add other linked persons

The concept of a linked person allows you to specify a link between two persons when:

  • The kinship is uncertain. You know that Paul is the uncle of John, but you do not know if he is the paternal or maternal uncle, or the husband of an aunt. Create a personal link between the two indi­viduals until the exact kinship may be determined.
  • There are no events to link the two persons. You know that Jane was a friend of Maria. Create a personal link Friend between these two persons.

(PC) Linked persons are displayed in the Links tabs of the tools panel. You can add, edit or delete them with    buttons. When at least one per­son is linked, a visual indicator (blue spot) is displayed on the Links tab.
