How to make connecting family trees

0 votes
So this is gonna sound weird but hear me out, okay so I'm using to program to make the family tree of the Harry Potter characters and I have Harry as my starter person, and I know I can't make a Partner's family tree but is there a way to add another tree that links to that person so I could create another tree, idk if that makes any sense but please let me know!


EDIT: maybe I can make everyone connected on one page, but I'm not sure! Please let me know!

To be honest, creating a fictional tree can be pretty time-consuming but definitely worth it. What you can do is:

  1. Select the founder of the family tree (in your case, Harry) and under Click to add your relatives on the left-hand side of the screen, select the Add partner/ex button
  2. Select the founder's partner and under Click to add your relatives, select the Add parents button
  3. From here on, you can continue expanding on the relatives (as long as they have some sort of connection to a name on the tree)

In response to your edit, unfortunately, Family Echo won't show the entire tree in the way that you want because it'd be too confusing (as you'll know based on their FAQ page), but you can view each person's branch up to 15 generations (which can be selected through Show options) by opening more tabs of the same family tree. Just remember to save your tree with every edit!

I think what their trying to say is that because of the black family, some characters are doubly connected
i had that problem when trying to create a Greek God family tree too
