Unlinking a Spouse

When you choose to unlink an individual from their spouse, you are telling Legacy to break the tie that exists between that person and their husband or wife and their children (if any).  Unlinking a person does not delete the individual from the family file.  It simply disconnects him or her from having a marriage relationship to the current spouse, and a father or mother relationship with any children.  The person would retain any existing link to his or her parents.

? To unlink a spouse:
1. Right-click on the name of the spouse you want to unlink while they are displayed on the Family View.
2. Select Unlink from the shortcut menu and then choose From Husband (or From Wife) from the submenu.  The Unlink window appears, showing the spouse and children from which the spouse will be unlinked.
3. To complete the unlinking, click Yes.  To abort, click Cancel.
