Go to the Profile of the child concerned.
Then, click on "Edit" (Top Right), and then "Edit Relationships".

From there you will be able to add alternate parents, and delete existing parents.

If I delete existing parents I will loose them all together from the tree though will I not ?
Just want to move everyone up one line if that is possible without having to re-enter all the individual person details again

On the edit profile when you click remove parent it will only remove that person as the parent of the profile person nobody else

Removed original parents but still will not recognise his sister name to add as mother ???

Edited just tried again and it worked thank you all solved now

You DO NOT need to delete anyone from the tree. Just disassociate the present parents from the child and attach the correct mother. Do not look for the child of the mother look for the mother of the child. You MUST disassociate the current parents first otherwise the tree won't accept the new relationship.

KGarrad. The brother IS the child.

Edit; Ah! Glad to see you've manage to solve it . Well done!

What's all this about alternate parents?
One wife for weekdays, the other at weekends, I assume.
