Thank you so much for all the information. I am so happy to e able to use Geneanet as I have French ancestors to the 15th century and I am sure more. It is so exciting to find about my French ancestors.So much information I dearly wish that I could speak French. Thank You.

How do I indicate a second marriage in my tree?

Answer from Geneanet: Click the pen icon then “Add spouse”.
