Mary,

I believe this is what I explained in my reply to Linda's query (at least
that was my intention). However, I did not explicity indicate that this
would be done in the vital events section. In any case, in the vital events
section there is a list of Roles available. The default is "All roles" or
you can select "Subject", "Spouse of the subject", "Father of the subject",
"Mother of the subject", or "Other". In the Name field you are to type the
surname and a First name is also mandatory.

I don't see how you can list the children of a couple using the above
functionality (at least not "directly"), but I would certainly be very happy
to learn that there is, in fact, a way to do this that I'm not currently
aware of. For children born after 1766, it has always seemed to me that
using the PRDH must be similar to spending an evening at a casino.

Thanks.
Gerry
