Detaching a person

Detaching a person

I am using FTM 2012,

How do you detach a step mother from a step son? When ever I do it seems to detach the father as well, I want to keep the father in place but just detach/remove the stepmother.

Thanks

Are you selecting the step mother, Detach person, and selecting the correct family?

Yes I am, but the correct family does not pop up for me to select from, I want to remove stepmother while leaving the father there.

Ok I think i got it, I detached and it left the son with no parents then I went and attached just the father. I think this works.

It sounds to me like you did not have the son attached to the correct parents in the first place. Do you know who the birth mother is?

No, I just have the fathers name. I think I have it fixed now.

I detached the fathert and stepmother then I just attached a father.
