Combining Family Trees

Combining Family Trees

I'm new to Family Tree Maker 2012 and have created two separate trees. One starts with our Grandson (five months old) and goes back along the paternal side to the 1700s. The other starts with my wife and her nine siblings and goes back to the early 1800s. Is there any way to link my wife's tree to my grandson's tree without typing all the info in one of the trees into the other?

Sure, at File > Merge, merge the two trees.

Then to go File > Person > Attach whoever to whoever to connect the two trees.
