Legacy Tip - How to add a child with an unknown gender

Nancy asked a great question on our Legacy mailing list today:

"Is it possible to add a child without indicating gender? I know this couple had a child but that is all I know right now. I would like to add the child to the database but it looks like I must choose male or female."

Yes! It is easiest to add the child with the unknown gender from the Family View's list of children. Click where it says "Click to Add a Child" and select the "Add a New Child (unknown gender)" option. Click on the image below for a larger picture.

In the Child's Information screen, as shown below, the unknown gender will be indicated by the question mark.

I love all the tips no matter how small or large. Thanks.

That's cool. I have sometimes been unable to determine gender even when I have a name.
