How do I add children or change the birth order?

First, of course, you need to be logged on. You need to have a family before you can add children. When you registered for the site, you sent in your direct Smith line, so the families in that line should already be listed in TNG. If you don’t have a mother or father’s name for the family, you can make a dummy spouse by simply clicking CREATE and then save. Once you do that, you will see, on the family page, where you can add a child. If there is already at least one child, you’ll see where you can add additional children. To the left of the child is a DRAG button that lets you drag children up or down if, say, the first one is the list was not the first born. Then, make sure you save your changes.
You can either FIND or CREATE a child. It’s good practice when there are a lot of people, to FIND first, in case there is a lower-down branch of people that can be tied into a family. Otherwise, click CREATE
After you click CREATE, you will see the ADD NEW PERSON screen

For the Smith Official DNA Project (All Locations) a minimum of 25, or better, 37 YDNA markers, is strongly recommended. Many times one can appear to match other kits but the match falls apart after 12 markers. We do not attempt to match kits into groups on less than 25 with the exception of a strong paper trail or known family kinship with another tester.
