Hello again,

In digging deeper, I have discovered many of my disconnected individuals are siblings of those already in my tree. However, in most cases, there are no parents. Upon creating my gramps files from a gedcom, it took these siblings and disconnected them.

When a person in my tree passes away I list the siblings if shown in the paper. Or perhaps it's from a wedding that shows "siblings" I'm not sure. But I do know that I don't have a name for the parents.

How can I connect them as siblings to others already in my database when there are no known parent names?

Thank you!

I also took my filter-generated list and tried to move it to "clipboard". This generated and unexpected error and I was unable to file an error report because it took me to a page at gramps for which I did not know what to do. I finally had to do "print screen" about 5 times to get my list of people to print...there has to be an easier way. Am I just not seeing it?
