How do I add a divorce in my tree in Family Tree Builder?

Divorces, like marriages, births, deaths and other events are recorded as facts in the tree.

In order to show a divorce between two people in the tree, add a divorce fact for the couple. You can do this in the following way:

1.     Open your family tree in Family Tree Builder. 

2.     Find the couple whom you would like to set as ‘divorced’.

3.     Double-click on the current status located just below the husband and wife’s cards.


4.     In the window that opens click on the drop-down menu under ‘Status’ section and select’ Divorce’.
