You can start a new family with an existing individual's record from Change Family Unit. You could use this when adult children move out of their parents' households or when a family divorces. This lets you change the individual's home address and other information.

When you start a new family with an existing individual, you move all of their records with them. You cannot start a new family with an individual if he or she is the only person in their existing family unit.

  1. Under Manage Records, click the Tasks tab.
  2. In the drop-down lists, select Change Family Unit and click Go .
  3. In the Move From section, click Find Person. Select the individual you want to start a new family with and click OK.
  4. In the Change Family Unit window, click Start New.
  5. When the confirmation message displays, click Yes.
  6. Answer any other messages that display, and then click Close.
