I did mine a little differently as the files had gotten too
cumbersome but this has been many years ago. I choose my father and
other and created two separate lines with all relations. I choose my
husband's parents and created two separate lines.
I now maintain four separate databases and have uploaded them to
World Connect as such. I used PAF so not sure how FTM works.
