If you choose the add operation from the main menu, LifeLines displays the add menu:

What do you want to add?
  p Person - add new person to the database
  f Family - create family record from one or two spouses
  c Child - add a child to an existing family
  s Spouse - add a spouse to an existing family
  q Quit - return to the previous menu

These operations work in a straightforward way. LifeLines asks you the necessary questions, and lets you cancel at any time. The operations provided by this menu are also available from the browsing modes, and are often easier to perform there.
