How to enroll a student in Religious Ed whose family is registered at another church

- Click Add New Family in your family directory:
- Search for the family you want to add, select them, select Move Selected Family, then select As Unregistered (this will not "move" the family from their previous parish--it will just copy them into your database, so they will "live" in both):
