Children attached to wrong parents on my genealogy.
Someone has attached children to my great grandfather and grandmother, not leaving a contact to let them know, they are with the wrong people. How can I get this fixed? Had they done research on Ancestry they could have seen this clearly. They put them with mine because they are sort of the same names, but not the same...and place is not right either.
Thank you for contacting FamilySearch in Community about your concern that another guest has incorrectly attached children to your great grandparents. This can be a real frustration, especially when the person does not leave contact information.
We would advise you to "follow" your great grandparents person pages so you will be aware if changes are made in the future. Here is an article that explains how to "follow" an ancestor. https://www.familysearch.org/en/help/helpcenter/article/can-i-follow-an-individual-in-family-tree
In the meantime, you can correct the parent child relationships by following the knowledge article we found in the Help Center in FamilySearch. https://www.familysearch.org/en/help/helpcenter/article/how-do-i-correct-parent-child-relationships-in-family-tree
We hope this will be helpful to you and are sorry you are having to deal with this concern. Hopefully others will leave their contact information in the future. Thank you for contacting FamilySearch0
When you say they have not left a contact, do you mean that there is no username shown as "Last Changed: May 23, 2016 by somebody" in the various parts of the Person Details. This is the first place I look when I want to discuss a record or event with a contributor.0
Thank you for your question about how to change relationships that have been entered incorrectly. @Suzanne Adams1 has given you the process to do this.
For your other comment as to how to contact the person, @LDS Search Test has given a good answer. There is always a way to contact the contributor of the information.
If you want to see the name of the most recent contributor, make sure the button right under the word "Vitals" (Detail View) is green. If it is gray, just click on it to turn it green.
To see all changes, click on Edit after the incorrect information and click on See All Changes at the bottom of the pop-up. Or, under the Family Members section, click on the small pencil icon after the incorrect child and scroll to the bottom to find the See All Changes link.
Think about your goals. The easy fix is to just cut out the children who do not belong, but that invites an edit war with the other contributor. Instead, you might spend a few minutes on the other contributor's tree. Create a set of parents for those children, attach the children, and leave a friendly note for the other contributor about how these families have similar names but are in separate places.
The other contributor likely is a beginner here, so be gentle.0
