My father was married three times so when are you going to up date your system to include more than one previous spouse and identify stepchildren?
When I select Print Portrait Pedigree, I'm unable to see family photos on the icon. How do I resolve this problem.
So how do you report a problem/ inconsistency with the records or search interface or ...
Well, help! I made a mistake, and cannot find a way to correct it. I entered mother's information in the wrong place. How can I get rid of it? I don't want to get hung up on my data--I never married, have no spouse, and no children. I want simply to find information on my mother's great aunt, Annie Reese Cotton, born about 1904(?), parents were Charlie Cotton and Eula Jane Belcher. Dale County, AL/
Olá ! Fazer minha árvore genealógica, é tudo que eu quero nesse momento. Estou desconfiado que sou judeu, descendente de Portugal, fico pensando o quanto meus antepassados sofreram por terem uma religião. Alguém para ajudar a fazer a árvore, quero fazer e ter certeza, porque no momento estou bem confuso. As vezes fico atrapalhado, esses dias eu consegui ver ramificações até Açores. No outro dia eu queria mostrar para minha mãe o que eu tinha visto, eu não consegui fazer o caminho novamente. Obrigado!

Hi ! Making my family tree is all I want right now. I'm suspicious that I'm Jewish, descendant of Portugal, I keep thinking how much my ancestors suffered for having a religion. Someone to help make the tree, I want to do it and make sure, because at the moment I'm really confused. Sometimes I get confused, these days I managed to see ramifications to the Azores. The other day I wanted to show my mother what I had seen, I couldn't make it back again. Thank you!

I need help to correct my family tree! Someone entered my name as deceased and I've been trying to get this corrected! If it is not corrected, I cannot use your Family Tree since your contributors are not dependable!
How do I delete automatic entries to my tree that are not correct. I have a different paternal ancestor that differs from one automatically added from another tred.
My son had 2 different wives (at different times). I 'd like to add both of them to the tree. When I go under my son's name it shows both wives with a ball to select preference. It's like both of them cannot be in the tree. How can I add both as preference? Maureen O'Brien [email protected]
How do I correct erroneous entries in my family tree by others? I've noticed several this visit and see no connection to my family whatsoever.
The preference "ball" allows you to identify which wife will appear in the tree when you are in that mode. You can always switch to show the other when wanting to view that line.
How do I index "No one at home" "see sheet"? Just leave blank fields?
I have duplicates but am unable to find the Possible Duplicates option.
Someone else has the same problem I do. It is "how to correct erroneous entries in my family tree by others?," but I do not find an answer. There is a person named in my tree as my gg-grandfather's daughter, and I've never heard of her in my life. 😡
First: Double check the sources to make sure they don't have a valid entry for someone you may have missed.
Second: If entry is unsubstantiated and truly invalid, then click on parents of the erroneous individual, click on the edit/pencil tab, then remove erroneous person from parents. Be sure to document why you have removed the individual from those parents to reduce possibility of someone repeating the error.
@Janice Ella Chapman If it doesn't appear as a duplicate in the options on the right side (when looking at the individual details, under "Tools" dropdown), and IF you have the MRN for each of the duplicates, then you can use the "Merge by ID" option. (It's also on the right side of the details page).

I have been working on the 1950 Census and have had difficulties going back to another person or household to make a correction a mistake that I realized later. It threw off the place I was at ...ending the page before I had indexed all of the names. Is there a way to go back and review what I have indexed? Also, the 1940 census had pages we could go to if we had questions. Will that be available?
There is mistakes on family records. How do I fix them?
