François or Françoise Mazurie - LYNZ-FPV (unknown to my family) is linked to
Marie Anne Rullier - LYNZ-KKM my ancestor.
Could you delete F. Mazurie ? Thank you
No, people can't delete Françoise, and shouldn't, as he looks to be a real person who actually existed. What people -- including you! -- can do is delete the relationship between Françoise and Marie Anne (who clearly cannot be his wife, since she died in infancy). To do so, go to either person's Details page and click the edit/pencil below where they appear as a couple in the left-hand column of the Family Members section. In the resulting popup, click "Remove or Replace" below the spouse and follow the prompts.
Once you've done that, I suggest going to Marie Anne's page and adding source citations for her birth and death. This will make her unsuitability as a wife somewhat more convincing.2
Thank you for a fast answer. Everything is OK now.0
Hi there, don't know if you can help but:
I had a tree on this site going back from myself to the 1700s and have researched my tree thoroughly over more than 20 years now . Apart from the usual births, marriage, death and burial records for the earlier ancestors I also have photographs of their headstones and for some copies of their wills and probate.
When I went into the tree today to update some data I found that my 'ancestry' had been incorrectly changed by someone (Name not published here) in January 5 this year. I went to replace this incorrect data pretty much following the above to correct the situation with the justification and as a result my whole tree seems to have disappeared and I am left with only the incorrect person and his wife.
The people concerned are Joseph Caines (L58N-W9Y) and his parents, that should be Thomas Caines (9CVP-GXP) and Pricilla Warren (MXQZ-JN6). They had been, in my opinion, incorrectly replaced with a James Cains (GJB5-SD30 and Judith Cains (GJB5-9XC). I still have the full tree and all the data including images of documents, transcripts of the harder to read ones, photographs and the LDS IDs in my Roots Magic tree with another back-up copy in Ancestry. Short of starting again how can I restore my tree on the site.0
@Chris Caines, nothing can be permanently removed by other users of the Family Tree. It's all still there in each profile's change log, and you can restore it. Yes, it takes a non-trivial amount of work, unfortunately, but you don't need to resort to offsite backups.
It looks like Joseph Caines https://www.familysearch.org/tree/person/details/L58N-W9Y was merged away in January (with the highly illuminating reason of "same person"). If you believe this merge was in error, you can restore Joseph's profile. I haven't investigated further, but you'll probably find other merges that need to be undone, and then you'll need to clean up all of the relationships and residences and sources.
For future reference, if you have a new question, it's best to start a new thread for it, using the big blue "Ask A Question" button in the appropriate category.0
