Can't correct mistakes
I was going to put my family on Family Search but after trying it I think that I will change my mind and stay with Geni. If you make a mistake here it is nearly impossible to correct it and with Geni I have a Help section that will answer most of my questions and if not I can get an answer in 24 hours. Here I can find no help in a simple form. I have no idea where this post is going but I hope that someone gets to read it. LeRoy Larson0
@LEROY916, I wish you joy of Geni... Between the constant paywall (worse than Ancestry!) and the impossible sourcing, I gave up on it years ago.
I don't know why you think mistakes are difficult to correct on FamilySearch's Family Tree. There are usually multiple ways to recover from just about anything, and you never lose any data, because everything is tracked in the change log.
And I'm curious: what device and browser are you using that you find this forum so hard to parse? Forums have been around longer than the Web, so I'm sure you've encountered one before, which makes me think there must be something wrong with the site's configuration in some combination of access parameters.2
I am learning little by little but the trouble is that I am 92 and by the time I get what I want I forgot how I got there. I have a laptop and use Google chrome. I started out with the idea that it would be nice to add my family tree to Family Search but I may give up on that as my family tree has over 4600 members and I can find no other way to add other one at a time.0
I'm not sure age has anything to do with forgetting how you got somewhere.... :-)
In a collaborative/communal tree, "one at a time" is really the only way to add anything, because otherwise you run the risk of treading all over someone else's work. One suggestion: if that 4600-person tree is in a genealogy program or on a website that can generate a GEDCOM file, you can upload that file to the Genealogies section of FamilySearch. (After the upload, it'll offer to let you add people from the file to the collaborative tree, but it's best not to take it up on that offer, because the tool is badly flawed. It's like working blindfolded.) Once the file is in Genealogies, it will be publicly searchable and viewable -- meaning that you can ask for help in updating the big Tree with its contents.1
