Folks make changes to my tree - without my permission - and they are WRONG about the details. Then I can't delete the info. Can I make a GEDCOM of the tree - delete - and input another gedcom from Ancestry.com that could not be altered by another party? They could send me info that I would be happy to check and add if its correct - but I am tired of fighting these issues - and they NEVER respond to my emails. Thanks Fabel Konicke
Thank you for your feedback. The FamilySearch Family Tree is a collaborative shared tree. Please see this article for more information: What is the purpose of FamilySearch and Family Tree?
At FamilySearch all users participate in working on one single world wide tree. There isn't separate trees for separate users.
The problem with a collaborative shared tree is that no one wants to work together. I spent a lot of time working on my immediate family tree years ago in which I had real life evidence for who I knew personally and someone else who I’ve never met or heard of before comes along and adds or changes things they know nothing about such as changing my mother from living to deceased when I live with my own mother who is still living and claiming my father was buried when he was not buried. I didn’t get asked about any of this info and they weren’t required to prove why they felt the info needed changed and now I have to go through to try and correct and “prove” why my info is correct because I knew my own family by personal experience. They overrode my work without a hitch and I can’t fix anything without proof and/or approval. No one is collaborating which makes this tree full of dead branches.
need a color code chart for ordenances; ie, blue, black, orange, yellow, etc.
