I'll attempt to make this short, I just had the urge that I'd like to see what my heritages are.
So I got started sat down, talked with my aunts and Uncles, Right from the start I'm already stuck. lol go figure
anyways I am wanting to head down my fathers side of the tree since noone has done this before on that side. And his father, my grandfather, I knew him as Raymond John George Denk, was actually adopted at a young age, his birth name was Steven Thomas Verostick. at any rate I haven't been able to find any of his natural brothers or sisters(7-10 total from what I've been told)
Any ideas on where I may be able to find this out, perhaps a way to find the adoption agency in Pittsburgh, PA. That changed his name to Denk? Noone on my family side knows where it was actually done at just that he was adopted.
Have you tried Family Search? (familysearch.org) You may find older relatives and find connections that way. Only persons over 100 are listed, so just researching the last name would probably be your best bet. They have listed births, census reports, social security reports, etc. Best of "Luck" to you...

I'm using Family Tree Builder and have both my mother's and father's family in one tree. I'd like to separate these two families now and have 1 tree for each. Can I do this in FTB and include all the notes, pictures, citations, etc. for each tree respectively? Help, my one tree is getting too big!! Thanks.
Hi, I received an answer for this and I'll relay it to you. It is not without some work. Have your family tree open and:
1. Click File, click export GEDCOM
2. Click Save As and name your new tree that you're creating; click next
3. Describe your tree or just click next
4. Click 'Include only Selected People'
5. This is where the work begins; you have to pick out the people you want in this tree, as in all your father's family. I selected one person from each branch within my Dad's side as the pedigree will pick up everyone related to that person in that branch.
6. Click OK then click Next. It will export your pictures in a separate file, if you'd like, but they won't be linked with your people in your tree. You have to re-link them. This is the case with exporting or importing any GEDCOM file. That can involve quite a bit of work if you have a lot of pictures like I did.
Hope this helps. Let me know if you need more help. Just post it on this topic and I'll get an email.
I am trying to research my great-grandfather from Italy, and not sure if I have found the right one. How do I know if the information I have found is the right Guiseppe? My father and Uncle have given me all the info they know, which doesn't include the year he arrived in New York.
Also, He supposedly came to NY twice, the second time with his wife. I cannot find any info on her. Any ideas why?
I am new to this, and any help offered would be greatly appreciated.
It's so easy to edit online, I did it from day one. Yes I uploaded a gedcom from my home program, or you can add them as you go.
If you are using the "classic look"3D tree, on the lefthand side of your page will be 2 tabs "LIST" or "PERSON". Click on person, it has a "edit details" tab there under the photo. You put in the dates of birth, death, marriage. Then when you are finished with that one, there will be detail under the photo of those you just put in. To put in places, (would've been handy to do this at same time) you click a box next to the one you want to edit and "edit" comes up, click that and a box will open up to put in places.
Easier to add parents as you already have the boxes above that person that says "Add Father or Mother" or "Add sibling"
I'm thinking maybe your problems are that your signing on as a guest not a webmaster, you may have to go back to your emails from Heritage to have a look at your passwords.
Hope this helps everyone, only takes 2 minutes to show you, harder to write it down.
It gets 100%, but just sits there on 'processing' or updating to site. I've tried to upload for the past couple of days with the same thing happening everytime. The other day I had to go out and left the computer on so the upload could finish and after many hours it was still sitting on 100%, but still 'processing' to site. The only option in the program is to 'Cancel'. The 'finish' button is greyed out and not clickable. This just stays like that for hours, and if I want to close the program or go back to viewing the tree I have to select the 'Cancel' button. If I click 'Cancel' what does this mean?? What data is lost?
I've checked the site and my tree is there, but I'm concerned that some info or data isn't being transfered because it just isn't 'fininshing' a proper upload.
Thing I noticed on the site is this: Usually after an upload the home page has something like: this person has uploaded a new tree.. This isn't there now. Which leads me to think that the tree isn't uploading properly.
