I would find many of my questions answered if there were some sample profile with all facts, addresses and other fields filled in. It is not clear to me how to fill in some fields, especially when it comes to adding information about a person from the past: should all the addresses be added to "Facts" and is "Contact information" ignored in this case? What should be done with locations that no longer exist or are renamed and therefore cannot be found on the map automatically? Should only Town be inserted in the person's birthplace or Town [comma] Country?
Is there some sample but detailed family tree that can be taken as an example? If there is no such thing, could perhaps someone share the address to their online tree?
I have two previously-created (almost identical) family trees that I wish to delete, but they do not show up under "my sites" or "manage site(s)". I can find them, but the site does not recognize me as the 'manager' of these two trees. I have only one account, so I do not understand why I am unable to access and edit all the information I have input.
No. Blackwell-Ruccius and Olson-Bedwell are new, and I do not want to delete those. I have access to those two, they're fine.
The two old ones that I am unable to access as administrator/manager are both named Blackwell-Swidersky. The two Blackwell-Swidersky trees do not show up in My Sites, and I am unable to made edits to them. Hence my inquiry as to why I am unable to access, make edits and/or delete them.
I have been creating my family tree using Family Tree Builder, and I have figured out how to generate a book in pdf form. However, I have two questions:
1. How do I save the family tree to a disc as ged files, so that I have a backup?
2. Also, how do I share ged files from my tree with others, and how do I ged files from their family trees? I ask this, because, when I confirm Smart Matches, I can copy and paste only the information at the top (dates of birth and death, etc.). I would also like to be able to transfer the names of family that appear below that. Surely, I don't have to copy all those names manually.
I selected my primary language to be Serbian, and my family surname is Kišić but when I save the changes the program is automatically changing that into Kišic ( ć into c) and Neđeljko into Nedeljko (đ into d). So the program is recognising some characters from Serbian alphabet and some not. Is there any way to fix that problem, it is essential part of functionality of the program, right?
I see that you actually created your family tree in the software Family Tree Builder, and then published the tree to your family site. This means that in order to edit your family tree, you have to edit it in the software Family Tree Builder, and then republish the tree to your site, in order to update it.
Please let me know if you have any more questions regarding this.
