This has probably been brought up somewhere, or the info is right there in front of me but I just don't get it, but can site members add to the same family tree or would they need to pass relevant information onto the site administrator.
import an other gedcom (can be done but creates multiple same persons, prefixes (de Vos is prefix "de" surname Vos) and more of these issues (imported from gramps)
chose between update site (seperate project) or seprate project
merge between projects (peace of tree from other project)
clean up unused atributes
clean up names (all upper/lower or first letter uppercase)
GEOcoordinates (google maps link for example)
add plugins (ake make onwn addons) such as making a custom import from websites (databanks)
only export .zed from other heritage site (not gedcom)
bulk adding of source refrences (if you added from 1 source point a lot of relatives
zoom out in a whole overview of tree so navigating would be better (already now it's good)
print whole / part tree on big paper (plotter) or desktop printer
show only relatives off (if you want all related to 1 "level" relative (with or without direct married partner, kids in other name)
genderchange of person
married name of man (in the netherlands is possible to assume the name of the wife)
some relatives use 2 surnames or is a custom in a country when parents are not married
ability to show married surname
adding "to do marker" (note for todo) and that you can make a view of all todo items
adding websites to sources/resources (sperate fields)
merging multiple gedcom " persons" to one is nice because it can save a lot of time adding persons. note: merge needs to see if added data = same or different and ad als alternate or request user for import (also has to add source of import)
I'm with you on adding citations and links to other pages. I could copy and paste, but for obvious reasons, I don't want to do that. Seems like a "no brainer" tool. I don't know if we can to it in FTB, but even if I can, I don't want to import my FTB because then I can't edit the tree online. It could be I'm missing it, but I sure can't find it.
Last year I joined your site, I used my old e-mail. I have some family members that would like to join my family tree but I can't get in cause I somehow forgot my password. If anyone can help me that would be great..
If you lost your password just go to the site and at the right hand side go to Log in.
Click Forgot my password and a new password will be emailed to you automatically. That is if you can get to your old email, if not, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org providing the email you used to sign up and we will send you a new password as soon as possible.
Some family members have been on the site and modified their personal details. If I now publish from Family Tree Builder, will it overwrite the new information on the web site. I'd like to be able to restore from the web site but that feature is not available yet.
I suppose what I'm asking is that when you publish does it synchonise both ends.
Hi been trying to print my everybody tree but I susupect that I have to download the new version of FTB, have been using the free and am now a premium member. Looked to download the new version but can not find it. Have already upgraded the newer version that was sent to users last month. Also how much is the 3.0? thanks Mark
I would like to have my tree editable online so that other members can keep it updated as well. From the reading I have done, I realize that when I publish from FTB this will not be an editable tree for members. It is my understanding that I must use a GEDCOM tree to have members have this feature. I have tried adding a the tree as a GEDCOM numerous times and none of them have had the editing feature. What am I doing wrong? Help!!! Thanks!
