It does not seem to work with a web-based three though? Do I need to download it as a GEDCOM and do this in my own software and then upload the new version? Or is it possible to do this on the internet? (I would certainly prefer that!)
hmm no idea. i tried it out on a family tree online and had no success. yeah the best thing to do is probablly like you said to transfer it to the software (more versatility) and makes the changes and then upload the gedcom again. not sure exactly how to get the gedcom off the net, but i'm sure other FAQ bloggers have done such a thing in the past. then from the software publish to your site. sorry i couldnt be more help to you. maybe someone else has an idea. the tree on the net is limited which is ironic since the software is so nice and easy to use and can make those kind of issues a piece of cake. :)
I've done much work online, but now need to synch that with what I have on my computer. How do I do that? Can I download a gedcom then load and merge the gedcoms? How do I do this or am I not supposed to be entering things online. I just like the ease of the online software vs the software I load onto my computer.
Dear Kevin: you must delet a person on the software in your PC (it is impossible to do it online, otherwise that supression wil not be saved. Follow the instruction given in answer 1, clicking with the mouse, in order to choose the person that is going to be deleted. Then you press "delet" on your keyboard. Save the action and send the information to your website. Good luck!
Don't forget this: you must delet or remove the names entender in error on your software downloaded in your PC. After removing those names, save the action and immediately you'll receive the question which will lead you to your website online in order to update your new pieces of information.
Can someone help me with how you would "link up" an common individual between two lines? I have a number of common ancestors (cousins marrying cousins, etc.) and ideally the trees would show that relationship - but I can find no way to do it.
Is it just my computer, or has the tagging format changed? The pictures are now very small and the ability to tag is very limited. Is this an interim or has it changed permanently as it is now not very user-friendly.
Thanks very much...other than this, I love this site!
