I am the creator of a family tree but it is not mine! How do I separate myself from the family info - I am doing it on behalf of my daughter's boyfriend and would like him and his family to have access to the tree but it keeps putting me as the main member with his Email address and he can't see any of the info. How can I change that?
I want to say a BIG thank you to Shlomi in the MH Team and send him a big bunch of roses.
He spent his weekend trying to help me to solve my problem (has been there from december 2013) with NOT beeing able to upload my tree or photos. It seems that we now, together, have solved the problem. Knock on wood!!!!
Now we ONLY have two main problems left. I can NOT import a GEDCOM file into my tree AND it takes me about 4-5 MINUTES just to add/edit a record. Alsoi with my WIN 8.1 OS I get an error message that "Family Tree Builder has stopped working".
I started my tree with my husband's full name but did not think to add the suffix III. When I created a son entry with the same name and specified the suffix IV, the tree builder made my son also my husband. Every time I try to fix the record, my fix is automatically applied to both my husband and my son and tree builder will not let me delete either of them so I can start over???
Well I tried it and it seems to work okay. But you must not just include the number as part of the name. You must ADD it separately as a suffix. And you probably need to start with number one.
You could do exactly the same as me (unrelated John Doe..) as a trial run if you like.
So; I added John Doe (Add Person, Unrelated person; because this is a trial and the 'person' is unrelated to anyone in MY tree) and clicked the arrow beside Surname and selected I. John Doe I. But note that the 'I' does NOT show in the Index. (Hover over the name in the index for more detail which DOES include the number)
Add son, John Doe, choose II in the same way.
Add HIS Son, John Doe, choose III in the same way.
Add HIS Son, John Doe, and you can't do it the same, there is no IV to select;
right click in his 'card', choose tab 'Main', click on Names; and manually enter IV in the space for Suffix.
John Doe IV
And as far as you like.
Note you will have to select and delete any errors such as having included the numbers as PART OF THE NAME, rather than as a SUFFIX TO THE NAME.
Note also that the programme automatically gives each a partner, with just the surname Doe. You will have to amend this for each lady so that her proper name is in the proper place...
The big deal being that you can't add children without two parents...
I know about this partly because although our family does not use suffix numbers, many children have exactly the same name as the parent.
No new postings are shown in the Family Tree Forum. Last one is 19 days old. Tried to to post today but it did NOT show up in the list. It shows up in the Forums list beside the FTB fourm but when I go to that forum it is not htere.
I started my Windows FTB with a GEDCOM file provided by my brother, who is a Mac user. I invited him to membership, and he can go directly to my web page and make changes from his Mac. Some of the Smart Matches I get are for his inlaws, about which I know nothing. Is it possible, and advisible, for me to forward my match e-mail notices to him for his action from his Mac?
It would not be advisable to send to your brother the SmartMatch email. The reason is because this email is linked to your account and should he click on the link then he would get a message telling him to log in, however this would have to be as you.
I would simply advise him to go into the online family site under his account details and that you mention to him the latest matches that have been given so that he may go through them and do with them as is needed.
I have set up a brand new branch of my family on your web site ;;; It took me 8 months or more to research all the relevant inforrmation. Now i'm getting hundreds of conformation requests and some are WRONG but I can't conmfirm or reject because i am not a Premium Subscriber!!!!!!! Are you serious about helping or are you just in the game for a buck

At first i would like to appreciate you for the useful & great web-based software for Family Free, that's really amazing and i should confess could not find any other websites like yours, Thank you sincerely.
I would like to know if there is any possibility to make "Different project of family trees" and join them together? I mean imagine i made my own family tree and in new project i make another family tree for my wife, now can i join my wife's family tree to mine? how? and will it come in one place letting other see both families in a same tree?
Thank you very much for your kind supports & very good website!
Use you and your wife as the starting point for your family trees. You will then be able to add ancestors and descendants from that point on, and you don't have to worry about importing / merging anything. Her ancestors can have many branches to their families and you will then be able to see how the descendants of those other branches relate to your family by generation.
Not quite sure what you mean with this "The program itself, NO resourses, NO online profile, NO smart matches ..." If you are a premium member there are NO limits!! The program Family Tree Builder is for FREE and you can use it on your PC as much as you like!!
