hi, aviv. thank you for your response. i appreciate it. however, as i explained in my first paragraph, that method did not work because both trees are already projects on my ftm. i created them and already have both gedcoms. using those instructions does not give me the same options because both are existing projects. thatks my dilemma.
Thank you for writing to us.
I am so happy to hear about your discovery!
Regarding the merging of the trees, please take a look at the following FAQ:
I understand. In this case you will need to export one of the projects to a GEDCOM file, so you will be able to merge this file with the other Family Tree Builder project. You can export a GEDCOM in the Family Tree Builder by going to File > Export Gedcom.
Please take a look at the FAQ that one of the posts above direct to, regarding merging trees.
In the FAQ it is mention that in order to merge the second tree into the first, when you are asked if you would like to close the current tree, you will need to click on No. Then you should have the option to import the tree tree into the one that was just open.
If the photo was added in Family Tree Builder, you must make sure to delete it from the tree in Family Tree Builder as well as from your site. Otherwise it will reappear the next time you publish your tree.
Tackför att duskriver till oss.

Up until last week everything was fine. But I had a large number of smart matches in my site which I worked through. However when I received confirmation of matches and went to update and merge through FTB, the confirmed names and matching family sites are not there. It seems I would have to manually record the information and input it into FTB. This is not realistic and would take weeks/months. Anybody else had this problem?
I can't for the life of me remember or figure out how I add information and people to my tree. I don't know if I have to be in family tree buider or what. Anyway, I just cannot figure it out. Can anyone help?
I can see that you both have trees that were created in Family Tree Builder.
When you create a family tree in Family Tree Builder and publish it to your family site, you CANNOT edit the tree online. If you built your tree in Family Tree Builder, each time you would like to make changes to your tree online, edit your tree in Family Tree Builder and then re-publish your family tree to your family site. This will update the previously published tree (with the same name) on your site.
I have no idea what FTB is. But I went into my heritage builder or something and saved it - and now the new info is there. I dont mind this site. Its a bit complicated to do things and once I figure it out -- I always forget for the next time!!
Du får lägga till en partner till den som är mamma/pappa till barnet och till det paret lägger du till barnet. Om pappan skulle vara okänd struntar du bara i att fylla i namnet på pappan. Bara så att du får ett föräldrapar att lägga till barnet. Det går att lägga till barn till ensama föräldrar vilket tex är vanligt om man börjar från någon känd historisk person och lägger till barn. Kan bli lite krångligt om man senare lägger till den saknade modern/fadern. Ibland skapar programmet 2 familjer där den ensama föräldern är den ena familjen och paret är den andra. Då kan man behöva flytta barnet till rätt familj.
I had been invited into MyHeritage by my relative and I had become a member of his site. How do I start my own family tree? Lets say I want to start (almost) "independent" tree with my ancestors that will not be counted into the limit of the original tree, just into my tree. Then I'd like to SmartMatch my trees.
I am looking into Family tree / Manage trees but I can not add a new tree.
Do I have to have a separate login to start an "independent" tree to become the administrator of such tree while still being a member of the original tree?
