hey guys - any luck yet with changing someone's parents? My father-in-law's brothers and sisters are from two different fathers, but when I initially made the tree, I didn't know that, so I put them all under one father. I'd love to flip half of them over to the other father but don't know how to do so. The last time I used the offline editor, I lost pictures on my tree and it re-uploaded under a different tree...so I don't know if I want to try that again (unless the software's a little more intuitive now)...
Thanks Esther - that might be what I need to do. Now, I see that it says you need to re-tag people when you re-import your GEDCOM. I suppose I don't have too many pictures, but I know others have tons and tons of pics - they'll need to re-associate all of the people with their pictures? Thank god I don't have many pics and people as of yet!
I refuse to believe that with all of the great minds you've got there (no sarcasm - this is a great site!) you guys can't figure out simple stuff like being able to re-asign parents or update live from FTB to the web. You've got a lot of good people working on this software - now time to really kick into high gear and develop, develop, develop!
How long before it is available? I have many relatives who also "edit" their info and do not, evidently, know how to choose the right father. After they have entered a lot of info, they realize they have to enter it again at another spot. This is time consuming and would be a simple edit to allow changing of a parent, child, spouse, etc. If it can be programmed on the FTB offline, it can be programmed on the myHeritage online tree. RRRRRRRRIiiiiiiiiiiGGGGGGGGhhhhhhhhhTTTTTTTT?
Now it's my turn to check in! Somehow, my grandfather ended up with an "unknown" mother while the rest of his brothers and sisters are attached to the correct mother. I'm just trying to add his mother, but it doesn't allow me to choose one that's already in my tree. It makes me create a new one instead.
On the bright side, all of my relatives so far have been more than willing to add their families and even pictures to the tree! Yay!
I'm using the offline client. I have some ancestors who married the same family (two cousins married a father and son). So in two branches of my tree there are some of the same people. I cannot figure out how to add the same person as father to two different people? So right now I am putting the same people in twice. I found a menu item to change a parent, but it only shows 800 people - and the ones I need to work with are something like people number 2000 .

Just browsing and noticed under the family tree tab, where manage trees is, there's some stats, one of which says "unique surnames". What does this mean? Is this the amount of surnames which only appear once in the family tree?
Oh okay, I thought that was what "Families" were - I thought each family was counted by their surname (ie, "family name") but I guess they are just counted by a mother and father and their children? Thanks.
