I saw that it was said that they would return the left panel. Mine has not returned, and I can't find any way for that to be an option. Is it fixed for you? I was just wondering when they might finally put it back so that it works again. I, too, used it VERY frequently and miss it very much.
My tree has two beople with the same name. I wanted to invite person1 to work on the tree but by mistake invited person2 using person1's email. When I realized the mistake I told him not to use the site until I corrected the error. I erased person2 from the site, added him again, put in a different email, and when I tried to invite person1 using the original email it said that person2 was invited (that is, an account had been opened) using person 2's (incorrect) email.
How can I cancel the account opened for person two, and invite person 1 using the email address that was incorrectly assigned?
On top of it all, the help page says click on "ask a representative" But that form doesn't show up!!
The HELP staff wasn't working over the long holiday so I had to figure it out by myself (pat on the back ). For anyone interested, I erased the person2. Then I put in the email into person1 (where it should have been). The invitation was sent (because person2 didn't exist on my site) and ONLY THEN did I add person2 back to the tree with no email. The invitation was sent, I hope successfully. Ben
If the tree is correct in Family Tree Builder (FTB) software, but mixed up in the online site, I suggest that you remove the publication of the tree in your website and publish the tree tree again from your family tree builder software.
To delete your tree: go to your family site > Family Tree tab > Manage trees > Choose to delete the tree.
After the tree is deleted from the site, publish it as new from the software.
Notice that it might take longer than usual, as all photos are uploaded again to the site.
When I began creating my tree with FTB I decided to include my grand parents and descendants/ascendants from both sides of the family. I'm realizing now that I would prefer to have 2 trees instead of just 1. Is there a way to move 1 side of my family to another tree and all at once? I've already created a new project for this other tree (other side of my family). But right now to me, the only option I seem to have is to have 2 trees containing the same people and delete persons who don't belong in that tree 1 by 1.
I need help regarding "sources". Basically, I'm not sure what a source is exactly. From reading about it I think that a source can be a document like a Birth Certificate. Is this correct?
If it is correct, then to me it means that for every person I have in my tree and have a birth certificate for, I have to create a new source. i.e. If I have 95 persons in my tree and have a b.c. for each person, I'd end up with 95 sources. Plus, if I have a marriage certificate for let's say 40 people, I'd end up with another 40 sources. Does this sound correct?
