I was looking at this site, I like the set up, but 9 bucks a month? I would totally pay for 5 dollars but 10 dollars just seems to much. I know there is a lesser one for cheaper but its so restrictive with how much you can put on here. I still might just bite my tounge and buy it if it wasn't annual, make it monthly please, I and I bet tons of other people don't want to plop down a lot of money just to find out it doesn't work for them or their family.
A monthly fee could be 'do-able' for many people on fixed incomes that just can NOT manage an annual membership fee. The option of paying monthly would probably greatly increase the number of paying members.
You can move your mouse over the left hand of the screen and limit the generations shown on the screen, and this will enable you to move between the siblings easier. You can then return to show all generations.
My problem is how to get the site to stop assuming every partnership is a marriage. It has caused some problems with people because they are furious that the system says "husband" or "wife" of someone they were never married to. Any Ideas? Maybe being able to just say partner ... some people are very "touchy" when they see their husband's former partners (those with children) being listed as ex-wife .. and visa-versa
There is an option "partner", but there is a mistake in the programme, for example I have a relative, who had a partner first and then married someone else. If I put it that way, the tree says he has a wife, but at the same time a partner. That made the wife really furious! So I had to put the first partner as divorced, although divorced means he was supposedly married, so it looks like he was twice married. That made him and the ex-partner furious! So this thing needs correcting! Best wishes, Rita
Thank you, but if I put the ex-partner as separated, the tree assumes, that the partner was a wed wife or a husband. So it doesn't have an different options for "divorced" and "separated" which would be ideal for separating official married couples and non-married couples. Best regards, Rita
I think that we should be able to have mulitple sets of parents if you've marked one set as your adopted parents. As people use these kinds of sites more and more to find out who their biological parents are, those people should be able to list both sets of parents.
If you are working with FTB this can be done with the options provided, for I have done it. The person will appear in the tree twice, because of the two different relationships, but that can be taken care of with a note. I don't know if this is possible with an on-line only tree. Also check the HELP manual; there may be another solution there.
