How Do You Delete Someone?
Savannah Wheeler
- Close

I'm working on my family history on Family Tree Builder and I added a name I didn't mean to and now I have no idea of how to delete the name and get rid of it off the list of names.

Everyone says this site is confusing and I have to agree!

For privacy of living people, how can I edit this within my trees. .   There are generations I need to protect from publishing or matching. Problems with Identity Fraud have been experienced. Please help. E V Lennie (nee Salisbury)

Hi Nancy,

I have updated your account to use your current name "Bordacs". 

In the future, if you need to change any information in your profile please read this FAQ post:

How do I edit my profile?

Let me know if you need further assistance.

I am more than frustrated. Somehow I added two people they now say unknown and I can't get rid of them. I have tried the suggestions. I need these two gone as they add ageneration that shouldn't be there.  Can you help me?

Thank you for getting back to me.  The problem people are between Elizabeth Walsh King (born Putman)  and Gordon Putman and his wife Alice Bailey.  Alice and Gordon Putman are Elizabeth's parents.  I haven't figured out how to get rid of those two unknowns. Thank you for any help you can give me.

Hi Savannah ,

What you need to do in order to delete a person on family tree is to go to that person on the list, double click on the person and then go to the menus on the top. On the person menu, you choose person again and then delete person.

Hope this helps!

Lora / MyHeritage team

P.S: Thanks a lot Jim and Laura for your correct replies :)

This is easy . . . lol, I had the same problem at first.

Find the person you want to delete in the family tree, click on edit, go down to person & the last option is "delete person", click it.  a window might pop asking if you are sure, click yes & the person is deleted.

Problem is, I am not getting teheedit option - on the chart or on the person card.

I was getting those options an hour or so ago. But now I cannot get it to show again!

For some reason the system has locked me out of editing my own sites!

 (I have recently - hours -  added a new site)

Open your Family Tree Builder program, When it opens and is not on the Family Tree section click on the Tree Icon with thw word Tree on it. On your right you will see alist of the people in your tree if not click on the little arrowhead to expand it and then click on list, When you see the list of people on you tree find the name you want to delete, Doubble click on that name in the list and that persons card will appear on the right pannel, Right click on the person's card and go to Person and click on Delete Person and then confirm the delete.

Hope this helps
