site manager
Tobia DiLella

When I originally site up my tree I must have inadvertently used my grandfather as the main person/site manager. Now everyones status is compared to him ie I'm the granddaughter. It also shows all emails coming from him and he's been dead for 30 years. Spooky....

 

 I've tried adding myself as a site manager but it doesnt change.

 

Suggestions??

How did he become a member of your site to begin with?

He's not a member per se he is the main person. I'm not sure what I've done...I wonder if it is fixable....

Yes, it's fixable. Go to 'Settings', then 'Home Page' then 'Other', and at the bottom you can type in the name of the person that you want to be the Main Person. 

 

Good luck. Laughing

Steve,

 

I tried that but when I click on a person it still shows their relationship to my grandfather and not me. He is still the main root person.

 

Thanks though!! I think I'm going to have to live with it....:-(

Hi Tobia,

You just have to associate the address that you signed up with, with the correct person in the tree (you!). 

To do so, please see the following post in our FAQ:

 How do I associate myself to the family tree on my site?

 Best Regards,

Thank you but it did not work. I followed the directions to a tee and I'm still the 'granddaughter'. sigh.

 

 I think I need to change the association of the email address but havent found out how to do that, yet.

Hi Tobia,

I went to your site to try and associate you correctly to your tree. Are you in your family tree? What is your name in the tree?

No, you can definitely change it, because I too chose the wrong person originally. The change may have to be made in the Tree Builder rather than the uploaded site.

Tree Builder is the 'source file'. It's the one that's stored on your computer, and when you've added names and dates etc, you 'publish it' to the Internet.

Go to your 'Home Person', click 'Edit', and then highlight 'Relation' from the drop-down list, and there you can set whomever  you wish to be the 'Home Person' of you Family Tree.

 

Hope this works.
