up until now i had a family tree i started from the FTB software.
i wanted to let people edit their family data in the family tree so i exported a GEDCOM file and impoted it directly from the family web site.
now it's really important for me not to completlly lose control over the tree, and as i see it i have two options:
1. let every member change and do whatever they whant with the tree
2. set the tree to be editable to only site admins and to manually allow selected people to change the family tree, but in that case i have to promote them to site admins and risk the family site.
is there a way to allow people to edit data in the family tree for their own family? (i.e. from their level and down?). i know not everyone can be as carefull as me around the tree and the site, so i don't want to let everyone edit whatever they want and start reparing other members' mistakes.
From what I understand, your options are between 1 and 2. The third isn't an option except by just asking people not to edit without your permission. You could just tell them to ask you to make any corrections or additions and then you can do so as you see fit.
