Remove myself as member of a family tree
member
- Close

I have been invited to join some trees and, in viewing the tree to see who they are, it automatically made me a member of that tree - how do I remove myself as a member of a tree? 

Thank you.

Hi David,

Thanks for writing to us.

If you are a member of a family site, and you wish to delete your membership of that site, you will have to request that the owner of that site remove your membership.

To do so, please contact the Webmaster of that family site to request that they remove your membership.

You can do this by going to the bottom of the login page for the Family Site and select the “Contact Webmaster” link. Fill out a message and submit.

Best Regards,

Lior

Hi

Wow - this takes away all my power to decide! This can't be right. I would suggest this is an urgent fix required in the software  otherwise this is open to a abuse (I could make Steve Jobs a member of my site and he has no say in it?).

 I am surprised there has not been an outcry about this in this era on internet democracy.

 Thank you.

Hi David, 

Thanks for your reply.

You can also remove yourself by going to My Sites, and clicking on the little X to remove yourself from a site.

I apologize for not mentioning this before.

Best Regards,

Great - thanks. I have done so succesfully. 

 I have a completely new query: is it possible to merge two trees? In such a way that it does not duplicate entries? Or even selectively, by last name?

 This will save huge time inputting data that already exists on a tree somewhere.  

if there is a post or tuturial with this subject, please refer me to this.

Hi David,

Thanks for your reply.

It is possible to merge two family tree projects in Family Tree Builder. 

In order to merge trees one of them will have to be exported to GEDCOM file format. 

Please note that there is currently no tool in place to detect duplicates and fuse them together. This means that you will need to detect duplicates manually. This can be done by sorting alphabetically, and then deleting them.

You can read about how to merge two trees on Family Tree Builder here. 

Best Regards,

Thanks Lior. Using FTB (which I have) is not an option for us as we have copious photos attached to individuals. Did I read somewhere that MyHeritate is developing more advanced sifting and merging software, that uses smartchmatch technology to detect duplictes and ask before importing? 

 There is SO much duplicated work out there on trees that this is going to become essential.

Hi David,

Thanks for your reply. 

Unfortunately it is currently impossible to merge two trees on the same site or on sites under the same user using SmartMatches.

We keep working on improving our product, so if you havee any suggestions for us, please let us know as we value such input from our users.

Best Regards,

Lior
