Changing the last name for a site member
Adam McChesney
- Close

I was looking through the list of my site members of one of my family trees, and I see that for one women that recently got married and therefore her last name changed, I see now she has two site member accounts in the list, one that is related to her person in the tree, and one that is not. Is there a way to sort of clean up these extra records, and what is the proper way to update a person's last name and switching the e-mail address from one person to another person that is a active member of the site?

Note in switching e-mail addresses from one person to another, this one I see on one person who I am thinking I added to the husband (my cousin) first, and then realized it was actually his wife's e-mail address so I switched it. Now in looking in the site members I do see her name, but it looks like it is the husband's profile. For instance, the immediate family section only shows the husband's parents and siblings and not the wife's parent. How do I update this, so it does link to the correct person in the tree?

Actually I did figure out now how to mainly fix this. I figured out how to change the relationship to the member by using the "more" menu and then I just deleted the extra account.

 

However I still don't agree with that whenever you change a person's last name that they would be "reinvited" to the site and a new "site member" account created. What is the reason that this happen, and is there anything I can do so the person wouldn't get reinvited?
