I have been collecting family information for many years. Now that I am using this website I would like to add a copy of the birth certificates that I have for some of my family members. My idea is to scan the document and add it to that person profile but I don't seem to find the option to add a document I can only add photos or links. If this exists where can I find it? or do I need to pay a subscription to have this possibility?
Another topic, I noticed on the smart matches that in some families, their names of part of their names are as "private" how can I do this in my own family tree.
Documents upload is not limited only to upgraded users. You should be able to upload document files the same way as you upload photos. What happens when you try to upload? Do you get any error message?
Smart Matches are a very good solution for peoples' need to protect the privacy of their family tree, while allowing them to be discovered by relatives.
If other users have a match with your tree, they will be able to see only the overlapping areas in your tree, plus adjacent deceased people, but not adjacent living people who were not matched (they will be displayed as 'Private').
