Mistake

I have made a mistake in a branch by adding children and grandchildren of one family member who are actually the progeny of another. Is there a way of easily moving a branch or do I have to delete and start over.

I'm just a user, like you, but have made the same mistake before.  If you bring up the person you want to change, then click the "edit" button, you will see a picklist.  On this list you will see "parents".  Scroll up to "parents" and you will see options to replace parents, or detach parents, etc.  You should be able to fix the problem there.

When I click "edit", I do not see "parents".  I have the Premium version.  Do I need to upgrade to Premium Plus to see what you see?

No, I have the premium version, too.  Are you in Family Tree Builder or working directly on the website?  I'm using Family Tree Builder.

hi - this is my first time using this forum so i was kinda glad to find someone who has had a similar problem to me, but unfortunately i can't help you with your problem, im looking a solution to mine - i have added a partner in error to someone and i don't know how to delete them - all i can seem to do is edit their details.  In your question you implied that you knew how to delete them all and start over - how do i delete people added by mistake in the wrong place?

As I mentioned in my reply above, same principal.  Bring up the person you added in error.  Click on "edit".  Choose "spouse" from the list and you can detach the spouse.  You can then re-attach to a different person, if you want.  If you want to totally delete a person, I think you can find them in the list on the left side of your screen and hit the delete button.

I'm kinda having the same problems but I don't have and edit button anywhere.  I can't delete a person I can only remove facts about them.  What am I not seeing???

I'm using the Family Tree Builder software that I downloaded from the MyHeritage site.  If you are doing your input directly into an online tree, you won't have the same options.

If you are using the online tree, I don't know the answer to that question.  I'm just a user, like you.  Maybe you should contact the MyHeritage people using the email contact link.  I have used it and received prompt answers to my questions.  Good luck!

That's funny cuz I've tried to get answers from them a few times and still have heard nothing.  It's been a month or so

Using Online MyHeritage.

I was able to edit and delete people a couple of hours ago. Now it is not giving me the edit options.

Seems to have happened when I added another site, and swapped back and forth between sites. It has locked me out of editing my own sites.
