So I created one giant tree that includes both my family and my wife's. I would like to split off my wife's family into its own tree (either same account or new account, whatever is easier).
The reason I would like to do this is for privacy. I would like to invite the rest of each of our families to take a look at what we have put together. However, for privacy concerns, I don't want my side accessing hers and vice versa.
Please let me know if it is possible to split the tree, or if there is a way to bulk delete. (Aka, export GEDCOM, then import as its own tree and bulk delete my/her side).
Now you have a new site and before you sync the new tree to it you will need to instruct the software where you wish the tree to be synced to thus changing the sync request which you can find out about from the next link.
Our DNA Matching service is not active yet but will be released soon. When it is released you will receive matches immediately.The DNA file, also called ‘raw DNA data’, can only be uploaded from an "autosomal" DNA test, as only such results can technically be used for DNA Matching. The DNA files that can be uploaded, are: FTDNA’s Family Finder, 23andMe personal genome service kit and the AncestryDNA kit. You can also upload the DNA file of a combination of the autosomal (Family Finder) test with another DNA test, but only the autosomal test can be used for DNA Matching. Our DNA Matching service, when available, will then match you to other people who share DNA with you: your relatives through a common ancestor. You will be able to review your matches’ family trees (excluding living people), and filter your matches by common surnames or geographies to focus on more relevant matches. This new technology will also enable you to prove and disprove other types of matches (such as Smart Matches™ and Record Matches) and connect with new relatives in order to collaborate. You’ll benefit from our vast international user base of 82 million registered users, plus the 10 million additional registered users on Geni.com, and get matches you would not receive otherwise.You can find more details regarding FTDNA’s Family Finder and 23andMe personal genome service kit on the DNA page on your family site: How can I order a DNA test?

If it is obviously the same person, even if not every single piece of info matches, I confirm. If the info in the match is likely better than mine, I correct mine. If mine is better, it is up to the other person to correct his or hers. In very rare cases (it used to be more frequently) I get in touch with the other person, if his/ her info is especially wrong or interesting--I have turned up some gold nuggets that way. Remember that the farther you go back in time or out in space, the more often spellings are haphazard and dates calculated or estimated.
Thank you for your help. That is generally what I've been doing but recently had a rejection that didn't seem too far off the sender's information which made me question the process. I'll just continue what I've been doing.
When I add information (birth and death dates, names of spouses, etc.), I get the message "An error occurred. Please try again later", see attachment. Over and over. Sometimes when I exit the app and start over the information miraculously appears, and sometimes it does not. I have been in touch with support through both email and phone and have been told they have no idea what is causing this. I have deleted FTB, reinstalled it, syched it and nothing. Please, has anyone else had a problem like this or any idea what I can do. I would hate to lose all the people I have added these past 4 months. Thanks for reading.
Thank you, Ben. I was beginning to think it was my computer and had it looked at. Computer fine. I have tried everything I can think of on my own and sent screen shots and talked to them on the phone. Please let me know if they get back to you with a solution, and I will let you know as well.
I just opted out of my premium subscription ( ending in a few months) and wondering what are the maximums when my plan reverts to the basic plan on the renewal date and what things will disappear? The premium provides unlimited strorage and family tree members. What does the basic plan provide? Also, I am currently consuming about 4 GB ( 4,000 MB) - what photos will disappear and what will stay? And can I get them back?
When you revert back to a Basic family site subscription you will then have a limit of 250 people for your family site. Nothing however will disappear from within your site as far as your information (profiles and photos) is concerned. The only things that will disappear are your Premium features such as confirming and rejecting SmartMatches.
The storage issue may be resolved by contacting the support team should you need it. Again your photos will not be removed as we do not remove or delete any information placed by users within their own family sites or trees.
