How to use the Family Tree

The best way to use the Family Tree is to start by searching a person. I suggest you search for yourself (you must be logged in). Use the search box located at the top and just enter your first name. Next click the following icon under "Options for this individual" . This will display the chart of your mother and father, grandparents, and great grandparents.

If any of this information is not listed you should enter this information in, this is another common use of the family tree.

How to add a new family member?

Let’s say you want to add a father or mother to an individual.

First, Search and click on the name of the person you want to add a parent.

Second, you click on the "Close Relatives" tab under that person’s profile.

Third, under "Family with Parents" click the  "Add a new father" or "mother." A new window will open.

Lastly, Enter the person’s Firstname/Given Names, and Lastname/Surname. You can also include whatever other information you might have like birthdate, but it’s not manditory.

Click the "Save" button at the bottom and you’re Done!
