Starting Sept. 30, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
You are now at your tree, in edit mode. From the basic
tree that the wizard created, you can add birth and death dates for
each person, and add parents, children, and spouses as necessary to
fill out the tree as far as you know it, following the instructions
provided on the page. Make sure to click the Save button when
you are done adding people.
Once your tree is complete, you have several options:
Add My Info to World Family Tree This option allows
you to add your tree to the World Family Tree Project, which will
publish it on CD-ROM. Your tree should contain at least 10 individuals
before you choose this option. For more information about the World
Family Tree Project, visit its home
Send FamilyGram Click this link to let a friend or
family member know about your new home page and tree. Enter his
or her e-mail address and a short description, and an e-mail will
be sent to them with a link to your page.
Make Tree Private This option allows you to make
your tree private. You can continue to edit it, but there will not
be a link to it from your home page that allows others to view it.
Do not select this option if you want to send a FamilyGram.
