Instant Family Tree page

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 page.

  • 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.

  • Delete — This deletes the currently selected box in the tree.
