  1. I had hoped to see something written about not entering the person’s identification number within the name data field. A data contributor keeps doing that on several of my family lines and all it does is create a new individual, with a new PID# & needing temple ordinances

  2. I have a 2Xgreatgrandmother who is listed in two different families and should only be in one.How do I delete the wrong one?

  3. On your tree, there is wrong parents attached to a descendant of mine. It will not let me delete the incorrect parents or edit any part of that. It has created difficult and confusion. The person is Henry of Scotland married to ada de Warenne . His parents are David I king of Scotland and Matilda. If you could fix this or tell me how to fix this, that’d be great. As of now it’s showing his wife and him are brother sister which isn’t the case by a simple google search.
