How do I edit someone's details in my online family tree?

Open your online family tree and locate the person whose details you wish to edit.

You can use the search field in the upper-right corner to find the person you need. Start typing the name of the person and select the correct name from the drop down box displaying the results.



Each person in the tree is represented by a ‘Person Card’. Men are represented by blue colored cards and women are represented by pink colored cards.

Places to add new persons are represented with a plus sign. Parents are always located above people you have already entered and children are always located below.

To edit basic details about a person, click on the ‘Pencil’ icon on a Person Card.



The following screen will appear, where you can ‘Edit Details’:


If you wish to edit more details, you can take a look at the left side information panel that shows the list of all facts related to this person, photos the person is tagged on and all other information.

Here you can perform additional actions such as adding a photo or a fact and viewing this person’s profile.

Click on ‘Profile’ to open this person’s profile page and edit more details as described here: What details are displayed on my personal profile page?
