My identity problem is not solved! :)
It won't help with stupidity problem though... :mad:
Eh I managed to make a couple fathers their own sons, that is son is the father sounds like a trinity problem without the 3 person... :rolleyes: Need to be more careful when joining people... Have to find out how to fix that...

One thing I can't understand is WHY can't the name YOU have used be the one in your tree? If you unite people, why does it take the name you unite with to your familytree, as the "mainperson". In this way I have got a few Ås to be Aa... it is actually the same, except that today they use Å, and as I unite with some older inputs they use Aa. You could not use Å before in FS. It is impossible to go to the persons info and change that name to begin with Å as it is not your contribution! I think that as we unite these people that are same we should be able to choose the way to write the name. Do you always have to click on the there are some differences if the name fex is written differently?

Sorry about so many questions, our genealogy person is visiting USA.

Maya,

I wish that I could answer your questions, but I believe your best solution to the several issues you are asking would be found in working with someone at your local level. I assume that you are referring to the use of New Family Search (NFS). If that is true, then you need to work one-on-one with someone who can help direct you.
Have you read the Code of Conduct?
