    • sort sibblings by birthdate instead of order of entry

      Sibblings appear by order of entry instead of date of birth. The only way around is to re-enter them by proper order and delete the old ones. It would be nice if they were automatically sorted by birthdate

          • get rid of the ads for singles. We're a conservative family.

            Get rid of the 'Naughty or Nice' singles type of ads. It almost makes me want to drop the whole application.

            • Let me view other's tree instead of always showing mine.

              I see that my friends have added to their tree. When I click on the link to see their tree it always shows mine with no obvious way to view their tree.

                We’ve been reworking this system and have starting planning out when we’re going to release it back out to you to give permission to your family to view your tree.

              • Not be a piece of garbage.

                The app has so much promise but is so absolutely annoying. What do you currently offer beyond what can already be accomplished with Facebook (describing Friends and joining a family group)? 1- Allow me to add relatives without asking them to add your app a fifth time. 2- Don't make me duplicate the work my siblings and cousins have already done. 3- Don't make me fill in info that can already be grabbed from Facebook profiles. 4- Add some real functionality beyond what Facebook already does (#1-3 are just to stop being super-annoying).

                • the IQ test ad is misleading and is false advertising

                  take this ad OFF! at the end of thest it coerces you into subscribing to phone TXT service at $9.99 /month. It is misleading because it shows "test scores" for people who have never taken the test.

                  • Symbols

                    The use of the symbols used on traditional family trees would be good.
                    For instance the symbols that are used when a divorce has occurred between two people, or when a death has occurred.
                    This would make it more user friendly instead of trying to work out dates etc....

                    • fix the browser crash error when opening Family Tree link.

                      Every time I click the family tree link Internet Explorer has a fatal error and crashes. I have asked one of my relatives to try it, and it has the same problem on their computer as well.

                          We’re introduced more variety of ads to our application. We are also in the process of still looking for even more that are useful to our users.

                          I accidently deleted my father trying to edit his divorce with my mother... Now I can't seem to link the 'new dad' with his side of my tree!

                                    • Allow adding relatives without adding them as friends first

                                      I would like to be able to send relative requests without having to add those people as friends. My friends list is for my friends, half of my relatives I've never even met, why would I want to add them to my friends list? We don't have any contact but it would be nice to be able to create a complete family tree.

                                        We are currently building familylink.com where you will be able to have an account just for your relatives. This way you can connect with your relatives without having to connect with them through your general facebook account.

                                      • let me link my relatives on my facebook to my tree

                                        When I first started my tree, I was able to click the button to link one of my facebook friends to my tree relative. Now when I click a relative, it does nothing.

                                        • let me add relatives!

                                          I can add the app, but can't add relatives. I assume that when I click "Add Relatives" I should get a list of friends to choose from, but I get a blank page.

                                            This is an issue between facebook and Opera. The box we get directly from facebook and for whatever reason it does not work in compatibility with Opera. Other apps have had problems with it in Opera as well. Both facebook and Opera have been notified of the issue.
