    • I know the relatives I have in this country, they are my immediate family and their spouses.

      Your suggestions of who may be related to me are annoying. You don't even let me add the relatives I know for certain are my relatives.

        • put a relative back in my list of friends after one week if they don't respond to my request.

          I have sent several requests to relatives that have not responded - only because the request is gone from their front Home page by the time they look at it. I'd like to be able to send the request to be my relative again!

          • Marital status to include partnership as option

            I understand the whole idea behing tracking one's geneology is the family unit, beginning with the marriage of two parents later bearing offspring. What about the eccentric uncles and spinster aunts who were happily partnered for many years in committed relationships, despite the refusal of America to recognize such relationships as valid, honorable, and morally sound.

              • Please delete me.

                I have deleted this and it still gives me notifications. It is no where in my applications and yet I'm still getting Notifications. Please remove me from this process.

                • not have a button entitled, "Sure, I'll add my relatives."

                  Such a button is offensive because it puts the message sender in the position of promoting a 3rd party application, which I, for one, would not do.

                  • stop suggesting I add my damned ex wife! How many times do I have to click we're not related?

                    If it weren't for the act that my REAL relatives like your primitive and lousy service I would dump it in a heartbeat. Wise up, if we're not on each other's lists, were NOT RELATED AND NOT FRIENDLY!

                    • make the trees more like google maps.

                      make it more functional with the mouse and zooming with the mouse wheel. Make it easier to control where family members go to fit every situation.

                        I planned to make a "father's side" and "mother's side" before realizing it makes the entire tree. Now i want to change the name/description.

                            • allow photos to be deleted without deleting the whole profil

                              Sometimes we don't pick out the best photo when setting up a new person. We should be able to delete the photo when we get a better one.

                              • Can't add all my parents: birth parents, adoptive parents, step parents

                                Can't add all my parents: birth parents, adoptive parents, step parents. First, I added my birth mother and birth father and their other children by other (my step parents), but when I added my adoptive father, it erased all their information and deleted them in my tree.

                                      • It's really moronic to show my relatives but have no Edit link to update the ones I just added!

                                        There are too many applications created by too many clueless people, making Facebook a cluttered, unnavigable mess!

                                        • to be able to arrange family reuions

                                          which joins all the generations together...that have lost touch over the years...calender to be able to set up regular re unions every 6 or 12 months and an app that enables this message to get across so as the reuions get bigger over time...
