    • Connect family trees with others when they match

      You could find new relatives, or learn about other relatives that you did not know because of this. Its like many people working on one family tree, and filling in things you never knew about your family!!

        Hello everyone!! Thanks for letting us know about your desire to connect trees. This is a very very difficult problem to solve when dealing to merging trees. That being said, we are looking into it. This may take 3 months or more! Thanks for your votes!

          This is a browser related issue. It’s only showing up in some browsers. We’re working on figuring out what it wrong so that the photos will show up again.

            • fix the syncing between the we're related app on fb and the familylink site.

              I've been using the "We're Related" app for a little while now and I have several family members added to this profile. many of my family have used the app specifically for posting info we don't want displayed on our fb walls

              The problem I'm reporting has to do with the failure of this info being displayed when I visit the "Familylink.com" site. I can login to this site with my FB credentials but none of my FB app data flows to the site. Instead I get shown a page that doesn't have any of my relatives and displays only…

                Thanks for letting us know that it doesn’t sync correctly for you. The familylink.com is still in beta and we apologize for anything that goes wrong when using it but remember that we’re still building it.

              • Let me see my family's profile pictures..

                Whenever I go to My Relatives page, the generic facebook picture is all that is posted for all of the profile pictures.. This does not help when trying to edit relationships, or even trying to see if someone is added.. apparently I've added people twice because I can't tell who is who. Please fix this. Thanks!

                  This is a browser related bug. We’re working on getting it fixed so that the browsers affected won’t have this problem any more.

                • Photo selection by user

                  I don't like the way the application automatically populates every photo album from your own and your relatives' facebook accounts. I would rather have this photo space separate from those and have the option to select which pictures I want shown in connection to my family tree. I don't necessarily want to see my brother's vacation photos of landscapes on my family tree photo space.

                    If you don’t want a certain family member or members of your family to see your facebook photos, you can limit the privacy on your facebook account for the photos. The limitations of who can see the photos will carry over to We’re Related. We’re also working on a system where you can choose what is imported.

                  • Allow for multiple family trees

                    I would like to upload multiple family trees for different branches of my family. Then allow each tree to be shared with different family members.

                      It doesn't allow me to change a photography once it has been selected.

                      After wiping out family tree and starting all over again the images populated by themselves in the wrong family name/person.

                          • Allow support for Unicode characters

                            As it is We're Related isn't optimised for use with other languages than english. ASCII, which I'm guessing that the application uses, is very limited in its use since it doesn't include many foreign characters used in most european countries.

                            Unicode on the other hand is much more universal in its use, since it supports the aforementioned characters. Essentially Unicode would make the application much more appealing to international users and it is relatively simple to implement in most cases.

                              I added another relative the other day -- and the display screen when I looked at it yesterday (3-26) is completely different fromw what I saw a week ir so ago.. Noq I see only some of my relatives, and there is no way to scroll up or down that I see to be able to view all the relatives. AMoreover, as I do not see the newest relative added, I can't put in her status as a cousin. What happened?
                              Also, I have no idea how reordering relatives is upposed to work, Can you provide instructions how to move…

                                A fix is in the plan. However in the meantime there is a hack to get around it for users. If you pick up a relative in your last row of relatives that you can see, and then drag it downward it will reveal more of your relatives and you can do this until you can edit them all.

                              • 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.

                                • show entire family tree not just the lineage of one person

                                  It would make creating my family tree much easier and useful if my name showed up in the middle and the tree added boxes around me instead of me having to select one person at a time and adding to them. It's frustrating not being able to see the whole picture.

                                    We’re looking at ways to allow you to see more of your tree.

                                  • Graphically represent everone in the tree

                                    Create a visual representation (icon) for each person (sibling, cousin, etc) who is in the tree, instead of simple listing them when you mouse over a person. This would create a simpler and faster interface for users to absorb the data within the tree.
