Frequently asked questions
Most genealogy sites show the tree in different ways, but none of them can be configured, changed, or updated by you. Only the site administrator can perform updates.
This website is interactive. Anyone whose family is in this extended tree can update, add, and make changes to their close branches after retrieving permission by the site administrator.
With this website you can:
- Keep privacy of living people; the site administrator determines whom you can see.
- Enjoy many possibilities to view the tree: as different charts, reports, or lists.
- It's a collaborative tree; with the site administrator's permission, everyone can take part in updating the tree.
This website does NOT require registration to gain access to data on deceased individuals. However, to contribute or to see facts on presumed living relatives, you will need to register and advise us of your relationship.
Only registered users (who are a part of this pedigree or have relatives in this pedigree) can see names of living people. When you are not registered you will only see "Private" instead of the names of living people.
Nur eingetragene Benutzer, die ein Teil dieses Stammbaums sind oder Verwandte in diesem Stammbaum haben, können Namen von lebenden Personen sehen. Wenn Sie nicht registriert sind, werden Sie nur "Privat" statt der Namen von lebenden Personen sehen.
Es hat also keinen Sinn, sich zu registrieren, wenn Sie nicht ein Teil dieses Stammbaums oder nicht verwandt mit irgendjemandem in diesem Stammbaum sind.
The registration is quite easy. On the homepage there are boxes. Immediately on top on the right side there is a box with the heading "Ahnen-Recherche von Yvonne Kibys". There is a button called "Request new user account".
Fill the form and don't forget to tell in which relationship you stand to this family tree.
Approval of the new user account must be done manually by the site administrator. Usually it will take less then 24 hours. I will try to check your registration as fast as possible.
Maybe I have forgotten a setting or a mistake has crept. Please, get in touch with me : Yvonne Kibys
At the moment you are only a member and you are not able to change data or add. If you like to do this and you want to co-operate with pleasure and actively in this family tree, then inform me by email : Yvonne Kibys
Then I will change your status on "editor" and already you are able to add records or to change. Same is also valid for adding of pictures or documents.
However, please make this application for status change only if you really like to help in this family tree. Otherwise it makes no sense to change your status.
Nevertheless, all changes finally need my permission. They appear on my monitor and I have to approve them.
Should you have problems while editing or adding of data, I will also write an explanation here for it.
If you like to complement data or change and you don't want to do this online, you can send to me your changes or supplements also by email.
You believe that this column would have to be extended here still by other questions and answers? Then let me know it ! I will extend the "frequently asked questions" as soon as possible.
