Ha Ha Jean.
GR must have Gremlins
I uploaded a gedcom last weeks and immediately found that I had forgotten to add some newly found marrigaes.
For the first time in many years, I decided to add them to my GR tree manually.
However, the one option that I needed was Add Existing Person... only to find that this option had vanished , yet for you, it was the only option that you got!
What is going on?

I admit that on most occassions I am on the website I encounter some hitches, lately I have not been able to always be able to add new relatives, I just get the search for existing relative option only. I sign off at that stage and usually I can do my additions to the tree when I sign back on, but it can sometimes be difficult to remember where I left off, as my tree has got bigger. I still love the website, I have been absorbed in research for hour after hour, it is such a pleasure, you never know what you are going to find out next.

From past experience that is a waste of time. It normaly cures itself in a few days.Just hope it does not cause to much confusion. Just posted in case others are having problems

If you have a problem with your tree on here, tell GR about it.

There has been strange things happening in my tree today. People are appearing several times. Disappearing altogether. Ending up with the wrong links . Refusing to store new entries. Must be confusing to anyone who has access to my tree. Thank goodness I keep a copy on my computer
