Glad I am not the only one having problems!!!! am very frustrated as every time I try to add another member of my tree my father comes up as my spouse!! and I cannot add any of my fathers ancestors!!! Have tried to add his father and put in 1881 and it will not let me! keeps asking for 4 digit number! is this because it is before the 1900? obviously not as I tried to enter my grandmother and it is still asking for 4 digits!!! what is 1901 if it is not 4 digits?? Do hope this gets sorted soon as it feels a waste of time!! spent ages trying all the tips recommended but to no avail!!!!
