Does anyone know how to add a second tree as Im tracing a line for a friend thats unrelated to mine

Do you need to open a second account?

I really don't know, but think that might be the answer.



DazedConfused Report 13 Apr 2013 11:23

Yes, you need to open a 2nd account. And on a different email address too, so you may need to open a gmail account (or something similar) in order to do this.

I am sure someone more computer savvie than me can explaln how to open up a new gmail account. Me I ain't got a clue!! :-D

You could open a tree on Tribal pages.Its free

You can open a second tree on here and you don't need a different email either.

The instructions are on the Help Pages, albeit tucked away a little bit

Yes I have one for the OH just created a disposable email account for that one to keep it simple.
Only pain is while you can open that tree to another paid member they cannot open to you, when you try to view the "gimmie your money" Genes page comes up!

Ay lets you create as many trees as you like. GRU promised this more than a year ago, along with fixing print and other delights.

Still be grateful we have a new boards fairy. Maybe she has some magic dust.

AFAIK TP, Genie et al do not allow GED export.

I have two free accounts in addition to this subbed one, same email but you do need to use different passwords.

Just log out and re-register with same email but different password then when you sign in you will be offered the choice of which account you wish to use for that session.
