How to Invite People to Your Family Tree

In this video, we’ll show you how to invite people to your family site and manage their settings once you’ve invited them. Inviting relatives to your family tree is a great way to collaborate and share your family history research. To invite someone and add them as a member on your site, click on their card in your family tree and type in their email address. Click “Save” and an email will be sent to this person with information on how to view your family tree. You can decide on the level of access you want to give to the people you’ve invited by hovering your mouse over the “Family tree” tab in the navigation bar and selecting “Manage trees”. You’ll see all of the family trees that you manage. To edit member permissions for each tree, select “Edit tree settings” under the “Actions” column on the right. Select the checkbox to allow all of your site members to download this family tree. This lets them download a copy of your tree and import it into their own MyHeritage account. In the Permissions section you can select which site members can edit this particular family tree. You can allow all invited site members to edit, limit editing permissions to designated site managers, or make it so that only you can edit this family tree. Update your settings by clicking the “Save” button. To set additional permissions, click on this link to the Privacy settings page. You’ll use the menu shown here on the left to change more settings. You can allow site members to invite new people to your family site, and you can allow them to post content such as photos, articles or family events. Check off any of these boxes to enable the settings, and remember to click the “Save” button when you’re done. To view the list of your site members, hover over the Home tab on the navigation bar and click “Site members.” You can use this page to manage member settings and designate a member as a site manager.
