How to add my grandfather

Contributed by Amina Abou Radwan on 23.05.2008:

I have sarted the ‘Abou Radwan’ family tree of Jaffa city with my father. Now I need to add my grandfather, so I can add uncles and aunties. Is it possible to do it, or I should delete all 30 entries and restart? Many thanks Amina Abou Radwan – London

Hi Amina,

yes, it’s possible to add your grandparents. But first you have to add your parents. Then go to the parent you want to add a father or mother to, and click on the edit symbol (little horizontal lines). There you can add both mother and father. When you’ve done that, you can then go to the newly added grandparents and click again on the edit icon. There you can add their children – your uncles and aunts. If you have any more questions please contact me at james@palestine-family.net.

Best,

James

Hi James,
Many thanks for your kind reply. I have followed the above mentioned instructions few times and filled the page for my father father and mother and click SUBMIT and they vanish.
I have done it again tonight twice, sadly with same result. What should I do? I have even tried to put them in one time as alive, with same result.
Best regards

Hi Amina,

I just logged in as administrator and went to your entry. I put in two parents on your father’s side (“test male” and “test female”) without a problem. I don’t know why it didn’t work for you. You can modify the two people I put in with their real names and details. Let me know if it works. I can also add more people for you. Which browser (Explorer?) and operating system (Window 98?) are you using? If you have access to another computer with a newer operating system try to put in parents with that and see if it makes a difference.
Best,
James

Dear James,
Me again sorry. I can see the family name in ‘the family trees’ but not listed alphabetically in ‘names’ at the main page.
Many thanks.
