In addition, I had uploaded part of my August 2014 family tree to Findmypast about two years ago, with 15,000+ persons, and it is outdated and incomplete now.
So I want to start over with Findmypast family trees - I want to delete the existing trees and upload a new GEDCOM to Findmypast with all of my 46,000+ persons and updated content and source citations.
In this post, I want to delete my existing Findmypast trees. Then, in another post, I will upload a GEDCOM file to Findmypast with all of my current research in it.
1) On the Findmypast home page, I clicked on the "Family tree" menu item tab and saw the drop down menu that lists my existing trees:
On the dropdown list, the Help function told me that I needed to click on the "View all trees" item on the list in order to manage my trees. I clicked on "View all trees" and saw the list of my trees on Findmypast:
For each tree, it tells me when it was created on Findmypast and when it was last updated, the owner, and icons for "Settings," "Export tree" and "Delete tree."
I clicked on the last tree on the list (the one that didn't upload completely in April, and clicked on the Delete icon (a trash can). The confirmation screen appeared with a big blue "Delete" button:
I clicked the "Delete" button and it was gone. I did the other two Mocavo trees next, and when I was finished, I was left with the two year old tree I uploaded in 2014:
Since this has Hints already provided for the 15,000+ persons in the tree, I will keep it for the time being.
In the next post in this series, I will upload a new GEDCOM file to Findmypast.
