Family tree, How do I delete a profile that I have added in error. I have found the delete button for each "event" within an ancestors profile, but cant find out how to delete each person without editing their name & changing it to "freds Mum" etc
cant find anything in the help section
Regards Don

Be very careful about this, particularly if you have other people attached to that profile. i.e. parents, children, etc.

I would detach the person from all relationships and then delete.

Go to Edit this Person (up by the image icon), click on the Relationships tab to make sure they aren't attached to anyone, remove any relationships, and only then click on the little garbage can up on the top right to delete that person.

To remove persons attached to the person you want to delete (if you want to remove spouse/descendants), you can not remove them via the "Relationships" tab unless you click on each person listed there and use the actual delete procedure.

If you use the red-X on the Relationships tab to separate the relationship, it does not delete the person -- just detaches them and leaves them in your tree.

Yes, it isn't a delete person. The OP was happy with his results.
