Linking to person on Tree

I added a photo, but do not see how it will relate to my tree. Is there a way to upload to the specific person for the tree.

  • When you upload a photo, tag the people in the photo. You will then see the names of the people on the right. These names are clickable. If you click on one of these names, you will go to the photos page for that person. From the photos page, there will be suggestions of possible matches in the tree. Select one of them to link your photo to the tree.

    We are just beginning to integrate with Family Tree. The photos you upload are "real" (not just test data) and you will see them from the Family Tree as our integration progresses.

    Thanks for trying Photos and leaving feedback.

    e.g. kidding, amused, unsure, silly indifferent, undecided, unconcerned happy, confident, thankful, excited sad, anxious, confused, frustrated

  • I tried selecting from the list of names on the right, but my person was not there. Finally I just "created a source" in "My Source Box" using the URL as a link.

  • You really do want to tag the photo and then link the tagged person to FamilyTree. This is how they will be visible in FamilyTree. So if your ancestor's name isn't on the selection list when you link, open a new browser window on FamiliyTree, find your ancestor, then copy the person ID into the Name or Person Id Search field and then click the Search button. It will return your ancestor's name. Click the name to link your tag to the tree.

    Here's a screenshot showing where a person ID can be entered to search for a person in FamilyTree:

  • I am trying to link my picture to my family tree and tried entering my ID. What then? My name showed up like the above example but no other information and when I went to Family Tree my picture was not there? Is it supposed to show up on the tree?

  • You will know that you have connected your person to the tree after you make the selection by checking for a green box in the upper left corner of the page. So, looking at the screenshot above, after the link to the tree is made a greenbox with name and tree data (birth/death) would show in the upper right corner and the "Possible Matches in the Tree" would be gone.

    If you really want to verify you have linked to the right person, use the green box and click in the blue name in the green box and it will take you to the FamilyTree ancestor page for the person.

    So now your person is linked to the tree and you want to see this in FamilyTree. The integration with FamilyTree is not complete, so you won't see any photos there now, but when the integration is complete, all the photos that you see on the Photos person page will be just a click away in the FamilyTree ancestor page.
