"You cannot share this family"

0 votes
227 views

Hello, I finished making a tree, and I want to share the tree via URL. I have done this before with different trees I've made.

However, each time I click "Share," I get this message:

 

You cannot share the family with ****** ******. Please try clicking someone else on the tree.

 

It gives me this same message no matter who I click on. Please help, I really want to share this tree.

Thank you!

You get that message if you try to share the tree with someone on the tree that is not alive.  You can only create a share link with someone on the tree that is living.

Ohhh that totally makes sense, thank you! I'm making a family tree for my Dungeons and Dragons character, so I was trying to share the tree from the family's founder, who is... well, dead. lol
