I'm trying to change the starting person (myself) on a tree I created. Is there a way to get that done, & if so, how do I do that?

There is no ability that I have found to change the founder / me person of a tree.  What you can do is export your tree to a GEDCOM or FamilyScript file.  Then you can import that file into a new tree.  The final step of the import is to select a Me person for the tree from a list of tree members.  Me = founder.  Unfortunately you will loose all pictures in the new tree and will have to mamually reload them.
