I was sent this family tree by my wife but when I recived the link I was set to be someone else instead of myself. Some other people have had that problem too whe she's shared it. Any way to fix this?

Just in case someone else runs across this question:

1) You could ask them to send the sharing link from you specifically, instead of sharing a general link.

2) You can export your GEDCOM file and reimport it as a new family. One of the steps in that process is to say which family member is the founder. Note that pictures are not exported. Of course, this would be a new family tree, and would not be updated when the original is updated.
