Tips for using and navigating the site

When you are not logged in and go to www.myfamilytreesite.com you enter the site at the Home Page.  

This page contains a Welcome statement that provides information about the site, a place to login, a search box, and list of surnames.
 
Registered users can login to see information on living people close to you in the tree.  
 
When you login you are taken to your "My Page" page. Here you are presented with a pedigree chart showing you, your parents, and grandparents. 
Also on this page are Today's events, Upcoming events, Recent events, and any Favorites you have saved.
 
Clicking on a person's name anywhere a name is displayed takes you to that person's record. 
 
At a person's record there are several tabs where information is presented: "Facts & Events", "Families", "1st Cousins", "Interactive Tree", and "Album".  The right sidebar at a person's record is a Family Navigator where the person's parents, siblings, spouse, and children are listed. 
 
The "Interactive Tree" tab displays all a person's ancestors and descendants in a moveable tree that you can traverse.  Click on any person in the tree to go to their record.  Note: the Interactive Tree does not work on touch devices such as smartphones and tablets.
 
Another way to view the tree is to click on the "Tree View" tab in the row of tabs at the top of the screen.  Select the branch you want to view - ie: "Descendants of Francesco Cozzoli".  From this list you can click on any name to go to a person's individual record.
