Your Family Group consists of the relatives that you want to stay in touch with. This is the group that you will share news, photo albums, and birthdays with.

You determine who is in your Family group based on their relationship to you and your current spouse:

  • 4th cousins and closer
  • 3rd cousins and closer
  • 2nd cousins and closer
  • 1st cousins and closer
  • Immediate Family
  • (None of my/his/her blood relatives)

In addition, you can include some in-laws in your Family Group: (for each of these your partner is considered the same as you)

  • In-laws out to 1st cousins - Your first cousins and closer AND the immediate family of anyone connected to them by marriage PLUS your immediate family and the first cousins and closer of anyone connected to them by marriage.
  • Immediate In-laws - Your immediate family and the immediate family of anyone connected to them by marriage.
  • (No other in-laws)

The default is your 4th cousins and closer, your current spouse's 4th cousins and closer, and your in-laws out to first cousins. You may update this group under Settings. You may also use the checkbox under the drop down menus to "Include users I invite to the tree" in your Family Group. When someone accepts your invite to join your tree, if they are not in your default Family Group, they will automatically be added to your Family Group.

You can add or remove individuals on their profile from the bottom, left-hand corner of the pageview. Otherwise, you may use the blue button located under their Profile photo. These people will be listed on your settings page once they have been added to this Group.
