  • Delete Family Tree


    Uploaded a family tree a week ago and still getting this message "We are working on uploading your Gedcom. You will receive an email notification when completed. Please check later."

    How can I get rid of this or delete the tree and upload it again?

    You can't delete it, you have to contact FTDNA and get them to deleate the tree, trouble is no garantee the gedcom will upload correcty next try. This is a problem many of us are having... I've had this problem a number of times on a couple of recent kits, the gedcom worked on one kit the 2nd time I uploaded but not yet on the other kit. Same gedcom works fine on every oether site, ie Ancestry, MyHeritage, Geneanet, FMP etc... FTDNA still have a long way to go with getting thier IT up to scratch..

    See this reply I got from FTDNA recently.

    >Thank you for contacting FamilyTreeDNA!
    >Occasionally GEDCOM files will become stuck in our system. I apologize for the inconvenience. Our IT department clears stuck GEDCOMs every Tuesday of the week, and it looks like the upload on your account has been canceled as a result. We recommend uploading your file once more at your earliest convenience.

      Did you try checking the advance options? I believe there is an option there where family tree can be deleted and once deleted can't be undone.
