How do i add my grandfather to my profile

+2 votes
New member here. Been trying for two weeks to add my grandfather thomas to my tree on profile page but keeps getting  rejected as it states he would be 132 years old. He has the first name of my father but I have included his middle name which is different than my father's. I doubled checked the dates but it just won't  except him. My father Arthur Lee Thomas born 1929 it accepted. My grandfather Arthur patrick Thomas born 1888 it refuses to accept no matter what I do. HELP please

I will create a profile so you can add him.

Ok. I do not know what went wrong with your addition, but I have created a profile for him.

So now you should go to your father's profile, go to edit, and then on the right: add father. Then do NOT enter data, but enter Thomas-45875 in the most upper entry box.

Then the next step is to create your grandmother and add their proven marriage date. Please make sure there is not already a profile for her.

Please edit the birth location and add sources. Also for your father: please add town, state, country etc (I am guessing you are form the USA, but that is a guess).

Let me know if you need anything else.

(edit) PS: if you tried to add your grandfather to your profile as your father, then that was the cause of the error. You have to go into your father's profile and from there add him.
I get an error: your e-mail has not been confirmed and/or is not linked to your profile Thomas-45000. Please check.
Thank you so much. I am still learning. Also will check my email confirmation
