I am learning how to use the relationship finder.  The directions say to enter two IDs but sometimes i get a message that one or both of the IDs cannot be found.  What should I do in that circumstance.

Without knowing exactly what you had entered regarding the WikiTree ID, the best guidance/suggestion I can provide you with is to check out the following WikiTree G2G Post regarding the new WikiTree Copy ID feature.

Good Luck!

The most obvious is that the ID is incorrect. Do you have an example which gives you the error?

If you want to make sure that you have a correct ID, use the new ID copy system. Make sure you only copy the ID itself (Name-number) and not the URL.
