I uploaded my DNA file from Ancestry DNA to Family Tree DNA.  I then went to post some family/ancestors and it took my mother's name and made it appear as if she was my father's mother.  A bit of a mess actually.  I want to fix it but can't figure out how to delete or edit it.   Admittedly I am obviously not very technical.  Can't even find out how to ask the tech support at FTDNA.  Would appreciate an e-mail from anyone who could help me out.  Grateful as always for wikitree.  Irene in Canada.....wiki handle Draper 917.

Hi Irene,

I don't know how to fix it on FTDNA but they do have a Forum http://forums.familytreedna.com/

and you may get an answer on there from some one who knows how to correct it.

Delete and upload again?!?!?

I second Magnus' suggestion to delete and upload again.  Before you upload again, however, try to make sure your gedcom is trimmed to those folks you really want.  If you have any adoptions in your pedigree, you need to be sure you are only showing the genetic lines at those points.
ftDNA is currently having major issues with the GEDCOM upload process, so not sure deleting would be prudent at this time.

As far as the editing process, I find that I can only edit when I use Firefox, but here is a link that may be useful:
