I want to add this person to the Smith & Booth tree plus the Albright/Allbright files.  I have looked and cannot seem to do this now.  I asked him to join and he did but he seems to have control over his own file??  Please advise me how to do this.

I doubt that he removed me but have written him asking him to have me put on his trusted list.  Just want to add him in for all the family profiles.

 

Thank you.
I just checked and you are on the Trusted List.

When he joined, at your request, his email was added to the profile for him making him the manager and giving him complete control. This does limit what you can do to the profile, but you did ask him to join.

Thank  you.  Now have several people on the list who will not be adding much, but hopefully they might!  Will write him and ask him for access.
I am sorry, but on my page for David Booth it shows him as "only" as family member.  I do not recall giving him this file??

I must be doing something wrong so please advise me on this.
Family Member is one of the forms of membership here. Those who have been invited by other members are in this class of membership and they have the same rights as any other member, but it is easier for them to join that way.
When you invited him you put his email on his profile, that made him the manager. All members have control over their own profiles.  Sorry to say if you do not want them to control their profile you should not invite them to join.
There had to be a change in this procedure which I was unaware of.  Originally you could have people join and not have control of their own profile.

This is something I needed to know and have written him asking him to be put oh his trusted list.

Thank you.
I am not aware of any change about this. It could be that for the first time, for you anyway, after joining the new member removed you from the trusted list, thus blocking you from any edits.
