Um, what do you mean?  Which tree?  if you did something that looked like it changed something - and did not save it should be ok - otherwise the changes tab is usually there and you can undo what was inadvertently done in most cases

so, not to worry

I was looking at someone else site and added Thomas Jefferson Baggett where I was supposed to add Thomas John Baggett. I can find the change Tab.
I need to remove Thomas Jefferson Baggett and on from my site.

This is were it went wrong Starting on with Thomas Jefferson Baggett my ancestor their with Thomas John Baggett B:1835 Florida D: 1909 Wiggins Stone County Mississippi.

This is where what went wrong?

Can you be more specific as to the problem that you're seeing?

His "half-brothers" are not linked to a mother (which is why they are listed as "half"). Is that what you mean? If so, then just connect them (assuming they should share the same mother)

no Dennis I am pretty sure our friend Wayne wants to take Thomas Jefferson Baggett out of there as he is in the wrong place - but where should he go to Wayne - what branch of the tree do we put him on?

I think I'm starting to understand what happened, but we still don't have quite enough information to help...

Is sounds like you were trying to connect your ancestor, Thomas Jefferson Baggett [Baggett-533] to his father, but you typed the wrong ID by mistake, and so connected him to the wrong parent. Correct?

Just go to the Edit tab, and on the right side of the page, click "replace/remove father". There will be a place to put in the correct ID number.
