How do I add photos and documents to my family tree?

You can upload a photo or document to an individual's profile on your family tree by first selecting them on your tree to open their profile, then choosing ‘View full profile’.

From here, select the 'Media' tab and then 'Upload new' if you're adding a photo from your device or 'Attach existing' if you want to choose one that's already on your Findmypast family tree.

Finally, choose the file from your computer by either dragging and dropping it or uploading it.


You then have the option to add further information about the photo or document.

You can also choose a main profile photo for each person in your family tree.


Select their avatar from their full profile and either upload a new photo from your device or select one that's already on your tree.
