Adding people

You can either select the '+ Add a relative' icon at the top of your tree, which will open the sidebar menu. From there, you can add the relative's details.

Important note about living relatives

As well as ancestors, it's likely that your family tree will include living people and their personal information. For anyone who is still alive, you should always seek their permission before you add their details to your family tree.
