Start by adding yourself and your immediate family (to protect their privacy use month and year only for living persons)

Once you have added yourself to Red1st you can set up My Branch which gives you a starting point to add to your part of the family tree.

To use My Branch, Login and then Edit Profile on the menu bar. Click to enter My Person ID which you will find as Person ID (it usually starts with an I for Individual). Save your Profile then Logout and Login to activate. You can then find the web address of My Branch - or any other of our pages - in your web browser, please share it with your family members.

In the video you see us login and add My Person ID:to our Profile, save, then log out and then log back in to see it activated.

Note: Username and Password are case sensitive. That means you must type them exactly as you registered them e.g. If I had registered Username and Password as my Username and Password then I would have to type Username and Password with a capital U and P

Any problems just drop us a line. Hope that is helpful! If you can find me, Adrian Oates on Red1st you'll see my ID is I22291
